For years Lucas McCoy and Jennifer Honeycutt have dreamt of owning and running a café and they have finally made their dream come true. On Aug. 16 they officially opened Jenny Penny’s, a café style restaurant located at 423 Main St. in Coshocton.

“We wanted to create a nice place for college students and business people to have a cool place to study, work and eat in,” Honeycutt said. This engaged couple, who also own and operate Old Rustic Finds shared they bought the building with the intent of opening a café but originally rented the building out for vendor shows and similar events. They decided last year to take the leap of faith and get to work on making the building into a café. They have been working for a year on creating the menu and an atmosphere customers will enjoy.

They chose the name, Jenny Penny’s, in memory of Honeycutt’s father who passed away two years ago. The restaurant name is in honor of the childhood nickname her dad used to call her.

While the café was McCoy’s idea, he credits Honeycutt for spearheading this venture. “Jennifer was the mastermind behind this. I like to cook, and she likes to talk to anyone and everyone so this will be perfect for us,” McCoy said.

Jenny Penny’s will be serving coffee, soup, salads and sandwiches. They will also specialize in Paninis and crepes, although the crepes will come later. Their hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
