Habitué Coffeehouse & Cakes to Remember
Habitue Coffeehouse & Bakery – Coffee Shop Le Mars

Cheryl Wells – Owner

Cheryl and her husband Mike reside in Le Mars, Iowa. Cheryl has a passion for people and for connecting, so she opened Habitué Coffeehouse & Bakery on March 29, 2010. Cheryl’s vision was to create a space for those that came to Le Mars looking for a place to have a wonderful cup of coffee, as well as delicious baked goods and food, and relax in a beautiful atmosphere.  This vision and dream came as a result of her opening a ministry center called The Living Center in 2001 located right next door to the coffeehouse, which houses a non profit called Side by Side Ministries. In December of 2014 she purchased a 50 year old cake business (Betty’s Cakes) and the name was changed to Habitué Coffeehouse & Cakes To Remember. Cheryl leads her team and is very involved in the heart and the oversight of the business.

I’ve loved coffee since high school in the 1980’s. During my junior and senior years in high school my desire for a career path was to be a Youth Pastor. My Youth Pastor Joel told me one of the most important things about being a Youth Pastor was that you had to drink a lot of coffee. (Now going through being a parent of high-schoolers I understand what he meant!) So from that point on I’ve loved coffee. Back in those days the biggest argument was whether or not you preferred Maxwell House or Folgers. Boy have times changed! There are many independent coffee shops that don’t have a lot of nice things to say for the national coffee giants. Not me! If it wasn’t for them the specialty coffee industry wouldn’t be where it is today! Since then I have delivered coffee from the roaster to the customers, worked as a coffee roaster, managed multiple coffee shops, and have owned our own coffee shop at one point with my beautiful bride Sheila! My role at Habitué is to oversee the quality of our coffee program and train our baristas to make those incredible lattes and cappuccinos you come back for!

Favorite Verse :

I don’t have one single favorite, but I do love Psalm 19:13. It reads : Keep your servant from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.

I grew up here in LeMars and moved to Florida when I was 18. I recently moved back to work here at Habitué. My husband, Luke, and I have 4 beautiful children and are expecting another one in May. The last year has been a whirlwind for us. We made the decision to move here in January and by May we were on the road!

I love all things weddings! The excitement, the dresses, the cakes, the events…it’s all right up my alley! I am so excited to be back in town working with my family and coming alongside brides and their families to see their dreams come true.

Favorite verse:

My favorite verse is Psalm 91:4. “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
