Double Decker Espresso Bus

DO NOT GET A CUP OF COFFEE BEFORE YOU COME TO PICKLE JAM ON FRIDAY MORNING!

Buy a delicious cup from the Double Decker Expresso Bus which will be visiting our venue, Eagle Tennis Club. How FUN is this?!?

Owned and operated by a local family, the Double Decker Espresso Bus travels around the Treasure Valley to spread fun and coffee!

Here’s their story…

One of us loves coffee, one hates it. Never been to England. Never driven a bus on the wrong side of the road, but somehow it all just made sense. Let’s have a double decker coffee bus! We previously owned a special occasion restaurant for over a decade in Nampa (The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant). Loved our time sharing it with people celebrating many of the special moments in life. When we closed, it also felt great spending time with our growing family and learning completly different skills. Years later, the time feels right for our family to hop aboard this crazy ride! We are learning what this will look like as we go and invite you all along with us. How much fun can one have in a big, red bus?!
