Founded in 2018 by Jon Funk with his daughter-in-law Sara Funk, Mud and Char, Caffeine & Fare is the cultivation of a dream to combine Jon’s love of coffee with Sara’s love of food. They created a local cafe that is laid-back, bright and welcoming. A place to grab a quick, fresh bite to eat, meet and caffinate!

The coffee shop is a true family affair with members of two generations working at the cafe everyday. Jon’s son, Josh and his nephew, Tommy are both on staff and contributing exciting new drink and marketing ideas every day.
