Native Texan and longtime Westport resident Yvonne Dougherty opened Doc’s Café in September 2000, and her eclectic, family-friendly coffee shop has been a fixture in the town’s Saugatuck neighborhood ever since. Yvonne fell in love with the coffee business in the mid-nineties while serving as an entry-level barista at Juba’s, a small café housed in the former Peter’s Bridge Market space. Over the past decade, Doc’s Café, buoyed by a loyal following of commuters and lunch patrons, has served tens of thousands of expertly crafted cappuccinos, lattes and cups of their signature French roast blend, Sledgehammer.
