Daphne’s Coffee Shop is a welcoming coffee shop named for Littleton matriarch & artist Daphne Fitts. Proudly serving a full coffee program next to Main Street Wines & Blue Jay Bistro.
Daphne loved Littleton, her church, her many friends, and the simplicity of living in a small town where everyone knew each other, and your neighbors were considered family. Whenever anyone needed a helping hand Daphne was always there to help. She loved her morning coffee, reading scripture, and enjoying the day’s lesson in her Methodist Upper Room Booklet.
Daphne was a gifted artist, professionally trained, and accomplished. Her artistic talent was highly respected and her portraits were sought after by everyone in town; throughout her life in Littleton, she painted 75 portraits of residents and she was especially fond of children who would sit patiently after school posing while their mom observed Daphne’s work with pride.
Daphne stopped painting when she turned seventy-five and spent her time on her other passion, acting, where she especially loved to be cast and play male roles.
Daphne was a devoted mother and an even greater grandmother; each year her grandchildren would countdown to summer when they got to spend a few weeks with Mema. Daphne passed away in 1999 at the young age of 87.
Daphne’s Coffee Shop represents the kindness and love Daphne had for the Littleton community and how much she enjoyed her coffee. Her early artwork adorns the walls of the coffee shop and when you come in for a great cup of coffee, you’ll always be under the watchful and loving eyes of Daphne.
