Andrew Sonnet began Sonnets in early 1993 as a sidewalk coffee cart in front of Freedlander’s Department store in downtown Wooster, Ohio. As time went by the coffee cart became a Wooster icon and favorite stop along the way before later becoming a permanent fixture inside of the department store. In 1995, Sonnets was bought by picture framers, Todd & Kathie Power of Wadsworth, Ohio. Once into the coffee business they decided to open a second Sonnets in the front corner of the current location inside of what was then Accent Gallery. In late 1996 the original Wooster location was forced to close due to changes in the department store and all focus was directed to the Wadsworth location. By 1999, Accent Galley was gone and Sonnets occupied the entire building at 117 College Street.

Sonnets continued to grow and offer more and more items. In 1997, bagel sandwiches were introduced to the menu and in 2000 a kitchen was added to meet the demand. In 2003, the kitchen was expanded, the menu had grown dramatically, and live music was becoming a weekend staple. The stage was completed in 2006 solidifying Sonnets reputation as a favorite venue for local and national musicians to shine.

Sonnets is a warm, friendly place to get a quick coffee or to enjoy a delicious Panini sandwich.  Enjoy weekend entertainment, the freshest roasted coffee beans around, and of course… The Best Shot in the Midwest!
