Walter's Coffee Shop
Midway between Homestead and Miami is a community that holds special
meaning to many Miamians, It is a community where neighbors still
wave to each other and one in which everybody surely knows your name.
Deep in the south of a lively and congested Miami, this community
feels more like a small town than just an area in a major city to
many of its residents. We're talking about Perrine and the Village
of Palmetto Bay.
And this community has a special meaning to our families. It is the
home to our restaurant, Walter's Coffee Shop, and the home to generations
of families enjoying the same lifestyle of a family-friendly, laid-back
neighborhood that we have enjoyed for decades. It is where Walter and
Jo once called home and where Lenny and Grace, Vicki and Jerry, Walter,
Adam, and Dana, still call home. So, in honor of this great village we
present to you a web page dedicated to the legacy and future of our new
fans, we invite you to take a few moments to learn about our community
and if you want to know more just stop by Walter's Coffee Shop and talk
to us. Your seat is waiting.
