Vault Coffee will open in early September at 324 Sherman Ave., at the corner of Fourth Street and Sherman Avenue. Local residents Danelle Reagan and stepdaughter Haley John said they are eager to restore this local landmark, built in 1904 as The Exchange Bank of Coeur d'Alene.

Vault Coffee is designed by HDG Architecture of Spokane, which has had other recent projects on Sherman, such as The Cellar, Fire Artisan Pizza and most recently, Crafted Taphouse. Vault has combined an eclectic mix of modern and vintage decor with a nod to the early 1900s banking industry. General Contractor is Oldwave, Inc. of Coeur d'Alene.

Vault will serve DOMA Coffee of Post Falls and teas from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas, based in Danville, Ky. A variety of pastries and grab-and-go items will be also be available and the menu may expand with beer and wine in the fall. There will be outdoor seating and special events planned into the season.

"There is great synergy right now in downtown Coeur d'Alene and we're happy to be a part of that," Reagan said in a press announcement. "We're also pleased to serve DOMA Coffee as they have a great product, a loyal following and are very community-oriented."

    "In the spirit of the free market"? Seriously, the owners of the building aren't allowed to do with the building as they chose in the free market world of Rebmcneill? Really? I think I will give the new place a try....who knows, it might even be better than Java!

    I personally think Java made their new location better! Everybody wins!

    Let's just say the new owners have a way of getting what they want. Just saying.....word is out on the streets.

    Says me and many others... My guess is the new occupant of the vault stole the idea and likely lacks any creative thinking needed to operate a successful eatery and will ultimately fail.... One things for's going to be a long winter....hopefully papa can keep funneling the money.

    I think they treated the owners of Java very rudely. In the spirit of the free market, I shall opt to go to Java for my coffee, not this new place.

    the business may have been there for 20 years but the "folks" have not. java has had multiple owners. why do you hate capitalism and the free market?

    See, you don't even know that they have "set up shop". They'll be out of business by next June.

    The elite landlords of CdA know the value of location, location, location. What a wonderful opportunity for a bored wife to have her own little coffee shop. So boot out the folks who've been there 20 years and take over that awesome location. Typical. I for one will never give them my business. And I'd put money on the possibility that Java won't exist in a year.

    Forced Java out? Have you heard of a lease? When it runs out or you fail to renew you go somewhere else. It is a negative of not owning the space you occupy.

    If its their building they can do with it what they want just like anyone else that owns property and rents or leases it out. Its THEIR property! If Java is a great business it will survive where ever they set up shop.

    Yep, I agree.... they pulled a "Pepper" i.e. "Seasons" and forced a great locally owned biz out! Maybe we can get some input from Rick Thomas on this?

    Will not be a customer of this place. Reagans forced Java out. Business as usual for the Reagans, what's in it for them.
