Coffee on the Piazza


Call (574) 264-0330 ext. 107 or email mdoddington@ruthmere.org for questions.


Rise with Ruthmere! 

Ruthmere's popular Coffee on the Piazza series on Saturday mornings is all about fun, music and Rise n' Roll donuts! Coffee on the Piazza is a perfect time to chill out with local talent and soak up the rich environment that is the Ruthmere piazza, or as we like to call it "Elkhart's Front Porch."

From 10am-12pm every Saturday in June, July and August we will serve complimentary coffee, sell Rise n' Roll donuts, and feature local acoustic music. 

Ruthmere's Coffee on the Piazza has become a favorite place to be on Summer Saturday mornings and seating is limited, but we encourage visitors to bring their own lawn chairs and yard blankets.  No coolers or outside food/beverages are permitted.

Join us before the event for some relaxing yoga!

Experience the tranquility of yoga amidst the historic grandeur of Ruthmere Mansion, presented by Prairie Street Studios - Yoga, in collaboration with local yoga instructors every Saturday morning from June to August. Sessions will begin promptly at 9 am for $10 per person for the hour-long sessions payable to the teacher of the day. Please arrive 10 minutes before class to create a comfortable space for your flow. To ensure a comfortable and invigorating outdoor yoga experience, remember to bring your yoga mat, towel, or blanket. Additionally, bring water, insect repellent, and sunscreen to enhance your connection with your body, mind, and nature in this charming setting, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Coffee on the Piazza is presented by Tom Myers.  The 2024 Coffee is generously provided by 
The Refinery in Goshen.
