Long-time Sully restaurant under new ownership

Sully’s Coffee Cup Café now has new faces serving up customers’ favorite plates. Wednesday, June 14, marked the official change in ownership from Terry and Paula Nikkel to new owners Daryl and Pam Van Brogen and Matthew and Diane Oswalt.

Terry and Paula Nikkel, who purchased the business in 2017, will continue to operate Prime Country BBQ & Catering, which they acquired in 2021. In their last Facebook post as owners, the Nikkels said, “We are forever thankful for all of you: Our customers who became like family; our employees who endured all the changes and gave us grace upon measure; and our family who stayed by our side with love and support. We pray a huge continued success to the new owners. Please show them the same love we’ve had the last six years.”

The new owners are excited about the undertaking and know it will be a team effort.

“Matt and I have always had a dream to own our own place,” said co-owner Diane Oswalt.

“We looked into other businesses, but it never felt right,” said co-owner Diane Oswalt. “When we found out Coffee Cup Café was for sale, we knew it was the one! The town is amazing, and we both had prior work experience in the restaurant business and loved it.”

The Oswalts, who previously worked as over-the-road truck drivers have partnered with Diane’s parents, Daryl and Pam Van Brogen. Daryl is retired from Pella Rolscreen and Pam worked at Sully Locker and Market. They bring with them a passion for Coffee Cup Café and a desire to keep it running.

Coffee Cup Café will continue serving pizza, tacos, and cream puffs. There are a few items that have dropped from the menu, including the Cordon Bleu. The new owners are also considering whether to implement the infamous broasted chicken.

Other changes include: No extra charge for shared plates; kids will receive one free refill on milk and juice; and a monthly drawing for a free pizza or slice of pie.

“We would eventually like to do a ‘thirsty’ Thursday and serve beer and chicken wings in the evening,” said Diane. “Stay tuned!”

The new hours for Coffee Cup Café are: Monday and Saturday, 6 a.m.-2 p.m.; Tuesday through Friday, 6 a.m.-2 p.m., 5-8 p.m.; and closed Sunday.
