About Us

Legend has it that the Goddess Calypso once emerged from the depths of Lake CDA and waltzed into town, realizing there was no good place for a cup of coffee and a chat. She fixed that, and Calypsos was born. 

Just kidding.
We’re a locally owned coffee house and roaster based in the lakeside paradise of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Calypsos is family owned and operated, and hopefully will be until the a big corporation offers us enough money to buy a big lakeview mansion for us and all our wonderful staff to live in.

Also just kidding. Sort of.
We take pride on being a popular spot for a cup of coffee, a scoop of ice cream, a delicious bite to eat, and a place to hang out. Calypsos doesn’t discriminate, and our customer base encompasses everyone from concrete-splattered construction workers sitting down in a comfy chair with our homemade soups, or business folks in suits and ties having important meetings in our smart room.

No matter who you are, or where you’re from, everyone can find common ground at Calypsos.
