WAPATO, Wash. — As sit-down coffee shops across the country struggle to keep going during the shutdown, Fiddle’s Coffee House & Juice Bar in Wapato has turned to creative construction, building a makeshift drive thru at its front entrance.

Built around the front door, the drive thru allows customers to drive or walk up to order coffee, fresh juice, pastries, paninis and breakfast sandwiches on the go.

“A lot of our regulars have been coming in and supporting us so that’s been keeping us busy,” co-owner Fidel Negrete said.

Fiddle’s is offering daily specials, plus a a 10 percent discount for customers who bring a receipt from another local restaurant, coffee shop or winery.

“It’s really nice seeing the community working together to help out small businesses,” Negrete said.

Fiddle’s Coffee House & Juice Bar is located at 721 W. First St. in Wapato. It’s open  7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and closed Sundays.
