About the Owners
WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU
Christopher and Debbie James, owners of the Tea Cup Café and Bakery, have a heart to serve others. Motivated by their Christian faith, they have set out to create a place that is family friendly as well as top quality. Wanting to create jobs, after different main employment suppliers had to lay off a number of employees, they have invested in the community by creating various businesses to provide work in our small town. Living Waters Ranch was started in 1997 by the James' and still provides housing and a quiet retreat to a vast number of visitors. Debbie had the desire to grace the town with a beautiful new restaurant for locals as well as travelers to enjoy. In 2013, the Tea Cup Café and Bakery was born. Located on Main Avenue in Challis, Idaho, it is a prime location and easy to find. The café was built from the ground up, but wanting to preserve some of the history of the old west town, their contractor refurbished wood from the previous buildings to construct stunning handcrafted tables for our guests to enjoy a scrumptious meal on. Keeping the environment very neat and clean as well as offering friendly service is a main priority to both Debbie and Christopher. Between the two of them, and the help of many in the community, as well as the Lord, they have accomplished so many of their goals. They have been blessed and feel the need to reach out to the community and share the blessings with the people they care about. Their heart for others and each other is very evident in their every day dealings. They truly are a blessing to the community and to every one that they come in contact with!
