A new cafe opening soon in Maple Falls will give hikers and skiers — depending on the season — a place to grab a quick bite when heading into the mountains.

Joe’s Fine Coffee will be offering specials at its grand opening planned for Jan. 12 at 7463 Mt. Baker Hwy., Suite A.

Owner Joe Pilat said in an email that he also wants it to be a place for the community to gather.
