Coffee drinkers on the south side of Holland now have a new option with the recent opening of Tim’s Cafe 80’s.
First opened in early November, the cafe is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for owner Tim Molina, who owns the business with his fiance Glory Rivera.
“I always had a dream to open up my own business, but I wasn’t sure what kind of business I wanted to open,” Molina said. “Since I grew up in the ’80s and they were the best years of my life, I had this idea to open up this ’80s-themed cafe.”
Molina has truly embraced the decade: Along with playing all ’80s music, iconic figures from the era and even old yearbooks line the walls for customers to look at while having a cup of coffee.
When the business first opened, Molina said the plan was to serve coffee, bagels and donuts but after receiving feedback from his customers, Molina has added to the menu.
“I originally wanted it to be a coffee and donut shop with lattes and cappuccinos and donuts but people came in here and they wanted more,” Molina said. “I started to expand the menu and we have nachos, soups, hot dogs and pizza for lunch.”
Originally born and raised in Holland, Molina attended Holland High School. Up until recently, he was working at Johnson Controls and still works another day job along with running the cafe.
Moving forward, Molina said he plans to continue to listen to his customers’ wants and needs and said the next adjustment will be adding sandwiches to the menu.
“I want customers to know that we are expanding our menu as we figure out what people want most and sandwiches are going to be coming soon,” Molina said.
Open 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Molina and Rivera man the cafe together and Molina said that, depending on business, they could expand the hours moving forward as well.
Tim’s Cafe 80’s is at 157 W. 29th St. in Holland. For more information, visit Tim’s Cafe 80’s on Facebook.
