Sip, Shop & Stay

Rest and Reconnect


Coffee & Food

Regular coffee, lattes, pastries, and a lunch menu. Something for all taste buds.


Unique Gifts

Locally made soaps, candles, and mugs. A gift section that really does offer something unique.



Two upstairs rooms above the coffee shop provide a comfy retreat for people traveling on business or visiting family.



Nestled in a small, charming town called Antwerp sits Genesis House Coffee Shop, where people come to rest and reconnect.

The coffee shop is located on the main level, with three rooms for visitors to find a cozy spot to visit with a friend, read a book, or get work done.

Antwerp is located in between Fort Wayne, Indiana and Defiance, Ohio, nearly 25 miles from each destination. Visitors have the friendly small-town atmosphere with quick access to stores and entertainment the larger cities nearby provide.


Sisters Sue and Cindy started Genesis House with zero coffee shop experience, but a lot of heart for people. Cindy is from Antwerp and has a deep love for the town. She wanted to provide a relaxing and inviting coffee house space. Sue wasn't going to let her sister have all the fun, so she dropped everything in Madison, Wisconsin and moved here to help. Together, they make it work! They are humbled to see this little spot become a place for reconnecting.

Unfortunately, in July, 2018 Sue decided to head back to Wisconsin to be with her kids and grandkids. We miss her terribly and look forward to her visits!
