Good food, good coffee and good conversation are the secret of the Firefly's success, say owners, Cyndi and Paul Demaree.

The Firefly Coffee House on the city's north side has been a neighborhood gathering place for twenty years, which it will be celebrating this Saturday with an International Street Food Party.

Owners Paul and Cyndi Demaree believe in their community and see this venue, located at 3523 North Anthony Boulevard, as an all-ages social hub where friends and neighbors, musicians, artists and coffee lovers can gather and connect.

Earlier this week, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with the Demarees to talk about the passion they share for their products as well as their community, and what they plan to have brewing this Saturday.
