WHITMAN — A mother-daughter duo set their eyes on a new business venture during COVID and ended up owning Wicked Loft Café and Lounge.
The lounge tucked away on 7 Marble St., Suite B1, gives customers a place to enjoy a bite to eat and room to relax on plush leather couches.
Customers are amazed by the amount of space the lounge truly has, Jennifer Mitchell, co-owner of the Wicked Loft Café and Lounge, said.
The restaurant has over 1,200 square feet, which allows a spacious feel for hungry guests.
Jennifer encourages customers to come in, get a sandwich and do some work.
The menu is comprised of organic coffee, breakfast sandwiches, natural fruit smoothies, panini-pressed sandwiches, acai bowls and sweets from the bakery.
A few popular items include the turkey Reuben panini: sliced turkey, provolone cheese, sauerkraut and thousand island dressing.
Yippie Kay Yay: egg, cheese, bacon, sausage and avocado on a bagel.
Bull Rider Burrito: eggs, avocado and bacon in a wrap.

The specialty coffees are also a fan favorite at the café with their unique flavors of thin mint, peanut butter cup, butterscotch iced coffee, lavender vanilla, butter pecan, coconut dreams and oatmeal cookie.
What sets the lounge apart from typical coffee shops is using real ingredients and garnishes in their specialty coffees, such as Nutella, peanut butter and fluff, co-owner Cathy Mitchell said.
“It’s such a hidden gem you probably wouldn’t see it. But, it’s more, so you heard about it from someone else,” Jennifer said.
Why so many fires in Brockton?:Brockton was ablaze with nearly twice as many fires as last summer. What caused them?
The duo bought the restaurant from previous owners in September 2021 after Cathy graduated college and earned a business degree in 2021.
Although it was difficult at first running a restaurant through COVID, they were able to manage and pull through, Cathy said
“It’s a lot of work owning your own business, especially in a small town when it’s much harder to get customers in. But it’s well worth it, the relationships we’ve made with our customers are so important for us, and it pays off,” Cathy said.
