Windfall menu now at Apple Knockers

Customers of Windfall Coffeehouse will find its menu and offerings a short way east on the other side of Prairie, at Apple Knockers. There, they can order from both menus, perhaps a Windfall Cuban Sweet Hottie sandwich and with Apple Knockers’ waffle fries and a special fry dip. Co-owners Rita Sertic and Paula Hochstetler call it a “win-win combination.”

The decision to combine the two businesses was difficult, they said. “With the challenges small businesses are currently facing, particularly, rising labor costs, escalating supply costs, and unpredictable shortages,” Hochstetler said, “we were forced to carefully consider the best path forward for our family and our community.”

Although Windfall Coffeehouse is no longer open for daily walk-in business, the dining area is now available for private party rentals. Windfall is booking bridal and baby showers, birthday, anniversary and graduation parties and business meetings. The space seats 40 people comfortably. It is available weekdays, evenings and weekends.

For rental information, call 269-315-5123. Leave a name and number and the call will be returned.  

Windfall gift cards are fully redeemable at Apple Knockers, and balance on the cards can be checked at 

Cardholders who don’t wish to use cards at Apple Knockers can mail them for a refund by April 1, 2022 to Windfall Coffeehouse, PO Box 149, Vicksburg, MI 49097 with a name and return address. After April 1, no cash refunds will be offered, but gift cards will still be redeemable at Apple Knockers.

Sertic and Hochstetler say they made the right choice, adding they’re excited to focus their energy in a new direction. “We truly appreciate the support the community has given us over the years. We are really looking forward to opening in April and offering our combined best of both businesses to our friends and patrons!” Hochstetler said.
