It is delicious. The tasty, fresh milk used in all drinks comes from family run dairy Windy Ridge. All natural Monin syrups add the flair and flavor. Ghirardelli Chocolate powers the amazing hot chocolates. Tea’s come from Beecher’s in Wexford and their aroma is heavenly. All providers are local, small and carefully selected.
With all that in mind, if you’re looking to catch up with friends, play board games, relax with your tablet while browsing the web with free wi-fi, or just hanging out at a cool little shop while enjoying a tasty drink and snack, look no further, Wunderbar Coffee House is the place for you.
The shop is operated by its owners Vicky and Roc who decided to open the coffee shop heartbroken after Beecher’s in Zelienople burned down. After several years of searching for a good location opportunity, the couple were approached by their friends Josh and Dana who were looking at buying the old opera house to turn it into an environmentally conscious community center, focused on healthy living named The Center of Harmony. Previously called Otto ‘n Gerts, the space was perfect and the deal was sealed. Wunderbar opened it’s doors on January 14th, 2012.
Housed in an 1880′s built opera house and odd fellows hall, the coffee shop has an old world feel, decorated with black and white photos and yellow, red and black colors in the walls and furniture, staying in line with the German heritage of the town making it a unique space and truly “Wunderbar”.
Wunderbar is part of The Center of Harmony, a group of collaborating businesses housed in an old opera house and surrounding buildings who are focused on preserving the environment, strengthening the community and empowering people to live healthy, happy lives. This is a place where positive, forward-thinking and dynamic people come together to thrive and grow.

You’ll discover a lot of incredible history in Harmony. This quaint village of old brick and log buildings is one of Western PA’s most historically important places and its first National Landmark District. Harmony was founded in 1804 by the Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists who were seeking religious freedom. They quickly became 19th century America’s most successful communal group.
The Harmonists, who believed Christ’s return was imminent, adopted celibacy to remain spiritually pure, but also assuring the group’s eventual demise. When the Harmonists sold the town and 6,000 acres to second founder Mennonite blacksmith Abraham Ziegler in 1815, Mennonite families led the area’s resettlement.
A half-century before Harmony’s founding there was a Delaware Indian village at the site, Murdering Town, visited by George Washington during his 1753 mission that sparked the French & Indian War. Nearby, the war’s first shot was fired at Washington by a French Indian.
Harmony’s Landmark District retains the old world architectural character of an old German village and includes more than 50 buildings. Nine area properties are owned by the nonprofit historical society and preservation group, Historic Harmony, which offers tours of the Harmony Museum, a log house and a Harmony Society duplex. You can self-tour the Harmonist and Mennonite cemeteries; other sites may be visited by appointment.
Visitors can see even more preserved buildings as several specialty shops occupy former Harmonist and other structures. An enjoyable afternoon can be spent admiring antiques, gifts, florals and decorative accessories that add even more charm to the already charming village. While enjoying the merchandise, sip a cup of coffee or savor the sweetness of an ice cream cone. And if all of that activity makes you hungry, enjoy lunch or dinner in a former railroad president’s Victorian mansion. You’ll quickly discover that spending an afternoon in Harmony is simply harmonious.
