True Grit Coffeehouse

True Grit Coffee House is located in Loch Lomond, owned and managed by Dottie Bates – a barista with ten years of experience in the industry. Dottie Bates considers coffee a unique element that can make anybody’s day; she opened True Grit Coffeehouse in August last year. Her decision to pursue her passion amid the pandemic was heavily influenced by Dr. Robert H. Schuller’s New York Times best-selling book, “Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do.”
