Welcome to Bright Eyes! Our goal every day is to not just serve delicious goodness, but to serve sunshine in a cup to every customer we meet! We are here daily to provide the very best in locally sourced, organic coffee, delicious pastry and food options all made in house or at other local bakeries around town, and to round out your days we’ve recently added locally crafted beer, wine, and cider.
Our journey began back in November of 2018 when Jessica Maschmann (an employee at the time) took a big leap and became Owner of the Meridian Coffee Studio. It was a long process that developed very naturally between Jessica and the previous owner. This little gem of a coffee shop that was nestled in the middle of multiple neighborhoods in Meridian had become a well-known gathering place for anything from meeting a friend for a cup of coffee, to business meetings, to bible study groups in the mornings, and tutoring and study sessions in the afternoons. With unwavering support from the local community, Jessica slowly started to make Coffee Studio her own, and in August of 2020 she made the switch to Bright Eyes! The Bright Eyes name comes from Jessica’s daughter, Meredith, and it truly couldn’t fit the shop any better.
The Bright Eyes community is a strong one! We are built of growing families, students, retired friends, Idaho originals and lots of newcomers… but you will never meet a stranger when you walk into Bright Eyes! We love to support our community through our Bunco Fundraisers, our Christmas Toy Drive, our featured “Artist of the Month” (giving local artists an opportunity to display and sell their art), and we look forward to hosting local musicians and fun activities like Paint and Sip nights soon!
