You’ve had coffee, but have you experienced coffee served with style? Caddy Shack Coffee Stop is in a beautifully restored retro camper, pulled by a matching ’57 Cadillac! Their uniqueness attracts curious customers who have a love of the vintage set up and of course, the coffee.
Owner, Matt Maloney enjoys serving the community while bringing a new fun flair to the Amarillo area. Caddy shack serves everything from hot lattes with homemade whipped cream to iced coffee, as well as hot and iced drinks in season flavors like apple pie and caramel apple.
Caddy Shack got their beginnings at the Cadillac Ranch, fitting for the business' heritage. They're still parked there on the weekends where they've met customers from across the globe, but they now spend weekdays traveling across the Amarillo area meeting locals who appreciate the history of the Cadillac and retro camper as much as world travelers!
When they're not serving travelers and locals like, Matt and his crew are catering weddings and other local events!
