Our Story

What started in October of 2004 as an idea for a simple juice bar developed into a sandwich shop offering juices, smoothies, creamsicle sodas and shakes with customized vitamin supplements. Squeeze Marfa has always carried Vollenweider chocolate from Switzerland. Vollenweider chocolate was started in 1943 by the father of Squeeze Marfa’s owner, Verena Zbinden. Her brother and his wife continue to run the family business in Winterthur and Zürich, Switzerland sending handmade chocolate to Marfa directly from the source. Squeeze Marfa is the sole US distributor of Vollenweider chocolate.

As Squeeze Marfa grew so did the menu, expanding to include a daily vegetarian soup, bratwurst, hummus with pita bread, garden salads and breakfast options including Birchermüesli – a hearty Swiss recipe of oats, fruit and yogurt, a vegan granola dish with açai, waffles and freshly baked croissants. In 2009 Squeeze Marfa added a new, state of the art, Espresso machine and began serving Espresso, Cappuccino and Café Latté.

Squeeze Marfa is proud to present Third Coast Coffee as our new House Blend coffee. Third Coast Coffee is an Austin, Texas based brand known for their Fair Trade and Organic blend coffees. Besides producing high quality, gourmet coffees, Third Coast Coffee also maintains a website with information about each coffee batch from farmer to roaster. The company is committed to developing ‘long-term, open and lasting relationships’ within the supply chain and is proud to be on the Fair Trade Register and certified Organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

With a focus on fresh, healthy offerings, it’s an eclectic menu sure to cater to almost any palate.
