Visions of Canyon County 

A warm buzz of espresso grinders, quiet chatter and natural light flood the Flying M Coffeegarage. Lisa and Kevin Myers opened the Flying M Coffeehouse in Boise in 1992, but they knew they wanted to open a location in Nampa as well. When the City of Nampa began to talk about revitalization, the Myers’ plans clicked into place and the Coffeegarage opened in 2006. Many downtown Nampa business owners say the coffeegarage was the catalyst for the change which has brought in several new businesses. A decade ago, businesses like The White Pine and hip eateries like Messenger Pizza and Simple Sushi would have only been found in Boise.  “When I was a kid, the [Nampa] downtown was a vibrant place,” Lisa said.
