Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

Caffe Pergolesi is named after a famous 16th century Italian composer, named Bustimonte Pergolesi.  Bustimonte Pergolesi was born in Italy, 1710, and died in 1736.

Dr. Miller

As most of you have noticed, the large black lettering on the outside of the Victorian house the Caffe Pergolesi occupies, has the name "Dr. Miller".  Dr. Miller was a successful dentist around the turn of the century. He decided to build and live in an establishment that would serve as his business and home. In doing this he built this beautiful Victorian home where the first floor served as his dentistry practice and the second floor served as a home for his family. Dr. Miller had a successful dental practice and home for his family and clients for many years.
