"I was scared. ... I didn't know if anyone was still in the building," she said.
Sheriff's deputies arrived within 10 minutes, she said.
Talus Park, whose wife, Natalie, owns the shop, said some cash and equipment was taken.
Investigators believe the break-in occurred overnight, while the business was closed. Sheriff's office spokesman Derrick Jackson was not immediately reached for comment Tuesday.
At Main Dish Kitchen, 5060 Jackson Road, employees called police Monday after discovering the business, which creates dinners for busy families, had been burglarized. It was not clear whether anything was taken.
No suspects have been identified in either break-in, and the investigation will continue.
The coffee shop is up and running like normal Tuesday after reopening just before lunchtime on Monday.
Valliere is not sure what new precautions they'll take in the future, although she said they've already talked to mangers at the movie theater about keeping an eye out late at night as a first step.
Customers keep coming in as word about the burglary spreads, Valliere said, adding that a woman came in Tuesday afternoon to buy her friend lunch after hearing about the burglary.
"It's a big loss considering how small we are," she said.
Park said one of the regular customers even helped clean up the broken glass from the front door on Monday. The outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelming, he said.
"Unfortunately, there's elements like that in our community, and but no matter what we have to keep going," Park said.
