Have you considered using gift cards to offer to your current customer base and new customers? There are a variety of companies around that specialize in gift cards, but they can typically be customized with your store information.
You might think about giving away a $5 gift card to individuals in adjacent local businesses and see the type of response you receive. Once they use the gift card, you can offer a re-load feature with a 10% discount.
I have an article I would be happy to share with you that talks about promotions specific to gift cards as well as information on the companies that specialize in gift cards for coffee shops.
