We always stop in for iced or hot lattes when we are either visiting,shopping,going to lunch or dinner,hiking or biking in Jim Thorpe. This place is pretty awesome! Definately what a coffee shop would have been like in the Haight-Ashbury district of the late 60's early 70's. Super cool,creative art on the walls and for sale in the back room... More

Reminds me of the coffee houses I used to frequent in high school with the kitschy deco and that head shop feel. The place is decorated with murals and memorabilia in a music theme. The prices are great, for good coffee and awesome chai tea. I highly recommend their coffee milkshakes, and chai tea milkshakes-better than the shakes from the... More

This 60's themed coffee shop was a favourite morning destination for us. Great selection of coffees and teas with friendly local service. Great place to strike up a conversation with other travellers and local residents. The rock and roll mural is very cool and brings back lots of memories.

For me it was all about the Iced Dirty Chai! The perfect blend of tasty, cold, refreshing drink with a boost of energy. Its a combo of a chai latte with a shot of espresso. Just perfect!

Liked all the murals of rock stars and the hippie motif. The staff is nice and the coffee is comparable to starbucks.

I would love to review this place because we are early risers and enjoy having a latte while a town comes to life or we are getting on the road. However when I checked the hours, the sign said they would be open at 9 a.m.. After waiting until 9:10 we opted to get on the road to our next... More

Great ambiance. The coffee could have been better. A little weak for our taste. The wall mural is amazing.
