Caveat: I did not try the coffee and I usually drink regular coffee or a latte. On this occasion, I was fully caffeinated and wanted a chai latte. This was unlike any chai latte I've ever had across a variety of coffee shops. It was like melted white chocolate met some chai spice. It was excessively, undrinkably sweet. Friends got... More

Always stop here for coffee. Wonderfully eclectic....love it! Nice selection of coffees and pastries. A little walk up Broadway, but worth it!

The shop is cute, but the specialty coffee drinks are overly sweet. The chai latte tastes like a melted white chocolate bar. I can't comment on regular coffee.

I grew up in the 60's & 70's and I remember the physcodelic era very well. So when I walked into Strang Brew, I understood what a "bad trip" or a "Flash Back" was all about. The place was a mixture of bad art and bizzarr lights. Oh well. The coffee is an imitation of Starbucks. Over roasted well past... More

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.
