Interesting Coffee Shop

Coffee Ok. The guy that serves it is rude and degrading. I ordered a large black, his reply" Large What? We've got other drinks too, you know"Left there with a bad vibe. Bad experience in a super Village.

I grabbed iced coffee here around 9:30 in the morning, planning to enjoy it while strolling the quiet streets of Jim Thorpe. The price for a large ($2.50) was reasonable, and the ice cubes made from coffee were a great touch. The interior decoration of Strange Brew is strange, rather than interesting, and there were very few pastries on offer.... More

This place has great iced coffee. They even used coffee ice cubes. My wife and I went every morning of our stay in Jim Thorpe.

Great Iced Coffee. Owner is friendly and extremely accommodating. I drink a lot of iced coffee and never have I had one where the ice cubes were made with coffee. Great since it doesn't water down the drink. Brilliant!

Ours was a preseason weekday visit to Jim Thorpe and not much was open, so we selected Strange Brew for coffee by process of elimination. The décor is a bit weird, but not too far out. My wife and I both got lattes. The counter girl talked my wife into using almond milk in her latte, and she was happy... More

The weather was extremely cold and I stopped in for a hot cup of anything decaf but was mockingly told "this is a coffee house why would we sell decaf?"

Walked in out of the cold for hot refreshments. We ordered two decaf coffees, which seemed to be a problem, we were told who orders decaf. Then my husband wanted a hot chocolate and he was asked "big guy like you want hot chocolate". Needless to say we didn't go back
