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.

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

Very Cute spot for coffee and light fare. We loved the Wake Me Up- coffee with a shot of espresso. They even offer Truvia.

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

So I spent the day wandering downtown JT & stepped inside Strange Brew for a drink. There were 2 people at the register placing an order. Three feet next to the register is a small bar with 3 stools, so I sit at one. After the two were served the owner said to me, "Don't sit there, you have to... More
