A little strange, but not bad

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... read more

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!

We wanted our morning coffee and had walked past here the night before and made a note to go in the am. We walked there around 8 am. Sign said closed not open until 9 am.

The coffee is strong and tasty, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is perfect for sitting around and chatting.

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

My husband and myself went to Jim Thorpe for a weekend getaway. Both days during our shopping, we came in for some warm up as it was a pretty brisk February weather. The place is by far the coolest cofffee shop I have ever been in. The walls are painted like outer space, there is a giant stuffed squid dangling... More

Good sized quirky place on the Main St. Good coffee & drawings of many top music artists on the wall. They have a sofa, comfy chairs as well as some table & a counter with stools.

The coffee and drinks here are good. The environment is good. The owner can be a little off and his sense of humor may escape those from out of town. I like to think of him in reference to the comic book store guy on the simpsons. I'm sure as he reads this he is saying " worst review ever".

I liked the idea of the cafe, but it's just not quite there. Neat environment, average coffee, unfriendly service.
