Excellent

Was walking the town after Jonas hit the area and needed something hot to drink. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Prices were excellent and everything was spot on. I definitely recommend the "dirty" chai.

Cute café in Jim Thorpe. Barista was really friendly and Mom said it was the best hot cocoa she has ever had. Vanilla latte was very good as well. Glad we tried it out!

Slowest service and mediocre coiffee. Go to one of the little diners or an ice cream joint in town. Thye must seve coffee. Not enough competition, so Strange Brew can be mediocre, I guess.

Latte was barely warm because barrister was lazy or busy to worm up the milk, she refuse to give us “low on sugar” because “everything is premixed already”.

Comfy couches if you luck out plus tables indoors and out. Good, solid coffee drink menu plus some goodies to go with.

I went with my family as they wanted coffee. When the "barista" asked what I wanted I told him I don't drink coffee. He told me to get out of the store as I was taking up space. When my sister-in-law went to pay the bill, he yelled at her the too many people had "friggin twenties" There is something... More

A very cool and eclectic coffee shop. The iced coffee was very good but not as good as the cookies and muffins! The only negative was the guy serving the coffee.

After doing all the outdoor activities, time to sit down, have coffee and have conversations. This is not starb*cks. They have an extensive selection on the board and it took me a while to decide what to get. My friend tried the "candy" selections and they even have frozen selections that my kids had fun choosing from. They ordered frozen... More
