A great place to get brewed coffee and/or beans ground to your needs. A wide variety of coffees, free Wi-Fi and an outdoor seating area for you and your dog add to the experience. It will ruin you forever on chain coffee places.

My wife and I come here every Saturday if we can, after visiting the farmers' market. Java Shack embodies the term "local business," and most of its customers seem to come from the neighborhood nearby. The owner even hangs out most of the time when...More
