I ordered the drip (French Roast) coffee, but was very disappointed as the coffee was watered-down. Cute place, but don't come here for the coffee.

Our party of 14 descended on one poor barista, so we had time to take in the vibe, especially the black and white mural of music legends from Elvis, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin to MIchael Jackson, Prince, U2 and more recent stars I don't know! There was also an interesting selection of magazines. Coffee... More

Nice place with good coffee. Really enjoyed the view onto the street with window side seating. We ended up buying a bag of coffee to take home.

I really like a great coffee shop especially one that provides exceptional coffee. I also occasionally like a nice flavored latte as well. This coffee shop has a lot of great things to offer. I'm thrilled that my dog is welcome here and I like the cute cafe setting and the neat theme of the shop. I do have to... More

Didn't try the food we were only thirsty and the tea was very good. Very clean and very polite staff.

It is a cool vibe, fits into the old hippie feel of the town. While there we were informed about Bear Creek Lake and other recreational options if we come back for a longer time. Look forward to stopping there again the next time.

Neat little place tucked in Jim Thorpe, very cool atmosphere and delicious coffee! If I lived in the area I would definitely make this regular part of my daily routine!

As a Dunkin Donuts lover, I walked into this place not knowing what to get. The barista was so helpful to my hubby and I. I told her what I liked and she explained what we should get. We took her advise and was extremely happy with our delicious drinks. We sat in a lovely lounge are and chilled for... More

We were walking through downtown Jim Thorpe on a cold, blustery day when we decided to stop here for something warm to drink. Strange Brew has a great selection of coffee drinks and teas to chose from. After getting a tea I had never tried before (Cherry Almond black tea,) we went into the seating area that was like sitting... More

Absolutely Love this place! The coffee is amazing, as is the environment! Found this coffee sip of heaven on our Honeymoon, and it's a must stop every time we go to Jim Thorpe!
