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.

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 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!

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”.
