“Consider this an inland life station”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Forget the chain coffee shops - this is the real deal with variety and panache - even for tea drinkers like me! Who also life an occasional decaf mocha or cappuchino

“Loud music.....”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Strikes me that if the music somewhere is so loud that the person taking your order can't hear you then it's too loud......
That aside the coffee and hot chocolate was ok - although both quite sweet (something of a theme in the US). No tables available inside (most occupied by one person and a laptop) but it wasn't raining so we sat outside and watched the world go by.

“Joe Coffee & Espresso Bar - Personal Experience”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This place has been around more than a decade. It moved to current location from a much smaller shop further west on Commercial Street. The cappuccino is almost always consistently good as are most of the pastries, croissants, etc. Certainly several cuts above Starbuck's!

“Excellent Coffee”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

I loved the coffee here. I would get up every morning and walk the .7 miles one way just to get a large cup of Bold drip coffee, black! There is an outdoor patio area on the front with a view of the waterfront across the street. This is a pet friendly place as they keep 2 large water bowls near the entrance for the family pet!
