Coffee tour stop #1: Bob’s Java Hut

24 Jul

So a few weeks ago, I asked friends for their recommendations of local non-chain coffee shops. This weekend, my friend SP and I started a coffee tour based on those recommendations. Stop #1: Bob’s Java Hut.

We wanted a place that had food too, because we were both starving. So we went to Bob’s and split the chips & salsa and the hummus & pita. Plus, iced cold press for each of us. (OK nerd alert: We used to pick the place.)

Food! And coffee!

Huge portions! That was more than enough food to feed both of us for dinner. And the coffee was excellent. (Ignore how much cream I have in mine – I got distracted while pouring. Oops.) All that food and coffee for $15!

The coffee shop was really cool. Very old biker bar sort of feel. It’s actually got an interesting background: bikers wanting a coffee shop.

There were pictures of motorcycles on the wall, too. I still don’t know the significance of the number 33 there, but we had fun trying to figure it out. They had the whole front wall open as a window because it was the first below-ninety degree we had had in a few weeks. Which was nice for the fresh air, but there was only one ceiling fan and nothing to create a cross-breeze, so it felt warm. Well, warm to me – I don’t do heat well. They also have a big-screen TV (although nothing was on at the time we went), and they compost! Which is awesome. And so easy to do.

All in all, I think it was a great start to our coffee tour. Of course, SP and I can make any coffee shop a great stop just because we can chat for hours. But this one was cool: local, great food, good coffee, interesting/unique/fun atmosphere, very chill and relaxing. Can’t wait for stop #2!
