Weve never been treated so poorly at an establishment in Jim Thorpe until we set foot in here. The owner is so rude. He accused us of trying not to pay for our items. We placed our order for our group and were delivering the food/drinks to the table. He announced to the place we'd better pay. He didn't even... More

Strange Brew is hip, quaint, and also has a historic feeling to it all at the same time. I got one of the many quiche selections and a coffee and it was delicious!!!! Chill vibe

Nice coffee shop, good to take a warm break, sit and enjoy an espresso or americano. Interesting mural on the wall to discuss over sipping. Don't have food, maybe some cakes but don't get anything.

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

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.
