Had to meet sister in Athens to check on a relative so we grabbed a coffee from jittery joes. Their coffee and variety of drinks are so much better than the other "coffee" house. Highly recommend it. The wait staff are very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions also.

Coffee of the day other cream was delicious. I mixed half bold half medium. Friendly service. Not much parking after 10:00 AM since the lot is mostly for the bike shop.

Loved the key lime bar that was big enough to share. On a shortbread crust it had a lovely mild key lime flavor that paired perfectly with the buttery shortbread. We sat in the converted old bank building with gorgeous original wood floors and people watched while we enjoyed free wi-fi, ate yummy pastries, and my beloved took in 20... More

Had a wonderful cookie and iced coffee for a afternoon respite from walking around town. The coffee was great so I bought their beans to take home. The staff was funny and polite. I highly recommend.

Outstanding variety of coffee drinks and snacks. Had the Frosted Joe with an espresso shot and a brownie. Was set for the day! Quick and courteous service, great price...but better than Starbucks in pricing. Quiet atmosphere relaxes you as you read, study, or chat. Great place to meet or hang out!

We stopped in for a drink on a cooler, rainy day while visiting Athens. I ordered a hot chocolate, and asked for whipped cream and caramel on the top. I got it! It was delicious. It was delicious to the last drop.

Love Jittery Joes! They have the best coffee, tea, and healthy drinks as well as pastries. They have free wireless and lots of comfy seating such as old sofas and chairs and some locations have a fireplace. This location also has a meeting room which we have used for small groups. It's a great place to study. I like it... More

Loved the atmosphere and the location but was a little disappointed with the value and the coffee - granted it was my first visit and I will definitely try again but I need to find my sweet spot on the menu as I have a unique palate for coffee and need to experiment with the offerings.

@ $2.40 for a large coffee you need more decent tables (most shake). Tip jar should be removed. You must stand in line for service. They do not have Kenya AA, which was an excellent drink, so we abandoned the shop. We did go there for coffee and do not need WiFi, so why pay this amount for a drink... More
