“What happened?”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This place used to be awesome about two years ago. The past two years this place has taken a dive. Where do I even begin? Well firstly last year I was walking by the shop after it had been "closed" and there was a young girl and her long haired boyfriend enjoying a romp on the couch! The craziest part is the girl still works there and has a really poor attitude. The newer dreaded staff also seem cold and distant. I don't feel the same going in there anymore I don't feel welcomed I feel like a hassle more than anything. It's really a shame because I loved this place but the owner just seems to let everyone, mostly his staff, walk all over him and run his business. Oh and since when has it become a day care service? Not that I mind the little ones but where are the parents when they're running around? I hope things change one day.

“Not bad”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 via mobile

Our coffee was tasty and the danish was good... no complaints. 60's psychedelia backdrop and good coffee is good enough for me.

“Best coffee in Jim Thorpe!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Don't miss this eclectic, music-inspired coffee shop that has the coolest vibe with an incredible full length wall mural of musical legends. The coffee is perfectly brewed and prepared to your liking. Strange Brew also offers lattes, espresso, and blended juice drinks. I also tried his home made chai tea and it was exceptional!

“Strange brew...strange crew”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 via mobile

Look out for white dudes with dreads and an assortment of colorful, friendly local slackers of all ages. Don't go there to eat...it is a place to have a cup o Jo and watch the world go by. A cozy, eclectic local hangout you can't miss...conveniently around the corner from a "tobacco" shop!
