LOVE!!!! What the new owners have done with the food, atmosphere and staffing. You always feel included in whatever they have going on. Imagine my surprise, when the owner herself was passing out freshly baked and decorated cake to celebrate a customer who would be moving and they wanted to give him a nice send off. These people care about people! Anyway, My friend and I are now considered regulars at House of Joe!
I've been a patron at this coffee shop for over 5 years. It's the best bean in town and the friendliest baristas I interact with. I travel constantly around the country and this shop has not only the right mix of coffee, food, and atmosphere, but the owner and staff are interactive and pay attention to the customers on a one on one basis.
One thing that I think most people realize once they come to the shop is the positive attitude of not only the staff but the patrons.
I extremely disagree with the previous comment. I have been coming to House of Joe for three years and think that there have been many improvements made in the last year. Their coffee is by far the best in town and the staff is always friendly when I'm there. My drink has never been made wrong and I find the place to be clean. I would definitely recommend House of Joe over the other coffee shops in the area.
Just like the Northern coffeehouses I love and miss! Comfy ambiance with good service. The coffee has always been excellent and is priced like any other coffee shop, though the quality here is better than most. Think Starbucks but with less chain-y sameness and more personal flair.
The place has decor that is warm and inviting with a variety of comfortable seatings areas and types. Usually scupulously clean every where. Use of a computer is a nice feature on occasion. The food is poor quality, badly cooked, ingraciously served and as much as the coffee is usually just drinkable all the stuff is over priced. The outside seating is nice and kept clean as possible
I belong to a rather large group who frequents this place every tuesday night. The wait staff is always young girls who are usually busy flirting, smoking, or talking on thier cell phones, and not usually the fastest things on the planet when it comes to waiting on customers. The prices are more than a little steep as well, but over ass the atmosphere is is charming, warm color schemes and low lights lend a friendly quality to this establishment.
