The Great Coffee Adventure: Just a wedding photographer + her coffee-enthusiast husband on an adventure through Pennsylvania; discovering, photographing and otherwise enjoying the unique, independently-owned coffeeshops and cafes of our great state. Coffee makes us happy.
In the business district of Williamsport, PA, there is a coffee shop always bustling with hungry customers.
Large windows and wide-open spaces fill this coffee shop with sunny light and good cheer.
Meet the folks for breakfast? Get some coffee and a baked good? That’s what we did. While on a road trip with my parents, we stopped by Julie’s Coffee on a cool and breezy Saturday morning. We were impressed by the amount of happy people enjoying some steaming-hot breakfast food.
There were plenty of places to sit. Plenty of room for standing and staring at the menu for awhile before ordering…
We met Jim (the owner) and he was super-enthusiastic and very involved in the business. He has owned Julie’s Coffee for about eight years, and is now retired from another occupation and spending alot of time in the coffeeshop. He seems to truly enjoy chatting with customers, delivering food and enthusiastically sharing about this place. He revealed that their focus is mainly a breakfast/lunch spot with premiere coffee available. Julie’s Coffee prides themselves on being able to get the lunchtime patron in and out in under 30 minutes. And any cubicle-dwelling office worker can certainly appreciate that!
Now let’s talk coffee!
Espresso. Julie’s serves Panache coffees, a roaster out of Portland, Oregon. The espresso was very bold with a spicy flavor. Jim told me a story about a German family (from Germany) that visited the café and ordered the espresso. Any European in your coffee shop is enough to make you nervous—they don’t play with coffee over there. The group noted that the espresso was the best that they had ever had in America—and I think Julie’s made a great choice to serve Panache.
