Went to JC Beans for a latte with a friend. We got ours take away as we were headed somewhere. We both ordered lattes and each enjoyed them. The interior of the shop has a neat vibe, but is a bit crowded. It's quite popular...More

This is a small, cozy, and friendly alternative to their corporate neighborhood up the street. Their coffee is head and shoulders better and sipping that latte next to a warm fire seals the deal.

This is a super cute coffee shop. It has lots of book and you can even buy them for just $2. The coffee and pastries were great. Parking was the major downside. We had to park across the street.

Not sure how they compete with Starbuck's which is literally next door, but the drive-thru certainly helps. Plus they've got a wide selection of drinks and food!
