If you're looking for a great cup of Joe in downtown Decorah, Java John's is a not-so-well-kept secret. Located right on Water Street, it boasts an extensive menu for coffee lovers, and for those who enjoy other options for their go-to-refreshment. For non-coffee drinkers like myself, the number of choices available is sure not to disappoint. While I am partial to their rich hot chocolate, and my non-coffee imbibing friend enjoys a great smoothie, they also offer a wide array of teas, both hot and iced, as well as that summer favorite, Italian sodas. Add your flavor shot of choice for a cup of fizzy refreshment that will truly delight.
As far as coffee, you will just have to stop on down to experience the plethora of options. When you step in the door, that pleasant aroma of a freshly perked cup overwhelms the senses and makes you want to stay a while. Perhaps you’ll be in the mood for a sip of their signature Decorah Dark, a French Roast with organically sourced South and Central American beans. Or maybe the Nicely Nordic with Honduran-sourced beans is more your style. While you are there, pick up a bag or two of their organic coffee to brew at home to get your morning started off right or to enjoy with the evening meal at the end of a hectic day.
Beverages aren’t the only options, of course. When those pangs of hunger come calling, you can pair your coffee or tea with a slice of their carrot cake, a brownie, bagel, or even a cup of creamy chicken and rice soup for lunch. Or order a bowl of their baked oatmeal for a truly satisfying breakfast.
When you’re looking for some great entertainment, look no further than Java John’s. Their Calendar of Events boasts some great musical acts that will make that hot apple cider taste even better as you take in some relaxing tunes. You might even want to showcase your own talent at an Open Mic Night.
So, whether you’re looking to study while connected to the complimentary Wi-Fi, have a great conversation with a good friend, or find a little soulful sound to which to unwind, Java John’s is the place to go. Be sure to drop by soon and enjoy the offerings of this vibrant local business.
