Java Joe's in Clarkesville
Clarkesville has done a great job with the renovation of their downtown square. Wide paver sidewalks, crosswalks and aprons really enhance the older architecture and some of the building themselves have had a facelift.
Tucked in on one corner of the square is Java Joe's Coffee Shoppe and cafe. We stopped in on a very cold weekday afternoon not long ago for something warm to drink before we made our way around the square to do some shopping.
This is a neat spot to grab some good coffee and a pastry or light lunch, and there were a few patrons relaxing and reading. I'm no coffee expert-and I add some (ok, a lot of) cream and sugar, but even I could tell this was a cut above what I am accustomed to. Better than Starbucks and even a little cheaper. Many varieties of coffee and coffee drinks are available.
The deserts were enticing, but it was too soon after lunch for a slice of the 5 layer Red Velvet cake displayed proudly on the counter.
