Chances are if you’re from South Jersey, you’re familiar with the coffeehouse scene. I have three top picks that I think are great for several different reasons.
Take The Barrington Coffee House. This place has fantastic food, coffee and other great treats. Another great thing about this place is their live music. Every weekend they offer great local talent. There is usually a small cover, but with that comes all-you-can-drink coffee! Just check out their music calendar.
Another great find is The Treehouse Coffee House in Audubon. They have a variety of drinks and food to enjoy, and it’s very reasonably priced. They have events for the entire week listed on their site as well. It’s on a main street, so if exploring is your thing, you should check it out.
If you’re looking for something outside of the South Jersey area, there are plenty of great places in Philadelphia. My pick is The Last Drop right by the Art Institute on Pine Street. Their menu is full of the essential beverages that a true independent coffee house should have to offer.
So there you have it! Next time you’re in one of these areas, make it a point to check out one or all of these great spots and support the local business. Who needs a Starbucks anyway.
