I had the unique chance of stopping by for a cup of Jim (it’s no longer Joe, I called it), and got to meet some pretty great people. I always think that coffee should never be enjoyed alone, so I was a little apprehensive about going by myself. I was in great company though: Jimmy’s head barista, Ashleigh “Max” Waters, formerly of Hanks, not only makes a mean latte, but she’s got charm.
It is refreshing to have a barista who has so much passion for their work that you can taste their expertise in your drink. I tried the latté, kept it simple, no syrups or toppings.
Jimmy’s is not your typical coffee shop. Actor turned contractor, Phil Morrison is the brainchild behind this charming little coffee shop. The goal was to create a cozy spot for the espresso loving crowd. Mission accomplished—Jimmy’s keeps it simple by offering great coffee made from high quality ingredients. No fuss here, just great coffee. I really take to this concept– they do one thing, and they do it well.
So what separates them from other coffee shops? superb coffee, unpretentious, educated baristas, FREE wireless, cozy and homely feel, delicious treats from circles and squares bakery… I don’t think you need more reasons than this.
I’m giving away a certificate for a free hot beverage to the first 5 people who e-mail me… just that simple.
