We stopped by the W. 10th Street location of Jack’s Stir Brew, the first location of this popular local chain, for a post-lunch coffee and were happy to find it a pretty relaxed place. How relaxed? We were surprised at the meter reading, because it was a few decibels higher than anticipated.  We assume the meter picked up the conversation at the next table, but must note that the couple wasn’t loud–no one was.

Music played quietly in the background and traffic noise did not intrude, even as the owner or manager propped open the door to make a repair.  We’ve walked past this location of Jack’s many times and it’s usually crowded, so we were happy we found a table.  Even when crowded, though, it’s unlikely to be uncomfortable as there are only four tables and several stools.  Add in very good coffee and a nice selection of sweet treats, and we recommend a visit.


Monday through Friday: 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
