There's a new coffee shop in town and we couldn't be more excited to welcome Grant Serrels (manager/head barista) to the corner of E. Market and Main St right on Court Square. Although compact in size, Just Love Coffee & Tea offers a wide variety of choices including lattes, macchiatos, hot chocolate, and London fogs. They keep it local and use Chestnut Ridge Coffee Roasters as their source for coffee beans, another new face to the coffee scene in the Burg...oh! and don't forget their selection of hot teas.
