There’s a “new kid” on the block………

To explain the above……..some of you know that I/we live in quintessential “rural America”! Specifically, 5 miles outside a town, pop. 900 (maybe!), and 12 miles from another, slightly larger, town named Rushford (MN). Finding a reeeeeeelly good cuppa is a challenge……..or should I say ‘was’ a challenge until yesterday, that is, when this place opened! Yup, the “new kid” is a new coffee/sandwich place, located in above named town, and that’s where DH and I spent some time this morning. The name (which is defined by the street on which it’s located) is “Jessie Street Java”. Awesome!!!! Jessie Street Java 011

Jessie Street Java 010

Come along as I introduce you to my friends (and owners), Amy and Kevin………..please, say “Hello” and kindly place your order…….take a moment, though, cuz the menu board gives so many choices!!!!!! Jessie Street Java 009

Are you ready to find a comfy seat???? Again…..choices…Jessie Street Java 003

DH has already settled in and has categorically stated that the coffee is among the best he’s had!!!!!! (Sorry about the ‘face obscured by cup’ pose! Kinda reminds me of the old TV sitcom “Tool Time” and the neighbor {“Wilson”} who’s face was always hidden partially but was available to dispense a timely piece of verbal wisdom.) Pardon the small aside!  To continue…………Jessie Street Java 001 

Maybe a bit of puzzle work with your coffee?????? Jessie Street Java 004

Isn’t that just the coziest corner ever???!!!!!

Jessie Street Java 008

Jessie Street Java 006

Well, I guess it’s time to move on through the day, but we’ll be back!!!!

Congrats and blessings in this new adventure, Amy & Kevin!!!!!                                             Note: Fb link added.

    How lovely to have such a spot in your town now-just adds a bit more joy to life!

    • treadlemusic says:

      It does! Not having to drive 35 miles for the “coffee house” atmosphere and coffee/food is huge (especially if needing a meeting spot with friends). So glad you stopped by!!!!! Hugs………………..

    Very nice Amy and Kevin as well as congrats and welcome. Thanks for sharing Doreen. Blessings, Mtetar

  3. I love the visit-thanks so much

    What fun to have a ‘local’ coffee house! It looks like a really neat place to kick back and enjoy!

    I bet it is nice to have a nice coffee place to drop by. I occasionally stop by a place that is 12 miles from me – but that is a ways to go for coffee! Usually it is when I meet a quilting friend and we look at the magazines too ( book store/coffee shop) can’t say as the coffee is anything great but it is a nice place to meet.

    • treadlemusic says:

      Given that there’s nothing between our place and there, except farm fields, it feels like right around the corner! LOL! The coffee is amazing (will be trying other drinks such as blended iced chai tea…..when it’s a LOT warmer outside!!!!!), the scones are awesome and the sandwiches & soups are 5 star, also. Yup, I’m glad they’re there!!!!

  6. Jackie says:

    Looks like a future stop for Dad and I when we do our next trip down that way. What a lovely establishment for Rushford.

  7. Thanks for sharing this, Doreen. It looks like a great place with welcoming atmosphere and owners and, I expect, great food and drinks. My kind of place.

    It’s especially heartening to see a business opening in a small town. Blessings to Amy and Kevin in their new endeavor.

  8. Gloria says:

    I think we are planning a ladies lunch to Rushford I will certainly mention this place, thanks for letting the word out

    • treadlemusic says:

      You are very welcome! I don’t know how many of you there will be but you could call to reserve one of the large tables!!! I’m looking forward to trying their sandwiches. Winona Bread/Bagel and Bloedows is where they are getting their baked goods/breads!!!! Yup!!!! Good choices!!!!!!

    This looks great. I love the puzzle on the table. that is a great idea — keeps the puzzle addicts coming back lol, really.

  10. Wilson, is that you?? 🙂 Kevin and Amy look adorable. Best wishes to them in their new venture. I LOVE storefronts. That one is wonderful and bright.

    • treadlemusic says:

      LOL!!!! I didn’t realize until I got home and was editing the photos, that DH was in such a pose!!!! He hasn’t seen it yet!!! That (not so) little place is a “breath of fresh air” in a very rural/agriculture-based town. There are a great many, who call that area home, who work in the larger surrounding towns and find that type of atmosphere quite to their liking (us included!!!!). I wish them well!!!!!

  11. Looks like a fabulous place to hang out for a while! I wish them all the best and I’d visit, but it’s a bit far to go for coffee!!

  12. KrisR says:

    Well, I guess we know where to find you when you’re not behind the sewing machine! (Or on the back of a bike, or shopping, or traveling, or, or, or……lol).

  13. witchylin says:

    It looks the perfect place to met up with friends or just to pop in for a quiet coffee after shopping. My friends meet up in a little coffee house called DL10, the name is the first part of the post/zip code. Our market town of Richmond has many coffee places but this one has a lovely atmosphere and a big table for us to sit around. The coffee is pretty good too. I would love to visit Jessie Street Java next time I am passing. 😉

  14. Michele says:

    Want to meet me there this morning for a cuppa?

  15. I’m a rusty quilter who’s picking up the needle again (geesh that sounds kindof illegal!!)
    I just discovered your blog and am enjoying my re-entry via your posts.
    So happy you have a new quality & funky coffeeshop to hang out in,,,they are few and far between in this area we are currently sojourning in also! (I recently wrote a post reminiscing about my fav coffeeshops in times past.)
    My fav brew is dark roasted Sumatra…mmmmmmmm

    • treadlemusic says:

      Welcome!!!! I’m so glad our paths crossed!!! My fave, in the past, was either Fr. roast or Sumatran but………well, I do like the caffeine and those 2 are really on the low side!!!! The longer a coffee bean is roasted the LESS caffeine remains (heat kills it!!!). Popping over your direction…….and, again, welcome and hugs…………….
      (Love the “needle” sentence!!!! LOL!)

  16. Thread crazy says:

    Your new coffee shop sounds like a “groovy” place to hang out. Since I’m a puzzle nut I’d be at that table working away. So happy you have a neat new coffee shop! Enjoy those scones – oh my favorite!
