Saint John is proud of our local coffee roaster, Java Moose…and uptown is lucky to have two locations with friendly, fun, and personable staff. ?Stepping into Java Moose on Prince William Street is like stepping into the 'Cheers' of coffee shops; they know your name, they know your preferences and they're faithfully there ready to serve your pleasure. ?
On most days, the staff behind the counter will include the lovely Leah (though her barista belly is expanding as she counts down the days until maternity leave). ?It is easy to see that the crew share a unique camaraderie and really enjoy each other, as well as the patrons. ?Leah is a quick witted and always charming, adding an extra level of comfort to this location. ?Leah and her fellow staff are excellent at engaging the public, whether it be in person or through social media channels. ?There is just something special about an independent coffee shop. ?Good coffee, comfy seats, great conversation…find it at Java Moose, Prince William Street. ?
