Who needs Starbucks? There's no shortage of independently owned coffee shops in Longmont. Those in search of a caffeine fix can choose from the very popular Ziggy's, the excellent Luna Cafe (or up until recently known as Caffe Luna), the relatively new La Vita Bella and several others.

But our preferred coffee shop these days is the cozy Java Stop, located downtown in the historic Imperial Hotel building. The couches are comfy, the coffee is excellent, the pastries are fresh and the vibe is extremely low key and friendly. The prices are extremely reasonable too -- almost too reasonable. 
Owned and operated tirelessly by a husband-wife team, Java Stop has the feel of a community gathering spot, where conversation flows and new friends are made. Extra points go to this spot for being very kid-friendly -- there's a fully stocked closet with toys, games and children's books.


  1. Java Stop has the most friendly, relaxing, ambient atmosphere in Longmont. It's a gathering spot where people know each others' names. The owners know their customers by name. In this coffee shop customers talk to strangers, strike up conversations with folks at another table, network. Local businesses, Arts & Cultural groups find Java Stop to be a perfect place to hold meetings. Quality & organic coffee & food is consistently delicious. Please do yourself a flavor, I mean favor ;) & visit Java Stop @ 301 Main Street.
