Good coffee, not packed, no snobs, plenty of tables and delicious snacks. An above average selection on coffees and teas at a fair price. This is a nice place to relax for the morning

Best in Lubbock and the region. Others may argue in favor of other local roasters, but this shop, in the center of the college/prof/doctor tree-lined walking neighborhood of Tech Terrace, is far and away the best in town. Highly knowledgeable baristas--most of whom are great conversationalists, meeting rooms, good light breakfast and lunch sandwiches, meeting space upstairs. Free wifi, highly engaged with community and arts scenes. Back room hosts occasional music shows and is the best small live-music acoustic in town, bar none. I don't get to go here as often as I did (have always lived w/in walking distance), but I wrote two books here and both dedications mention the shop. An absolute cornerstone of what makes Lubbock livable. Indispensable

I just like the atmosphere! Students mix with the neighborhood and others who are retired. The simple menu is very good. My favorite is the chicken salad with chips and salsa. Sit outside on a sunny day. Great, efficient staff. Laid back place to meet friends for great coffee or one of many other drinks.

J& B has a long history in Lubbock and it's location in an old Movie theater is beautiful rich wood, and a great small venue for occasional music acts and local art. The coffee is very strong, and many varieties, but my favorite is the Cowboy Coffee, a hearty, smooth, caramel strong brew that will knock your socks off caffeine wise. Great service with a Texas smile, don't miss it.

Always outstanding different types of coffee in different strengths and decaf! The types change daily. Limited food menu but always freshly made. The chicken salad is especially good! Casual, comfortable atmosphere. Outside tables usually available. Outlets to charge your technology. Busy but friendly atmosphere! Locals and college students.
