Coffee Therapy #5: Java U

Posted by Christy / September 19, 2006

Java%20U.jpgI don't know, unlikely readers. What is it we all really want, here? Is it just a cup of coffee worth leaving the house? Is it a coffee shop that makes you feel like you're in your own living room, only cleaner and with more attractive strangers? Or are we really just searching for one simple thing to fill the ragged hole that LIFE HAS CHEWED FROM OUR HEARTS?

Java U could provide that for you. Hell, they'll do their best, and aren't we all, in the end, doing our best? Goddamnit, I say YES.

I didn't weep over Java U's coffee, reborn. But I did find my own face there, reflected in the bottom of their deep black mugs. And if the sight of your own likeness distorted in the glaze of a dark hole doesn't inspire an existential hoedown, you're not an out-of-work poet nor a grad student, and you don't really need a coffee shop.

The coffee's fine--kinda sweet, finishes clean, decent temperature. You'll like it. The wall art, at the moment, is terrible. Truly terrible graphite nudes are framed with helpless abandon throughout their St-Denis location. I loved it. The chairs are comfortable and everyone seems friendly and willing to usher you into the depths of your own soul. I don't know what more you can ask for, really, other than fulfillment and unending peace. Maybe opium?

Check back in next week when we tackle The Most Intimidating (and Possibly Best?) Coffee Shop in Montreal. Can you guess what it is? It scares the pants off me.
