CJ’S COFFEE CAFE
We believe there is no substitute for “real food” and with that philosophy we work hard at providing clean, fresh ingredients in all the foods we serve. We are at the shop before the sun rises baking—from scratch—all our wonderful morning pastries, homemade breads, rolls and gourmet, homemade soups.
We are very “Geeky” about our coffee, so much so that we roast our own beans. All the coffee we serve is within days of roast! We have frappes, iced or hot coffee drinks. We even have Nitro Coffee served on tap. Come in and say Hi! Hope to see ya soon!
When we purchased the pre-existing coffee shop in 2010, we knew that the fault of Mom & Pops was their inability to be consistent; at least at the chains you know what you are getting. So, besides our heart for creating a neighborhood gathering place for people to slow down and connect, we also wanted to consistently provide great food and coffee EVERY time.
CJ’s sits in a historic district, in the old Greyhound Bus Station, in an up and coming downtown.
It was very small when we purchased it, only seating 18. We added onto the shop in 2012 and now are able to seat 40 inside comfortably plus another 40 on our beautiful outdoor patio. Local art hangs on the walls and there’s a computer bar facing out to the street with plenty of outlets and of course free WiFi.
With our goal to serve the best coffee around it was only a matter of time before we learned and began roasting our own coffee beans. Today we have full control of all our coffees and our own unique recipe for an espresso blend that we believe is amazing. Come try it! Our fully-trained staff of baristas can truly be called by that name. Our goal is for you to have a great experience each and every time you visit.
CJ’s has grown to open a second location in Sherman, Texas. CJ’s on Travis opened its doors in May 2018.
