ree 411 services sure sound convenient, but aside from the million sales pitches you have to endure to get the information, sometimes the information isn't exactly categorized correctly.

Recently, going through Watertown, I was in dire need of a cup of coffee so I called one of the Free 411 numbers and searched coffeehouses. I was presented with two establishments: Different Drummer and Brew Ha Ha. Different Drummer sounded intriguing (plus only they answered their phone) but it turned out to be a hangout for those in the service that doesn't actually serve beverages (guess it's more a B.Y.O everything). Dejected and with no one picking up at Brew Ha Ha, I decided to just head back on my route.

But what do you know, on my way back to the Interstate I actually run right across Brew Ha Ha. It turned out to be a drive-thru coffee hut resembling a little fairy tale cottage on the corner of a bustling intersection. Naturally, I pulled into the driveway and up to the window.

The coffee served is out of Corning from a place called Soul Full Cup Coffeehouse. The coffee served was the House blend, a very earthy and smooth cup of coffee that really hit the spot at the time. Though I wasn't sure what to expect from the espresso as I've not had the best of luck with drive-thru coffee and espresso, it actually turned out to be fairly decent though a bit overpulled. I did not catch the tea.

While I think Brew Ha Ha could make a few improvements, it was a welcome stop that day. I'd have to say for a drive-thru cafe, it proved decent. So if you happen to be in Watertown and not looking to leave your vehicle to grab your java, give Brew Ha Ha a whirl.

Why hello there! It is nice to see that Brew Ha Ha in Watertown, NY has gotten some attention.
I lived in Northern New York (Watertown) a few years back and I personally feel that the best thing that ever happened to Watertown was Brew Ha Ha. Yes, this postage stamp sized billet is home of the best "joe." Like the owners so cleverly phrased it, they "put the coffee in Coffeen Street." And, as the saying goes, often times "great things come in small packages."

I just went to the Brew Ha Ha to get a cappuccino and asked for an extra shot of espresso. I was then told that it already comes with espresso...well duh, obviously, but I wanted an extra shot. When I pulled up to the window they gave me an explanation of what a cappuccino was, like I had no idea what I was doing, and told me that it was different than what you get at a gas station convinence store! They said it wasn't going to be very sweet and that I should switch to a mocha, which would be more like that powdered crap that comes out of a machine, and in their words it would be "closer to what I was used to" I wanted a cappuccino so I ordered one, and shortly after they brought it to the window and said "Sorry it takes a little longer to make than a regular drink" It took exactly how long it would normally take to make a cappuccino, what is a regular drink that comes out instantly, that crap from gas stations?
And after all this, I am told that it is not going to be very sweet and I am going to get a thick cappuccino, I end up with a Starbucks quaility thin and overly sweet drink.

I definately would never go there again.

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd
post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
