Joyhouse Coffee

Coffee shops run by or existing within churches come in all manner of quality. Some do a decent job with limited resources/investment, and some I wish were more open to feedback/betterment. But occasionally, a community is fortunate enough to have a coffee entity that seems to take things seriously, and in those instances, such a rarity shines like a beacon.

On What Grounds?

For me, driving the Delmarva Peninsula for coffee purposes can be a bit of gamble depending on the time of year and the road I take. Often times I have plenty of time to seek one out but it's late Friday evening or Sunday afternoon, while other times I will be near the shore and a seasonal shop will be shuttered.

Brevede Coffee Co

While I cherish the coziness of a coffee shop with a small footprint, I do love stumbling upon a super-spacious cafe every now and then, especially when it's beautifully arrayed. Such fortunes I had when I first drove into Lexington, Kentucky and found a local operation called Brevede.
