Washington Street Java Company

My favorite coffee shop is Washington Street Java Company. It’s a long, narrow dimly-lit cafe-type coffee shop right on the square in Kirksville, MO. My best friend and I meet there for supper before every quilt guild meeting. All their food is made from scratch right there, and it is soooo good.

They have breads, salads, sandwiches, quiches, and the most decadent desserts. My favorite thing of all is their coffee milk shake. One just never seems like enough! They have all kinds of drinks, and their coffee is wonderful. They also sell coffee and tea by the pound, so you can take it home, but that’s just never the same — they have great atmosphere.

To the left is more seating area. I took the picture from where I was sitting along the side wall — it’s one long bench with tables all down the entire length of the cafe. They hang art by local artists, and the displays change quite often. They also have reading material, so you can really hang out, even lounging on the couch. There are tables in the window, if you prefer to sit and get the street view, and in the summer, you can also sit outside at tables on the sidewalk. They also have a back room where you can play board games or cards. I took the picture at a slow time on a slow evening. It’s a favorite hangout for all the students from the nearby medical college, and they haven’t all come back to school yet. By next week, the place will be packed again.
