Happy Customers

“What’s one of the greatest things about working in a new town? Finding an absolute GEM like Sweets and Java. before I forget to mention it, you must know it isn’t just sweets they serve. There are  homemade soups, spicy chili, quiche and grilled cheese – made with grown up cheese!! As far as sweets go, they hit all the marks with cookies, muffins, twists and gluten free offerings. The teas are loose and can be combined to make the flavor you’re craving. Currently, I’m am drowning my exhaustion in a pumpkin iced coffee with coffee cubes (complimentary) and almond milk. I have been off the pumpkin bandwagon but my intuition must have known something I didn’t. The flavors of the spices are so delicious and authentic tasting, a refreshing change from a sugar laden pump of fake pumpkin whatever that turned me away from the fall flavor.
The gracious owner herself offered free wifi, a delicious description of lunch offerings and an inviting, cozy space to spend lunch break in. I almost welcome snow just so I can cozy up here each week and become a regular.”

Such a cute little coffee shop. I had a delicious tea and very nice fresh sandwich on a fresh baguette. The owner is just the sweetest and you can tell she has such a passion for her place and her customers. If I lived in Holden I would spend time here regularly!”
