So Starbucks for a place to linger, meet, people watch. The best thing to hit Newtown; but, wihen I need a coffee, it's Dunkin!

Of the places you list, I would pick ZSW, but going off the list, I like Jakes better than any of them. I cannot supprt the national chains if there is an indie option.

Alex: I've never been to ZSW ... how much seating do they have?

I'm a little biased but Becky's Deli has great coffee and a nice window to observe the lively State street banter. Aditionally the ecletic customer stream adds to the show!

Harry - there's something about good people watching that makes a cup of coffee that much more enjoyable!

Couple Hundred cups a day and 20 years in Newtown and you forget us so fast?

That's the World Famous Bagel J!

Steven - just added Bagel Junction!

Not a place to hang out, but Wrightstown Country Store (413 & Penns Park) makes an awesome cup of coffee.
Kara Seymour February 21, 2012 at 07:51 PM
Heather, agreed. Cheap, too!

Aloha, I live in Hawaii on the Northshore of Oahu and with the terrible tragedy to the community of Newton, I just wanted to send some Hawaiian Kona coffee maybe 10 bags to a coffee house there that can make if and give it out to folks...I deliver mail here on Oahu in Wahiawa and wanted to do something small for people to enjoy...can anyone make any suggestion???? I don't think Starbucks would be one of the choices tho...thanks Kathy Myers
