The Jelly General store.

Location: ///without.buck.springtime

I have written before about the tricks to being a bit coffee smug. And of how to use Paramedics to find the best coffee on the road.

Another tip is to look for a coffee cafe with some eclectic funk factor ambience (or EFFA…pronounced Effa).

What exactly is EFFA? Well it’s a tricky thing to pin down. Exactly. And your idea of the funk factor may not align exactly with mine. I like retro, I like industrial, I like Nordic influenced. But what it always means is that the owners have put some thought into expressing their own personal coffee zeitgeist.

One thing is certain, cookie-cutter trendy decor and chain store coffee cafes are to be avoided at all costs.

The Jelly Store has a high Effa factor combining a retro feel general store, post office, and fresh produce cafe. The coffee was good and the scones with fresh cream were not too bad. Overall: 7.5/10.

If they had just added a little 1960 bebop jazz to the mix it would have definitely been peeking on my own Effa vibe.

One response to “The Jelly General store.”

  1. Love it…Reminds me of our Corner Shop when we were growing up….
