Bear Towne Java

Spent Sunday morning strolling the charming streets of New Bern, North Carolina and found a spot for a morning cup, Bear Towne Java. Perused the menu and picked out a flavored latte, took a while to figure out exactly what flavor, given the numerous options the shop had posted. Given the proximity to Halloween and Thanksgiving, went with gingerbread.

As a first visit to the shop – the first time in New Bern – only getting acquainted with the town, but saw a note indicating the shop was closing on November 1st; including encouragement for regulars to “stop by on Friday Oct. 30 from 5:30 – 7:30 and enjoy a cup of coffee on us and maybe share a memory or two.”

The establishment has been around since 2003.

While it is unclear who is coming into the space, it is always emotional seeing a local coffeeshop go by the wayside – even if it was the first time setting foot into the place.

All the best to all those connected to Bear Towne Java, if the smiles and friendly service received on this first visit is reflective of how they run their business, it’s clear it is will be a missed spot in town.
