A relaxing coffee spot that's also a central component of the collegiate socializing scene..
Phyllis Jordan started PJ's at this location in 1978 as a coffee and tea retail shop. Now, more than two dozen PJ's from Texas to Florida and California boast a cafe feel and food. Collegians of every stripe converge on this popular java-junkie hangout on one of the main drags of Uptown's university area. A small seating area gives way to the slightly cramped main counter; it faces an enclosed courtyard that's quite popular for socializing and study groups. Further back, there's a larger sitting area with a comfy common-room vibe, perfect for catching up on your reading.
The usual coffeehouse offerings--espresso, cafe au lait, mocha and the ever-popular Granita--are augmented with an array of cookies, muffins and croissants. Not to mention, there are several varieties of coffee and tea for sale. Due to its small size, this location does not offer PJ's usual assortment of sandwiches and salads.
Down with Starbucks!. Best bet in town for coffee and little munchies--the Southern Pecan iced coffee will get any day off to the right start. Locations on Magazine Street, Tulane Campus, and South Carrollton, among others. A favorite for students cramming for finals
