Every college town has their local haunt... usually a bar. For University of Virginia students and Charlottesville locals, it's the coffee bar at Shenandoah Joe Coffee Roasters, whose roasted beans, friendly atmosphere, and pastries compliments of HotCakes blend the best of both worlds. Owner and founder Dave Fafara is up early each morning roasting beans in the back of the shop, only later to hit the road and deliver beans around town to the local restaurants. With one location on Preston Avenue and another on Ivy Road heading out to the Blue Ridge Mountains, these spots are hard to miss (or pass up).
