Lafayette Coffee House Johnston Street Java Announces Permanent Closure
Johnston Street Java, a popular coffee house situated at 3123 Johnston Street, has announced its permanent closure.
Signs prominently displayed on the drive-through window and front door of Johnston Street Java informed customers that the final day of business will be August 4, 2023 due to the retirement of its owners. As the owners bid farewell to their longstanding establishment, customers are left with only a few weeks to enjoy their favorite drinks and treats.
Located in a prime spot, Johnston Street Java has been a centrally located, full-service coffee shop offering an array of refreshments, including frozen smoothies, frozen lemonade, milkshakes, frappes, and a delectable selection of pastries. The coffee shop prided itself on its convenient drive-through option, providing a quick and easy way for customers to grab their favorite beverage on the go. Moreover, the indoor seating area and outdoor seating provided a welcoming ambiance for patrons to relax and enjoy their drinks.
The coffee house's location in front of the Grand 16 Theater and within walking distance of Moncus Park in Lafayette made it a popular spot for moviegoers and park visitors alike. The convenient positioning on Johnston Street, one of the major thoroughfares for traffic in Acadiana, ensured a steady flow of customers over the years.
Speculation has already begun circulating regarding the future of the Johnston Street Java space, with rumors suggesting that Jet Coffee might take over. However, these rumors remain unconfirmed, and no official statement has been issued by Jet Coffee regarding the potential move. We reached out to Jet Coffee for confirmation and will provide updates if their plans are indeed true. It is certain, though, that the Johnston Street Java location will not remain vacant for long, given its prime location and high demand for coffee shops in the area.
As the owners of Johnston Street Java embark on a new chapter in their lives, the community expresses its gratitude for their dedicated service over the years. Acadiana residents and loyal customers extend their warmest wishes to the owners as they embark on a well-deserved retirement.
