Java Joes CoffeeHouse has opened its location at DART Central Station at 620 Cherry St. Java Joes will be open at the station from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The coffeehouse has a menu of coffees, other beverages, pastries, sandwiches and soups. An open house with free coffee and cinnamon rolls will be held on Friday from 7 to 9 a.m. According to a previous Business Record article, Java Joe's signed a 10-year lease and will pay $10,976 for the first year, after which the payment will increase periodically to $19,208 per year for the final three years of the agreement. DART made the initial rent less expensive because the coffee shop will pay up front to build and customize the interior of the space.
