Coffee drinkers in town have a new place to get their fix, as Java Stop just opened last month.
Due to overwhelming support, the owners, Craig and Heidi Jurasz, held a customer appreciation day on Saturday.
Both owners attribute much of their early success to social media, especially Facebook.
"We have over 800 likes on our page and we've only been open since December 9," said Heidi. "It's been amazing."

They said they wanted to share their love of coffee with the community.
