Jham Bar voted Gladstone's most popular coffee spot

JHAM Bar was the clear winner on The Observer's recent Facebook post asking residents to vote for their favourite local coffee shop.

Owner Anthony Breed said the popularity was a result of good customer service and brand diversity.

The first store was opened in July 2013 on Toolooa St, and is a takeaway coffee window that operates out of the Anthony Breed College of Music.

The new store, opened last month at Sun Valley, has fast become a Gladstone favourite.

It has indoor and outdoor seating, and a range of different cakes and slices as well as late-night Thursday "date nights" with live music.

"We have a lot of loyal customers and our staff's great," Mr Breed said.

"We've got a really good team of people and the brand is diversifying."

He said they served more than 300 coffees a day just at the Toolooa St premises.

One of the more bizarre coffee requests he's had at the cafe was "a half-strength decaf soy vanilla flat white".

"I'd like to thank Gladstone for their ongoing support," he said.
