First timer. Really liked it. Small home grown coffee shop. Had the baked oatmeal with apple and it was good. Little covered patio off the front. Have sandwiches as well as a lunch menu. Also drive thru. When in the area I'll be here again.

We are always on the hunt for great coffee (not sugar drinks) on our travels. This definitely rates very high on our list! Anytime we are in the area we will be stopping by.

CJ's in downtown Denison is a great little place to stop. I have been there several times for a luncheon. Some of the freshest and tastiest things on their menu. They also have delicious desserts. Definitely worth checking out. Highly recommend.

If you're looking for a quaint place to have lunch or an afternoon coffee, then check out CJ's Coffee Cafe. I always enjoy restaurants run by the owner as opposed to a chain.

Welcome to CJ's Coffee Cafe in beautiful downtown Denison, TX! We're the former Country Java, and we've still got the same stellar customer service that our long-time patrons have come to love. If you're a newcomer, you're sure to love our famous oat wheat bread and rolls, which we bake fresh in our ovens every morning. We use only fresh ingredients, and we use locally-roasted coffee.What are you waiting for? Come in and have a cuppa!
