Koinonia Coffee House

Posted by YAR 23 Apr 2010 No Comments


Koinonia Coffee House (136 S. Adams St, Jackson) is in a big yellow house on the edge of downtown Jackson.  Inside, it is charming and pleasant, and is exactly the kind of coffee house I always looked for as a student: quiet, well-lit, and with plenty of comfortable places to study.  There were two larger rooms with tables, but I preferred a side room that felt like a well-decorated living room and included this cute nook.


I apologize for going to a coffee house and not reviewing the coffee, but I drink my coffee with so much milk that I am no judge of it anyway.  Instead I had one of their specialty smoothies, the Bengal — orange cream with chocolate “stripes.”  It was delicious, and despite having told myself I’d just have a few sips, just to try it (for the blog) I ended up nearly finishing it.


For my lunch I had the Apple Cider Chicken Salad Sandwich ($5.95 half, $7.50 whole), which comes with chips, salad, or veggie sticks.  The chicken salad included small chunks of apple, which made it light, crisp, and slightly sweet.  I enjoyed the sandwich, and I am always happy when I find good options for a slightly lighter lunch (canceled out by the milkshake in this case, of course).


Koinonia also offers breakfast (including Belgian crepes, which I’d like to try) and some good-looking baked goods.  It’s open Mon-Thurs 7:30am - 7:30pm, Friday until 6pm; the number is 601-960-3008.
