About MJ's Coffeehouse
By Natalie Hope McDonald

MJ's Coffeehouse, voted one of the top favorites by local and regional newspapers and magazines, has ushered in a wide array of activities over the last several years. While the coffeehouse operates independently from the theatre, it is adjoined to the theatre, serving deli sandwiches, soups and salads, gourmet coffees and teas, specially blended brews, as well as delectable pastries and ice cream desserts.

The coffeehouse is a magnet for creativity. Poetry readings and live musical presentations inspire crowds of customers. A revolving art exhibit provides an outlet for local painters and photographers to exhibit works to well-populated audiences of all ages.

The coffeehouse provides select board games, periodicals and daily local newspapers which are all circulated among its customers. Monday night boasts one of the more popular evenings with an open mic night beginning at 9pm. where musicians, poets, comedians, and philosophers have open reign of the stage. Much like the Allen Theatre, the coffeehouse works closely with the Lebanon Valley College community. The most talented jazz and other styled musicians provide entertainment on selected Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Play readings as well as comedy improv assist periodically in continuing a tradition of offering the region a wide variety of entertainment.

MJ's Coffeehouse is meant to provide a space for people to relax, not feel hurried, to communicate in a time when personal communication seems to be at a minimum. It is not uncommon for students to spend many hours at MJ's preparing future academic assignments.

Tuesday: 11:30am to 10:00pm
