Many (all?) argue that Jay's has the best coffee in Morgantown. While that may be true, I'm not a coffee connoisseur, so I'll take their word for it. But if you want a killer hot chocolate, Jay's is my choice. It's very convenient if you're on campus, so it's a go-to lunch spot.
They have: coffees, espressos, drinks, breakfast sandwiches and lunch sandwiches. I am always hesitant about getting a deli sandwich. Because why would I pay someone to make something I can make just as easily? Well, these are a little different.
Walk up to the counter, browse over the menu briefly and make some quick decisions. They even had small samples on the counter this day. I ordered their "Dagwood" sandwich: turkey, ham, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, mayonnaise and yellow mustard. I also got a hot chocolate and a water. They give your drinks right to you at the counter, then go find a seat on either side of the ordering area (there are breezeways into the Book Exchange on the side), and someone will bring you your food.
A few things I love about this little lunch place: The service is stellar. They are always super friendly, super helpful, and totally knowledgable. And if you order coffee, they swirl a pretty little drawing in your cup. They do a few things, and they do them well. AND, the view here is kinda cool. They have a barstool area where you can chow down on your sandwich while watching passers-by. I'm a total people-watcher, so I like that, especially if having lunch alone.
The food is good. The ingredients are fresh, simple, but combine for a delicious flavor. It's straight to the point, but also super tasty. And they give you a pickle and side of chips. Check them out next time you want to get a quick lunch downtown. Just make sure you have cash! Here's their Facebook.
