Barefoots Joe: Refreshed

Barefoots Joe with some updates.

Over the summer, the team at Barefoots Joe gave everyone’s favorite coffee shop a little face-lift. Here’s what Joy Moore, director of Barefoots Joe, had to say about the updates:

“The Barefoots Leadership Team, along with the barista supervisors and director, painted Barefoots to offer a fresher, more modern feel. To accommodate more people (we often run out of seating and are asked to provide more tables), we added four new two-person tables, as well a new bar-height counter. Above the stage, we hung a wooden sign, and Katie Williams hand-illustrated our name in the corner. We replaced couch cushions, added a new light fixture, and removed the blinds. Student Levi Hartsfield built the tables, bar, and sign in collaboration with Joy Moore. The students involved are proud of their work, and their investment creates a deeper sense of ownership in the work of Barefoots to help shape community and culture on campus.”

The atmosphere, which was already wonderful and inviting, has improved with the changes. The couch areas are still great places to gather with friends, and the new tables are perfect for having one-on-one chats. If you haven’t already been by to check it out, maybe an iced coffee run is in order!
