The local community shared their heartfelt best wishes to the owners in the comment section of our original post while others began to speculate on what might take its place. We certainly had our fair share of suspicions but at the time we were not able to get solid confirmation on who would be taking over this prime location

To quote Lizzo "All the Rumors are True" Jet Coffee announced they will be opening a 4th location located at 3123 Johnston St, Lafayette, LA 70503 the formerly beloved Johnston Street Java.

Jet Coffee shared a post on social media confirming the rumors that have been swirling through town since Johnston Street Java announced their retirement from the industry.

In the caption on their post they bid Mrs. Marie, the owner of JSJ, one last farewell and share that they are "so excited for Ms. Marie to enjoy her retirement and so honored she has chosen us to pick up where Johnston Street Java has left off".

We are excited to see Jet Coffee thrive in this midtown location right across the street from Judice Inn. It does appear like they will be making improvements to the building and drive-thru area to better serve its customers. Before long we will be in that drive-thru line ordering a Cloud 9.

For now go show your love and support to the Johnston Street Java Staff until August 4th!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
