Are you looking for a classy, sophisticated place to get a great cup of coffee? Look no further than BrewHaha in Greenville, Delaware! Read to find out about our experience
Han and I frequent visitors to Brew HaHa because it’s one of our favorite coffee shops to visit in Delaware. Every time we visit the baristas are always very professional, friendly, and knowledgable about coffee which is always a plus. Whether you’re someone who is a self-proclaimed coffee snob or someone who’s just starting, they’re really patient and informative. In fact, on their website, BrewHaha best describes their shops as the following:
“Inspired by the premier espresso bars of Italy, Brew HaHa!’s series of unique cafes across the Brandywine Valley offer coffee lovers a boutique experience, where every drink is special and individualized attention is paid every step of the way. Our cafes are a marriage of Italian quality and down home Delaware Friendly. Each cafe is situated in a distinct neighborhood within Northern Delaware, and has its own individual look and feel.”
As someone who’s a frequent visitor to their cafes, I would have to wholeheartedly agree with their self-characterization of their shops. In every shop is uniquely designed and exists in different neighborhoods around Northern Delaware. However, until recently, we’d never visited their location in Greenville, Delaware together. We’ve been to and through Greenville several times, but we’ve never actually stopped in it to grab coffee.
So one Saturday morning when we didn’t have anything planned, we hopped in the car and headed to Delaware to one of our favorite coffee shops for coffee and a bagel.

When you first walk in one of the first things you notice is there’s this beautiful bar towards the back of the cafe area. The wall behind it is adorned in wallpaper, creating a clear separation between the cafe area and the dining area where you have to see a host in order to sit (they have a different menu than their other cafes).
The coffee shop is beautifully decorated with green, velvet benches, a deep brown-colored wood bar top with a white marble countertop, beaded chandeliers, and a gallery wall full of references to pop culture and periodic art.
Everything is intentionally placed to make you feel that you’ve walked into a coffee shop where you can socialize with loved ones or get work done, but also an establishment that’s sophisticated. While the decor isn’t nearly as important as how good a cafe’s coffee is, since we frequently spend time reading, writing, and enjoying our time together at cafes, the ambiance of one does make a difference in whether I’ll stay. Good coffee determines how much I’ll frequent a coffee shop, but its cozy environment definitely determines how long I stay in it. I would say BrewHaha does a great job at ensuring that guests do both – enjoy their drinks and their environment.
I don’t know who’s in charge of the decor for BrewHaha’s cafes but each one I go in has a unique style from the other, but it’s beautifully put together. You can tell each cafe was designed with the location in mind.
As with all of their locations, the baristas working there are very kind and help create a welcoming environment. In the time we spent there, you could easily tell who were the ones who frequently visited by how familiar they were with the staff working behind the counters and serving the guests. It’s a classy environment that still maintains it’s cozy feeling for that reason.
As with their other locations, the coffee is incredible. I mean, they haven’t won “Best of Delaware” for their coffee for nothing!
Depending on your preference, there’s probably a brew type for each taste bud. Whether you like your coffee to be robust or you’re looking for something a little lighter, BrewHaha has different brews for different crews. Okay, maybe that was a bit corny. 😉
One of the other things we enjoy about BrewHaha is that they roast their coffee. Although there’s certainly nothing wrong with coffee shops that sell brews from other roasters, I find that most of the shops that produce their own coffee, usually have some of the best coffee and the most options. BrewHaha also sells their roasts so if there’s a blend you especially like, you can ask them what it is and if they have one bagged and ready to go, they will sell it to you.

OUR OVERALL OPINION
Since going to this location, we definitely see ourselves going back again in the future, perhaps even with friends and family to enjoy the brunch menu. While it’s a little bit out of the way of where we usually go when we visit Delaware, it’s a location we can definitely see ourselves visiting for a cup of coffee when we’re nearby visiting relatives or heading to an event. If you’re ever in the Greenville, Delaware area we’d definitely recommend this shop!
