King's Hwy across from Centenary: fresh Java Junction

"The coffee got us in - but the food is what I really want to do. Food is my love. And music goes hand in hand with it," says Lee Bamburg of his sleekly re-decorated Java Junction.

On the corner of King's and Alexander St. and across from Centenary College, the spot is aiming itself toward the college and med school crowd. The wi-fi connection is complimentary and the coffee is Lavazza, which Bamburg says is the most popular coffee in Italy.

A graduate of BPCC's culinary program - "I studied under Chef Liz Dixon" - Bamburg apprenticed in his dad's - Michael Bamburg - restaurants in Bossier and Minden.

The music is being performed early - 7 to 10 pm - and it's an all-ages shop. Performing acoustically Fri, Aug 26, is Keith Horton ($5).

Following Horton:
Lipservice Trio - Sept. 10
Danny Wilder - Sept. 16
Sweet Nadines - Sept. 17
Danny Wilder - Sept. 23
Sweet Nadines - Sept. 24
Lipservice Trio - Oct. 1

Bamburg's favorite sandwich: grilled chicken with balsamic vinegar and olive oil on a bun; it's called the Chicken Alexander for the street next door.

Java Junction: 865-9313.
