Joedega fills iced coffee hole in my heart

So apparently it’s not new (#freshmanproblems), but Joedega is making a comeback on College Hill. This aesthetically pleasing truck “proudly serves fresh, locally roasted coffee from small farms around the globe.” I’m in! Just in time for reading week, Joedega’s extensive menu of brewed coffee, espresso, lattes, and teas will keep you pumped up for some quality time in the Rock.

The truck, which is posting up on Brown and George today, promises to be a savior for all those who were missing the iced coffee from Providence Coffee Roasters. And if caffeine isn’t your thing (congrats!), Joedega has a promising smoothie menu! Go check them out and keep supporting the ever-growing plethora of food trucks on campus.

Those Blue Room iced coffee floats are back

The floats will be served until “seven-ish” according to Fitz, so get ’em while there’s still dirty chocolate ice cream left! Fitz says they’re too “decadent” to have every Friday afternoon, though they might return in the future.

But we love decadence.

Brown apparently does NOT run on Dunkin’


In honor of today, this intrepid blogger made the voyage to not one, but two, local Dunkin’ Donuts, only to learn that (a) the event is something stores must opt into and (b) Providence has selected to hold their special day later in May. But here’s the catch: it’s not even “free” iced coffee day when PVD celebrates; now it’s 50 cent day. (No, not that fiddy cent.)

If you’re willing to drive to Massachusetts, New York or Philadelphia, you can get your free fix there today — local franchises are all respecting the holiness that is Free Iced Coffee Day. Otherwise, we’ll see you in the Blue Room.


Today is the greatest day of the year. Many make that claim, but there is nothing that can compete with the legendary nature of Dunkin Donuts’ Free Iced Coffee Day.

For those who ever frequented the Thayer Street franchise, today is the day when its absence is most painful.

Understanding that free coffee is worth great leaps and bounds, here is what the general Providence area can offer you:

1. 141 Westminster Street
2. 78 Dorrance Street
3. 133 Gano Street
4. 81 Washington Street
5. Providence Place Mall

Go ahead Brown, have no shame. Drink it all in.

Best. Day. Ever.

Reports are in: Blue Room iced coffee is back.
