Boulder Creek Coffee in Lawrenceville is an independent coffee shop in suburban Gwinnett County, GA. This coffee shop offers a wide range of drinks and food, partners with a number of local vendors, and is located in a beautiful setting at the historic Jule Oakes House.
A few photos from a recent visit are profiled below.
The Jule Oakes House
The current location of Boulder Creek Coffee is within the Jule Oakes House (built in 1893), which is the namesake of businessman and mayor of Lawrenceville from 1949 to 1950, Jule Oakes. Prior to Boulder Creek Coffee’s relocation (from Buford, GA) to this historic home in March 2018, the Jule Oakes House served as Lawrenceville’s Visitor Center and housed the administrative offices of both the Lawrenceville Tourism and Trade Association and the Lawrenceville Downtown Development Authority.
This is a majestic space, and Boulder Creek Coffee occupies both floors of this house.
The front and side porches of the Jule Oakes House provide ample outdoor seating:
The Menu at Boulder Creek Coffee
Boulder Creek Coffee serves Counter Culture Coffee, Rishi Tea, Intelligentsia Tea, and Cabbagetown Chai. The menu is extensive, offering sandwiches and breakfast items (served all day!). Boulder Creek Coffee partners with local vendors such as Emily G’s Jam, Fussell Cake Company, Harlow’s Vegan Cupcakes, Pure Bliss Organics, and Seven Sisters Scones to offer various fresh and packaged goods inside their store.
On this particular day, I decided to try out the avocado toast. It was delicious!
The vastness of the Jule Oakes House means that patrons can choose to drink/eat either on the first or second floor of the Jule Oakes House—Boulder Creek Coffee was wise to set up a separate Wi-Fi for downstairs and one for the upstairs. In addition to three study/quiet rooms (such as this) on the second floor, there is a conference room upstairs which large parties can reserve by contacting Boulder Creek staff.
If you find yourself in Lawrenceville, Boulder Creek Coffee is worth a drop-by for the food, coffee, and the wonderful ambiance in the historic Jule Oakes House.
