With Halloween right around the corner, ghosts, ghouls and witches are once again making an appearance. Though most will usually see only kids running around in costumes, some say that they see more than just trick or treaters. In fact there are some haunted coffee houses. Who knows, you may just see a ghost or two while you have a cup of your favorite brew.
If you take your coffee at 705 Franklin Street in Clearwater, don’t be surprised if things suddenly move. Owner Robin Loesberg claims that her coffeehouse has a resident African American ghost whom they call JJ. She says that he is a protective spirit who probably has some unfinished business. He makes his presence felt several times a week. Nobody knows who he is though there are no records of anyone dying in the building, even way back when it was still used as a citrus storage warehouse.
So keep your eyes open. You may just find yourself with unexpected company, even if it isn’t Halloween.
