After doing a fair amount of international traveling, I still find Java Moose to be my favorite coffee. Whenever my husband or I visit home, we make sure to stock up on bags of the Authentic beans. And if our friends love us, then they also bring a bag or two when the visit us in Calgary. We'll ALWAYS be... More

I am a true coffee lover...my old Danish auntie got me started at a young age...I know great coffee. JavaMoose has it, bar none. Perfect drip coffee. Oh and that Red Eye? Most excellent. Service at all locations, and I just happened to visit all of them, was excellent; fast and friendly. Can't wait to go back and enjoy it... More

Stopped at the Java Moose after finding it on Trip Advisor. They make a mean, mean brownie, and some good espresso to boot. Not only that, but we were given some good travel tips by the barista. Also - we got a free drink when we purchased a pound of coffee beans to take home!! They also had some breakfast... More

We certainly appreciated your visit to our Prince William Street Coffeehouse. A JavaMoose Cappuccino is a really great way to start your adventure to Cape Breton. I am so glad you indulged. If I remember correctly, you picked up a pound of our Foghorn Dark Roast. I certainly hope you enjoy the flavour and it helps you navigate the Cabot... More

I really wanted to give Java Moose 4 stars but I can't. I don't like certain sauces so I was sad when I ordered a sandwich but was told they are prepared ahead of time so I couldn't get the sauce omitted. The coffee is good and I like the smoothies but it is no longer a lunch option for... More

We really appreciate your comments about the sandwiches, smoothies and coffee beverages. We decided several years ago to switch to pre-made sandwiches. We of course roast our turkey, ham and roast beef at our Rothesay location. Several stores, because of volume, receive fresh sandwiches from that store every morning. Prince William Street makes their sandwiches every morning using set recipes.... More

I had one of their flavoured coffees and it was awesome. I was really impressed by all of their different options, too. If I lived in the area I would grab coffee here all the time.

Our great team of baristas really appreciates your comments. More importantly, Stephen & Jeff (the guys that roast our coffee) are ecstatic with your review. They work really hard roasting, blending and flavouring our beans at World Headquarters on the East side of Saint John. They truly take pride in our coffees. We look forward to your return to Saint... More

Nice coffee shop serving espresso and pour-over coffee etc. Beans roasted locally. Unfortunately they run a totally over-roasted bean through their espresso machine. Flavour is burned and ashy. They have a lighter roast for espresso but did not offer that one until too late. AVOID the dark/black espresso.

Many thanks for your review. It's always great to get both positive and not so positive reviews of our products. It truly keeps us agile and on our toes. As you noticed, we roast one of our espresso blends extremely dark. In fact we roast our that espresso blend to 450degrees F. We have been roasting our espresso this way... More

If I have to meet someone for business I always suggest Java Moose - either the Prince William mother store or my favourite - the Valley store. Comfy chairs, nice atmosphere and the best coffee anywhere.
