Great coffee and small breakfast. Love the way the place is set up. Great atmosphere. Inexpensive. Fast Wifi. Comfortable chairs. They do have a full menu.

If you are one of the many folks who love to stop for a cup of fresh coffee, espresso, cappuccino, etc., then Java Jive is a place you can't afford to miss. The coffee is fresh and flavourful and best of all, organically sourced. There is a variety of tea and interesting cold drinks as well. If you bring your... More

We had some delicious Chai Lattes with almond milk but the big win were the soft ginger cookies encasing almost an inch of cream cheese icing :). Super good!

When you first walk into Java Jive you're expecting a really great coffeehouse experience as the vibe and decor couldn't be funkier and more fun. But then you actually have to consume the offerings and you wish you'd never showed up. The coffee is literally undrinkable. It is so badly overroasted and bitter that it makes the liquid ash served... More

Comfortable outdoor seating as well as indoor seating. Coffee is serve-yourself from thermal pots but nice selection of tea and coffees. Informal, casual, good service, good coffee; closed too early though. (5:00)

This is a great little coffee shop to get some locally roasted Shuswap coffee which is quickly becoming may favourite. The staff is very friendly and they make great lattes!

The service was so good - we thought we'd been mistaken for a long-lost family friend! Excellent chai tea lattes, cappuccinos, and iced coffees! Nice outdoor patio; considering its proximity to a major road, it was very pleasant.

Visited this place looking for good coffee and muffin. Coffee was good but muffins have a very strange texture... Perhaps they are gluten free? We could not finish them and felt a heavy lump in our stomachs for several hours...also, found the place to be rather dirty, especially the washrooms.
