We often go to eat here whilst on holiday in the North Coast. The menu has a wide variety of drinks and food to choose from, and we have never ordered anything that was not delicious. The food is also priced very good and very good value for money.

We've been to Java twice during our stay in Umdloti - the first time for breakfast and second time for lunch. Both times we had really good service and the food was equally lovely! Their cajun chicken salad is simply fab! A really good place for light meals and good service and not overpriced at all.. Very enjoyable experience!

We absolutely love Caffe Java Umdloti. Open from 7am, this elevated venue has a balcony which if you can get a table at, provides a stunning view of the sea. Between 8 and 10 we have often seen whales, dolphins, whale sharks, and large rays cruise by. The food is wonderful, with a huge number of breakfast, brunch and lunch... More

The one thing this place has going for it is the location. Umdloti is beautiful and the views from here are incredible. That's where the good things end unfortunately. This is the classic example of badly implemented owner/manager separation (maybe also an owner who has no finesse for food) This is food for people who don't know what good food... More

This was our breakfast spot - freshly picked avocado on toasted rye bread, delicious! Hubby preferred the full bacon-eggs-toast thing.

About the only place in Umdloti Beach open on Sunday morning for breakfast/brunch. Very good variety of food on menu to suit all palets. Some unusual and tastey items on the menu. Clean, open-feel to restaurant area. We ate in a group of 6 persons... not one of us was dissapointed with the brunch (including the speed-of-service/taste/presentation/etc.) The venue is... More
