If you look for great food and service - at a reasonable price - Cafe Java is your kind of place. Breakfast or lunch (haven't done dinner, yet) is always tasty, well prepared, and served quickly - with a smile. Enjoy your meal!

My first visit to Cave Java was for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a 30 minute wait for a table, so we did what we love to do anyway, and grabbed a spot at the bar. The special was banana pancakes. Not one for filled pancakes, i thought I'd try them, since this place looked family owned, and... More

We checked out this place recently based on several favorable reviews and forum recommendations. I had the migas, fruit side, with coffee. BTW, they have free refills on their coffee! The food was delicious and we also enjoyed the slightly retro music selection, with 90's tunes. Coffee was excellent too. Very laid-back vibe to the place, volume conducive to conversation,... More

I stopped in after an early doc appt at ADC for breakfast based on Travel Advisor reviews and I'm so glad I did. I sat at the dining bar since it was crowded and I was alone, and I thoroughly enjoyed my ham, cheese & bacon omelette and a breve' latte. Delicious!!

I was just looking for a nice light snack mid afternoon so I stopped into this cute cafe with weird art on the walls and ordered a green bean and Parmesan soup with turkey and Swiss sandwich. The soup was fabulous; who'd've thought it? The sandwich was light on meat but at least I could taste the Swiss. Do yourself... More

This is one of my favorite places in Austin. When I have an opportunity to have lunch with my daughter this is where we meet. The variety of food is extensive but not overwhelming. The food is fresh and tasty down home cooking. The breakfast and lunches I have experienced were everything you would wish for in a meal. The... More
