Worth the Wait

We had a very nice breakfast. Be advised, there is a sign in sheet. We were waiting to give our name and I watched a lady walk up and put her name on a sheet. I wish I knew the line was for people getting to go orders.

We've met our daughters here twice for Sunday brunch and had quite a long wait for this popular local cafe. The coffee menu is not as intimidating as Starbucks and has the added advantage of being in an actual cup, hence no cardboard taste. The brunch menu covers everything from eggs to burgers. My husband said his biscuits and gravy... More

Can't wrong in AM, $8.64 for breakfast specials. Must get there early, or wait may be 30min to a hour. Service is excellent. Got to try dinner soon.

The low carb egg scrambler with a side of tomatoes was delicious. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated, but it was well worth the wait.

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

Come here when in town for breakfast. Excellent food served in a funky, come as you are place with down home atmosphere. The employees are fun, efficient and knowledgeable. No accommodation seems to be too difficult for the kitchen or servers to meet. It is worth a visit for the people working there alone, then add great food, happy atmosphere... 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
