Java is always our first stop when we arrive in Sun Valley! Their trademark "Bowl of Soul" is the best bowl of coffee I've ever had! Java has great breakfasts including avocado on toast and poached eggs. I've never tried their pastries, but they all look delicious! It can get very crowded,but it is worth the wait in line.

The Eggs & Toast are awesome, best toast & raspberry jelly. The confetti eggs are awesome with a tortilla on the side. The hippie in a bowl is out of this world OR order it "dirty" which mean with bacon. You can get the hippie with or without tortilla. Bagels & cream cheese are my kids most favorite item on... More

Java used to be fun...but the service is not good and the food is just so-so. I would rather go to another coffee house in Ketchum. I wIsh Todd would up his game and get the ice-cream stand going in the summer with actually good gelato and ice-cream. It is so mediocre.

We just pick this one out on our way out of town and so glad we did! We had the hippie (breakfast burrito) and an everything bagel. They touched the dish off with fruit. It was delicious and we both said it was a shame we had not found this gem earlier in our visit. Service with a smile and... More

I really like their breakfast, made fresh. The coffee is weak, and no big flavor that might accompany lighter roast coffee. I can not think of any reinvestments back into this establishment for maybe 10 years. The cheap chic worked then, now just worn out and used. You might feel that way on a bad visit all attitude.
