Try it, you'll love it. Get a coffee on the run to go or come in and spend some relaxing time by yourself or with friends.

The bakery items were phenomenal and breakfast was very tasty and filling. It was a longer walk than to Starbucks but well worth it.

We went in here a couple of mornings. One morning was rainy and cold and it was definitely the place to be to get out of it all. It was very busy and I can see why. Great coffee and then some! I ordered my first Bowl of Soul. All I can say is WOOOOW!!! I had heard other people... More

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.
