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.

Java is a great choice for a light breakfast. Their steamed eggs on croissant are always a favorite. Can be crowded but worth the wait in line and once your order is placed, food service is quick. We also love to ride bikes down to Java in the summer months and eat breakfast on their outdoor deck.

The property manager of our vacation rental sent us here for the best coffee in town. A huge let down. The coffee tasted burned. The service was also under par, not so friendly. Later, we tried Bigwood Bread co. and Rolling in Dough at Ketchum/Sun Valley, also recommended by the property manager for best bakery. Both have far superior coffee/espresso... More

I love Java because of their Bowl of Soul! But the service I get from the girls in the Ketchum location is horrible! I'd rather go to Starbucks!

Love this place, nothing beats a Bowl of Soul and Avocado toast to get the day started. Unassuming little building keeps the "tire kickers" away. And of Todd happens to be around to offer a smile and welcome, your day just got a little brighter...!

The coffee is great, the muffins are fabulous, and the service is A+. The banana bread was dry, but, everything else was really good. Lots of locals....

We ended up going back here three times on a four-day visit. It seemed crowded on our first visit, but we were amazed at how fast the line moved and how cheerful all the workers were. We enjoyed sitting on the patio or in the back room, and enjoyed the comfortable, eclectic furniture. It was nice to not be in... More
