Great place for afternoon coffee

I was pleased that my iced latte was made with pre-chilled espresso, thus eliminating the instant warming and dilution that comes from pouring hot espresso over ice. It really makes a difference. Service was friendly and efficient.

The staff was friendly and in fact made a fresh pot of coffee for us, but it was just before 9am so we were surprised that the day already seemed to be over. There were no fresh pastries either, which seemed odd. The coffee was average and the overall vibe was a little worn out. Not sure if we might... More

I enjoyed a good cup of coffee that wasn't Starbucks which I was forced to drink most of my trip. The coffee here was so good and didn't taste

We went after a day of shopping and it was a great disappointment! The place was dirty. They kept telling us they were out of everything. The building was very hot and they would not turn on the AC. We will never go back!

If you are having a so-so day, the Java Joint will not only provide great food, but friendly service and make you feel right at home. In my opinion the food and the presentation just keeps improving. My favorites are Steve's soup creations and I love that I can get a cup of soup, half sandwich and several small tidbits... More

We've stopped here a couple of times and sure enjoy the people, but the drinks are just okay. Often they are only warm, not really hot. And sometimes, they are actually not that good.

We stopped in for a quick business lunch that turned into quite a treat. I had a hard time picking what I wanted from their homemade tuna and chicken salad, homemade soups, and artisan paninis. Fortunately they allow you to pick two for lunch that come served on a platter with a side of chips, a few veggies, and a... More

Java Joint is a small local place that offer unusual offering in soups, sandwich's and cookies. A favorite for downtown business people. I have enjoyed eating there and will go back.

My husband and I ate here for lunch on a Saturday in October. The restaurant was busy and the wait staff was overwhelmed. Thankfully, we were not in a hurry. The place isn't large enough for the service to be so slow. We sat at the counter for at least 5-10 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we were there. It... More
