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.

We went in for latte's to go and ended up saying because of the back court yard. The atmosphere had us sitting and relaxing for almost an hour! The latte was great but the atmosphere and service was outstanding!

We stepped inside and surprised by how dingy it looked. We ordered a latte which was made very well. The staff wasn't overly welcoming

It is small,and intimate. Sit in the back room and look out the very interest patio with assortment of nicknacks on display. The food excellent, and the presentation adds to the atmosphere and enjoyment. Mr. Breen was the chef and wonderful host.

We always enjoy having lunch at the Java Joint. Food is always fresh & delicious. Make sure you arrive early on weekends due to limited seating & limited lunch hours.

We had an awesome lunch at Java Joint. The service was friendly and prompt, if not fast-food-joint fast. The food was phenomenal. I had a combo 1/2 chicken salad sandwich with garden salad. The meal included a small helping of potatoe salad and fruit. The best thing was a kidney bean salad that was unbelievable! I wish that we lived... More

This is my favorite lunch spot. Homemade soup and quiche everyday. They also have a nice menu for different tastes. Quaint and close quarters. Older property could use some TLC.
