It's okay, but nothing super special

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

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
