There is always something happening down at Java Jive. In the morning, you can join in on a heated political debate with the Royal Academy of Gentlemen sitting outside, cozy up on a gently used sofa with one of the daily papers or recent magazine, and catch up on e-mail and business with our free wi-fi. Our coffee selection features coffees from all around the world in a variety of flavors and roasts, sure to suit any taste. We take pride in using a local roaster, Chauvin Coffee, a family owned business now in its fourth generation of roast masters. Java Jive also offers a wonderful selection of fresh baked goods and deli items each day. We pride ourselves in having bakers and chefs that work tirelessly to create new and interesting soups, salads and desserts.

We stopped by the Java Jive twice during our stay in Hannibal, both times for an afternoon coffee pick-me-up. Very cute and quaint space. Plenty of seating available, including comfy couches if you prefer. Clean and tidy bathroom available for customers. I am a fan of flavored coffees, so I very much enjoyed my drinks which included vanilla, almond, caramel,... More

Food isn't so good! Coffee is just ok! Best thing about it is the charm which could be cleaned up a bit!

It was a great cup of coffer. About as expensive as Starbucks, but worth it. It was hot, sweet and great tasting.
