Great Lunch

We were walking around the old section of Hannibal and decided to stop and get some lunch. The cafe is located in one of the old historic buildings downtown and maintains its turn of the century charm. Cavernous, high ceilings and plenty of area around the seating make for a nice, open feel. My... read more

Definitely try their local flavors selection, the Heath Shake was excellent! Did not eat any of the food offered but saw lots of people enjoying there choices. Try this great... More

Hannibal was our lunch spot on a recent trip. Based on their #1 TripAdvisor rating, we thought we would like LaBinnah Bistro. Wrong. Sign on the door: “closed today”. Not too worry, we switched to Plan B - coming in at number two: Java Jive. Ready for another rant (a mild one)? One would think that an “other than typical... More

This is a cute coffee shop in a restored storefront right in the heart of Hannibal. The food was excellent (everything from daily soups, unique salads, create your own sandwiches, and yummy desserts) and although you place your order at the counter and bus your own plates, etc., the staff is very friendly and helpful in deciding what to order....

Beautiful old building. Huge space! It used to be a clothing factory I guess. The coffee was average. The pastries were surprisingly good.

That's what my husband said last night when we had dinner. The price was good, the decor wacky, and the service sweet. Good location.

My wife and I stopped by Java Jive twice when we were visiting Hannibal. They have a wide selection of hot and cold drinks. My first experience was with the frozen version of the Snickers cappuccino. It was delicious! I felt like I was having dessert. On the second visit to this coffee shop, I had a hot Milky Way... More

What a unique experience! Java Jive is situated in a 1902 building. This antiquated building is a pleasure to enjoy friends and a cup of coffee.

Eclectic coffee house. The atmosphere was inviting. The food was delicious. The coffee was amazing. We came in around 11 on a Sunday morning. We enjoyed the peace and quiet to study. Around noon, it started filling up with families and groups of friends.
