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.

LOVE this place!

Whether you just want a specialty tea to cool down w/ or a hot coffee to enjoy w/ a friend after work or a unique, lightly unique meal or desert, this trendy place is perfect! Totally eclectic hand-me-down furniture (some a bit rough, but I'm picky). In addition, it is housed w/ Ayers Pottery... read more

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Had a cranberry turkey pecan salad and a Rockwall sandwich which was very good. I would definitely recommend this place to stop for a sandwich, salad and or cofee/tea.

The most helpful and friendly service of a 9-day trip. My family stopped here for a late dinner and enjoyed good french onion soup, custom-made sandwiches, brownies desserts, fresh/hot coffee and a comfortable and enjoyable rest along a big road-trip. Always great when the grown-ups like the food, and the youngest (8 years) can enjoy a PB & J with... More

My high school friends and I ate there twice and found the salads and sandwiches quite good, the shop has interesting decor and you can buy their beautiful pottery at the shop next door.

The Java Jive caught us a bit by surprise. A totally hip, eclectic space in the heart of a mostly quaint downtown Hannibal. On a Monday (holiday) morning in February, the shop was pretty well filled with mostly younger, creative types. The brightly colored panels and art throughout the surprisingly large space complimented the clientele nicely. As two 20-something librarians... More

Downtown Hannibal has a great vibe. If you need a place to relax or get your afternoon buzz, this is it. Just make sure you have about 15 minutes to wait on your coffee order though. This place always has a line! Great artwork too.

This is a quaint little shop when you walk by it will draw you in. The aromas are amazing. It's a fun place to stop into with a good menu. Prices are average. Staff are fun.

Pleasant space with high ceilings and lincrusta ceilings. Sandwiches and soup were good. Sandwich meat was typical sliced lunch meat. I'd prefer real turkey breast and ham but don't often get unprocessed meat at a place like this. Coffee was good and free wifi a plus. Very friendly service.
