We chose to eat here due to their soup menu (squash, as well as chicken wild rice soup). They have a wonderful chicken salad with cranberries, grapes and nuts. The pumpkin chai latte was a treat! The bakery items were well done (we chose a pumpkin bars and cookies). There were mismatched retro tables and chairs, as well as couches... More

Very good place to relax. They were very friendly and summed up the spirit of Hannibal. Also think about the sign in the first coffee shop west of the Mississippi

The store is a great place to relax with friends or family. There are tables to sit at, or want to be more cozy, there are sofas. I am not a coffee or hot tea drinker, but I enjoyed a iced peach and ginger tea in the morning and came back that evening for a hot apple cider. I didn't... More

We've been here many times for the great coffee and espressos and they are really good! But this time we were there at lunch time and we split a monet sandwich (ham and cheese with a really good combo of mayo/mustard/pickle on it) and it was really good! My sister-in-law had one the previous month and told us they were... More

We went to the Java Jive on the Main Street of Hannibal. The brownie we ordered was good, but it honestly took 14 minutes to get a cup of hot chocolate and a small coffee, and this was 14 min. after we stood in line to order it. Could not understand why 2 other people who were behind us in... More

The coffee was horrible. The service was horrible. Uncomfortable, very loud. Not what you would expect for a coffee house.

I absolutely love Java Jive. Tired of your same old 'chain' coffee shop? Come to Java Jive. There are a variety of foods, desserts, healthy snacks, and coffee drinks, as well as ice cream, fresh bakery goods and artisan beverages. What I love best though is the atmosphere. You can come and go or come and stay awhile. There's eclectic... More

This is a good coffee stop. My wife REALLY liked the the Ayers Pottery shop in the next block and they are not listed in TA, but this related shop was, so they get two votes for the spot of one!

The staff is so friendly as you order at the counter. The menu on the chalkboard is HUGE, from great deli sandwiches to all kinds of coffees, to excellent ice cream cones and brownies.You can sit on sofas and lounging chairs to visit with friends. It had a terrific ambience. I felt like I was on an episode of "Friends!"... More

This is a very nice coffee shop. They had lots of homemade food items and great coffee. They also had tons of seating and a very eclectic décor. The only dig I would have is that they only had one bathroom! Very family friendly.
