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.

Excellent choice of coffees!

Lots of choices, very friendly staff! Prices were good, and the coffee was delicious! You can get coffee, latte, mocha, espresso, you name it, they have it here at Java Jive!

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.

Java Jive is a great spot in downtown Hannibal if you're missing your Starbucks fix. They have a variety of tasty drinks, desserts, & sandwiches that should satisfy even the most pickiest eater. Everything tastes really fresh. It's located in an old building and decorated with a lot of cool, antique dining room & kitchen furniture from around the 1950s,... More

Delightful place to sip a cool drink or one of the delectable hot drinks offered. Sandwiches are quite good as well!

Walking around and wanted to get lunch. Java Jive's atmosphere was buzzing. I had the turkey, cranberry pecan salad and I didn't go away hungry. My husband enjoyed the homemade black bean soup. Highly recommend finding this café.

Aside from it being about the only place that seemed to be open for lunch in Hannibal it is actually a very nice little place. They do excellent sandwiches with lots of variety. My boyfriend had the soup and didn't massively rate it but I had a meat filled sandwich and it was delicious. They also sell cute little things... More

Driving through Hannibal on way from Chicago to Kansas last night (7/2). Stopped for dinner and wanted to eat at the Java Jive. In the restaurant before 8:00, reviewing the menu, but could not order until 8:01 and was told by the staff that sandwiches and soup stopped at 8:00. It was unfortunate as we wanted to shop a little... More

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 wife had a chicken salad sandwich... More
