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.

What would we Hannibalians do without our beloved Java Jive? Great coffee, pastries, signature sandwiches and salads, gourmet sodas, and unique gifts housed in an eclectic, welcoming atmosphere. If there were no other eatery in town, JJ would suffice.

We stopped for lunch on a rare warm February day. The atmosphere is definitely quirky shabby chic. We noticed the staff was really friendly right away. We started with a dark roast coffee which was very good. Then we ordered a Pollack (chicken salad croissant) and Picasso (turkey and ham on sour dough). Both tasted fresh and delicious. We ended...

Good java, decent prices, and a variety of sandwiches and desserts. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Like all exceptional coffee houses, there were lounge chairs, and a unique boutique adjoining, which offered a nice range of local crafts to commemorate our visit.

We were traveling through on a chilly day so were pleased to have a cup of turkey, sweet potato soup that was full of vegetables and quite tasty. We split a philly wrap and had crunchy cucumbers to really give it a fresh taste. So nice. Tea choices are awesome.

Stopped in Hannibal for a quick bite and some "go" juice. This shop is right in the middle of a cool downtown area that has a lot of life. I know some smaller downtowns are dying, this one is not. The dessert was great, and the espresso was acceptable. There are nick-nacks to browse and lots of seating. The service... More

I Love this place, they have great food and a nice atmosphere. My favorites are soup, sandwich pollock and their cheesecake! ! If you stop in Hannibal you need to go to Java Jive. The best coffee shop in the area. The only negative side their do not have a great wifi signal! !

Really enjoyed this place. The decor is just unusual and fun. The coffee was good as were the specialty coffees my friend and I ordered. This was a little gift shop attached. However, we never got there. It was closed! If we get back to Hannibal we will for sure stop here.
