Stopped in this afternoon with my mother for a warm cup of coffee and pastry. One girl at the counter. The wait was unbelievable. Trying to show my mother I have patience, I waited and waited and waited. Felt so sorry for the one girl behind the counter. The coffee in the thermos containers was cold. Some were completely empty.... More

Great place to meet a friend to talk and catch up on life events. They have nice sandwiches, salads, and coffee drinks or tea. It is also a place to just have a coffee and pastry. It is small so at the busy lunch hour you might have to wait a bit to be seated. They also have special music... More

Coffee is good but food is mediocre. Ordered a pastry with my coffee and it was not fresh. Staff is not over friendly.

My kids wanted to try this spot-given my previous experiences w/it, I tried to dissuade them w/out any luck. They advertise their crepes as a specialty item in their menu & online for every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. It was Saturday, there was a board up with the various types of crepes-we placed our order-the girl at the register states... More

The owner's of this place are very nice. I stop in on m y lunch break, and she always greets me by name. Wraps and soups are yummy. I love that the sandwiches/wraps come with chips and salsa. Good prices

cozy place to visit with friends, and have a cup of coffee and pastry, or salad or sandwich. No pressure from staff to hurry, finish food and leave. They have a section in the back with a sofa, comfy chairs, board games, mags, and a fake fireplace.

I will go to Javateas to grab a latte and a bagel. The employees are nice and friendly, they're not the most knowledgable, but i've never had a bad cup of coffee. I've seen the food and it doesn't make me want to try it, but others seem happy with the menu items.

I have a real love-hate relationship with this place. It's the only decent coffee place in Ephrata, so I keep going back - but with periodic interruptions because I get fed up with the attitude. I always leave with a great cup of coffee, but feeling like I've imposed on them. No idea who the regular morning barista is (although... More
