Citi Java on Carteret St. has great coffee, sandwiches, sweets, and a decent selection of newspapers. It is a small space in a good location. The owner recently opened a second coffee shop on Ribaut Rd, across from the hospital. That space is larger and has lots of light. The new Citi Java serves breakfast and lunch. It is my... More

We found the coffee to be excellent and it didn't give us the jitters! Selection of newspapers and local information is good.

I tried a couple of the breakfast sandwiches -- heated up and toasty, they were quite good. The coffee selection was good, and the service very pleasant, as well.

Stopped in here on a whim and I'm really glad I did. I usually go for a simple brewed coffee but since I was on vacation I decided to go for a specialty drink. I got the German chocolate iced coffee and it was great! Really cute place, friendly staff!

I decided to visit after reading rave reviews in the local indy paper. It wasn't what I expected amenity wise but a zen calmness was experienced upon entering. Simple, uncluttered furnishings and windows on all walls helped. Magazines and newspapers as well as muffins, sandwiches and juices were displayed simply and conveniently. Service was a little slow but I guess... More

I love everything about City Java & News--- the specialty coffees, the food, the décor, music, and the friendly staff. This is a local hangout. I often hear of people chatting about their new business adventures, vacations, moms talking about their children, and people like myself doing school work. The Chicken Burrito, Apple Cinnamon Scones, City Addition (with White Chocolate),... More

This is my second time living in Beaufort. Last time I lived here I thought City Java was the best. To reconfirm that I decided to try the "other" locations. For those visiting the area for vacation or to see your young Marine join the family don't bother going anywhere else. The people that work here know what they are... More
