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.

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.

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

what's different. I got hooked on Gelato in Europe. It's denser, milkier and has a soft smooth taste in my opinion. To me it also has more favor. Expect to pay more though. city Java a nice place to hang out and relax too.

If you're staying in Beaufort, City Java is the place to go for coffee or a snack. Nice variety. Seems to cater to health conscious, but an awesome selection of fresh, hot baked goods.
