Munching Muffins

I stayed in the adjoining City Loft Hotel and tried the breakfast because I had a discount coupon. The muffins were quite tasty. I'm not a coffee drinker so I didn't try their specialty drinks, but it smelled delicious. The service was a little slow, but overall it was a nice meal.

Good place for lunch, and I should know as I work near by. The Orzo Salad gives you a healthy lunch. Have also enjoyed their wraps. they even have coffee ice cubes so your iced latte does not get diluted.

We were staying in the attached hotel and stopped in for breakfast. The coffee was fine, but the breakfast burritos were dry and not especially tasty. Fine place if you're nearby a want a coffee.

On a bad week once a week to City Java for coffee. On a good one its many more. They are hands down the best in town. The barista's are amazing and always in good spirits regardless of how busy it may be. If you are visiting Beaufort and looking where the locals grab a cup of joe....You have arrived:)

Located in the City Loft motel it offers crafted coffees, pastries, etc. We had the muffins which were fresh and then heated by the lady. Great street views and we sat and watched the Water Festival Parade as we sipped coffee.

Loved my fresh coffee and muffin, but my friend was leery of her chicken salad sandwich because the filling was warm. Sandwiches are served from an open front refrigerated case by the cash register. When my friend commented that the chicken salad was warm, the young lady at the register said the sandwiches are brought over from their larger store... More
