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

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.

I go to City Java all the time. It's a quality coffee-shop that has a very modern feel: almost like a city-feel in the lowcountry. Their iced coffee uses frozen coffee cubes versus regular ice: so your drink doesn't get watered down. I loved this concept. I always recommend City Java to individuals asking, and often take my clients there... More

Small space but big on character. Frozen coffee drinks hit the spot on our hot-day visit. Price was right, too!
