Yum!

I am thoroughly disappointed that the best coffee I have had in a long time is 500 mikes away from where I am currently. The coffee at City Java beats the chain coffee places hands down and I will just have to suffer until I get back to Beaufort for a proper cup of coffee. Fresh muffins, scones... read more

I love coffee. When I travel we look and find the best local coffee and sample as many as we can for wherever we visit. I live in Beaufort and I can say without a doubt that City Java is hands down serves the best cup of Joe (my drink is the frozen caramel macchiato) in town. I normally offer... More

Really enjoyed this local coffee shop- delicious coffee and yummy Chicken Salad Wrap Sandwich. I thought the prices were very reasonable and the selection was reasonable for a grab and go place.

This is my hometown spot for a freshly ground, freshly brewed java. Quality stands up to coffee shops in major northeast and west coast brew-town independent barista joints. (The other local coffee shop isn't as convenient and lacks the cool, but welcoming buzz. Never been to our "local" Starbuck's, but how different can it be from the hundreds of others... More

Best coffee in town by far and the best way to start my day! The atmosphere is inviting and the staff is amazing! The owners go out of their way to speak to their customers. Perfect neighborhood coffee shop for locals and vacationers!

A full menu of options from simple ground coffee to espresso to mixed drinks is sure to satisfy any one in your party. Professional and welcoming staff... More
