We'll be back to Java Jacks :)

The salads hit the spot. We enjoyed teh homemade dressings and fresh presentation. I liked that the portions were controlled - filling, but not too much. Great food and thanks for the tea!

We had lunch here while running an errand on the northern neck. We ordered the fish & chips and asked for the chips to be extra crispy and they were perfect. The fish was exceptional....and all for $8.99. Because the portions were so generous, we ordered 3 desserts to go. The reason for the 4-star rating is based on the... More

To the casual obserer a name like Java Jacks is inviting to the fine coffee crowd which if you stop there will not be disappointed, but it is much, much more. Wonderful menu options to include Chesapeake Crab Benedict, homemade quiche, omlettes. It's obvious my meals at Java Jacks have been during the breakfast/early lunch time, but every meal (+20)...

This is a great cafe! The food was delicious and at a good price point. If you love that touch of seafood to awesome classics, stop by. Do not expect a lot of coffee choices.

Okay, I'm biased. I end up eating here a couple of times per month for lunch and generally have a very nice experience. I would not go back otherwise. The owners are very friendly and they hire equally friendly waitresses, who pretty much know what I am going to order each time I visit. The facility is in an older... More

We have enjoyed breakfast and lunch at Java Jacks in Tappahannock! My husband loves their fish and chips and I love their Rueben panini. Their crab cakes and steak sandwich are delicious, too! Sweet potato fries and hand cut fries are pleasing sides! Great atmosphere with friendly service and outstanding food. Owner, Mimi McComb, does a wonderful job! Definitely worth... More

Essex county has developed a rich past downtown with many nice small shop but this piece of the past was very tasty. Breakfast was extra special with blueberry pancakes, eggs, and bacon. From the many rooms of old decor to the all glass corner window seat we enjoyed our visit. Very clean, friendly staff I love this place and will... More

A wonderful alternative to chain or institutional restaurants, Java Jacks is like visiting your favorite coffee bar, tea house, or home style lunch diner, maybe all three wrapped up in one sweet little house. Linen table cloths, attractive and friendly waitresses, cosy nooks for private conversation, free wifi, short order cook Maria always on standby! This is a delectable local... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way home from a busy holiday weekend only to find a very quaint old building with the best lattes and brunch selections. I had the banana walnut french toast with a side of Jacks (fried dough with powdered sugar, much like a benet in New Orleans). the food was Absolutely fantastic!!! Prices were... More
