This cute little coffee house was wonderful! We were just passing through, and stopped in to grab some lunch. The atmosphere was adorable, and very clean. I order a cappuccino, which came out in an adorable big mug. All of the food was delicious, and I personally would recommend the blueberry French toast.

On our way to visit our grandchildren in MD from Norfolk, VA, we decided to skip I-95 and go up the Northern Neck. This takes you through Tappahannock, VA. Looking for a place to grab a late breakfast, we fell upon Java Jacks through our Trip Advisor app. Lucky for us! It was delightful. You dine in an old home... More

I'm a coffee connoisseur so to speak. I love a good cup of coffee. We were staying at a hotel near by Java Jacks. When I googled coffee houses nothing came up for miles around except for this little mom and pop place. I thought to myself, OK, I'll give it a try, it HAS to be better than the... More

This is where the locals go, and for good reason! Everyone there seems to know each other. If you're a stranger, the staff will make you feel at home in the house-turned-cafe. The food was homey and outstanding! Crab is what the Tidewater is known for, so I ordered the crab quiche. WOW!!! It was loaded with crab meat, and... More

My wife and I travel 'the back way" just so we can find places like this-- clean little restaurants with great food and great service. We stopped on our way home from the Outer Banks and are happy we did. We got the number 7, eggs with cheese and bacon on a really good croissant, exactly what my wife called... More

Stopped in "just for coffee" and ended up having a whole lunch! I had the river oyster basket with a side of sweet potato fries and my mother had crab bisque. There were more than enough oysters and they were incredibly delicious! The bisque was also amazing! I would definitely come back here again, if I'm in the area.

WE stopped by Java Jacks on our way home from Newport News. The place is quaint, being a converted house. We stopped because it had the best review score in Tappahannock. We arrived at 1 pm on Sunday and were seated immediately. The server was quick to the table with water and menus. We placed our order for a Chicken... More

Tasty treats in Tappahanock. Family friendly with delicious homemade food. Start off w a basket of Jacks and then enjoy an omelette, blueberry French Toast or Po Boy sandwich - all of which are fantastic. Be sure to save room for dessert - they offer an assortment of homemade treats. Will definitely stop by again.
