“Java food is awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2015

Well no doubt Java has a good menu... This particular branch is in a busy area hence at times getting a table is a mission...and I also noticed the staff here are less friendly or welcoming compared to other branches.....not a place to have a good bussiness meeting...too loud..
