“Service Wise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great food, even better coffee, however sometimes it takes way to long to get served, and draw attention to a waiter.

Ordered a child's and bens burger, waited 30 minutes in half empty restaurant and when arrived after the first bite both burgers were raw and uncooked inside despite our earlier warning to the chef as this happened to us before. sent this back waited another 15 min, and was ok.

“Java Nosedive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Having been a frequent customer of the Java since the first cafe opened at Adams Arcade, I can't help but be really disappointed with it now. The service is really poor, in all the branches and it seems to be really trying to cut costs (at the expense of quality) wherever they can (see:the cafes no longer have the serviette dispensers on every table as before). That said, the coffee is still good, though you may have to wait for it for a while.

“Only place to get American Style coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Starbuckesque bistro coffee house. The baked goods taste of western flour not the heavier and coarser African flour.
