“Gem in Sun Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We just pick this one out on our way out of town and so glad we did! We had the hippie (breakfast burrito) and an everything bagel. They touched the dish off with fruit. It was delicious and we both said it was a shame we had not found this gem earlier in our visit. Service with a smile and update atmosphere. They play music from late 60's early 70's.

“never fails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

family is in town and all they want is a "bowl of soul" so we gave them what they want.
they all had breakfast there, as well, and very happy with the steamed eggs!!
even on the way to the airport, we stopped at the java in hailey and asked them to split a "bowl" 3 ways..and the did.
thanks, great job.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

I really like their breakfast, made fresh. The coffee is weak, and no big flavor that might accompany lighter roast coffee.
I can not think of any reinvestments back into this establishment for maybe 10 years. The cheap chic worked then, now just worn out and used. You might feel that way on a bad visit all attitude.

“A standard in Ketchum for breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Java is a great choice for a light breakfast. Their steamed eggs on croissant are always a favorite. Can be crowded but worth the wait in line and once your order is placed, food service is quick. We also love to ride bikes down to Java in the summer months and eat breakfast on their outdoor deck.
