Breakfast wrap

Usually go for the breakfast sandwich but tried the wrap today. Nice change especially as I now have fewer teeth in my mouth. Was tasty, filling and easy to chew. Great latté.

An interesting place for the "young and "in" group. .A wide and diverse short menu of drinks and wide selection of deserts , pastries and sandwiches. I lay back place to enjoy a respite.

The coffee is fresh and flavourful and best of all, organically sourced. There is a variety of tea and interesting cold drinks as well. If you bring your... More

We had some delicious Chai Lattes with almond milk but the big win were the soft ginger cookies encasing almost an inch of cream cheese icing :). Super good!

When you first walk into Java Jive you're expecting a really great coffeehouse experience as the vibe and decor couldn't be funkier and more fun.

Comfortable outdoor seating as well as indoor seating. Coffee is serve-yourself from thermal pots but nice selection of tea and coffees. Informal, casual, good service, good coffee; closed too early though. (5:00)
