Return to this coffee shop every time we visit Keswick. Flat Whites are perfect and the kids really enjoy the hot chocolates (and maybe the chocolate fountain too!) - perfect to sit in or takeaway while mooching thru the Market!

Great experience here from start to finish, staff were lovely and made very nice coffee. Cakes looked great too but we behaved, the coffee was delicious enough and the upstairs seating was really comfy! Highly recommend.

Great coffee, my daughter had a blueberry bliss smoothie which was tasty and refreshing and we shared a generous sized fruit scone which was lovely, paired with friendly and polite staff in a relaxed ambience and it was a worth while stop.

Set conveniently in the main street, Java Coffee Shop is a grand wee facility for the short break while battling through the market.

An independent quirky coffee shop. Specializing in Coffee and Cakes.. It is also dog friendly. We have outside seating situated in the market square for those warm sunny days.. We also have upstairs seating with large comfy sofas perfect for those cold winter days.. We have a 4 tier chocolate fountain perfect for a little treat or even to keep the kids occupied while you sit back and relax with a perfect cup of coffee... Need we say more!!
