I would 100% reccomend Javas to anyone visiting or staying in Galway. Be it sweet or Savour food you will not be disapointed. It is off the main track of town but that offers a nice intimate cosy setting. The service by the waiting staff...More

I am a regular customer. 20 years I came for the coffee and free postcards. Now I come to treat my son to his favourite pancakes and have the best salad I've had. Lovely staff and a pleasant atmosphere just makes this place our go...More

Having visited many years ago, my family decided to revisit on a trip to galway city. We were not disappointed. Beautiful crepes, generous size and plenty of filling. Could not fault it. Small and cosy atmosphere and the staff are friendly. From start to finish...More

We were served by a sulky, grumpy and unenthusiastic blonde waitress. I won’t come back because the atmosphere she created was just horrible and I have experienced her moody attitude twice now. Hire new bright and enthusiastic staff and I might come back. :) I...More

Come here for late evening dinner, the crepes is awesome, not too sweet and mix well with cappuccino. The upstairs decor is great!

I have been in this place only once, but I liked the atmosphere. We ordered hot chocolate, coffee, tea, some scones and some crepes. Everything was good and the staff is also nice. It's very good if you like a break from your day.

Nice little French/Breton crêperie and café. The atmosphere is relaxed, with calming, well-chosen music. The crêpes are delicious. I've been here a few times and always enjoyed it. Advance notice: I don't think it's wheelchair accessible.

We go to Java's every week at least once when leaving work. In spite of the inattentive service sometimes, we always come back. However, Thursday night we waited 12 minutes for the waitresses to look at us and realize we are ready to order. It's...More
