Whenever there is a slot for parking in front, I make it a point to stop here and have my coffee al fresco. Local falvor, much preferred versus the busy Starbucks. There are also modest accommodations and therefore booking can be rather tight. Youn creative-type crowd. So unassuming and this feel is what makes me like this cafe.

visiting from Seattle, finding a good coffee shop can be challenging. Right across the street we found Java Jazz. Great venue, lots to see in tje shop, doubles as a bar too. Can get lattes, cold coffee, etc, pay them a visit.

I really love the ambience of this cozy cafe that has very affordable price. We loved the beef soup a lot especially on a cold evening. It just costs us P200 for 2 people already excluding the rice. The staff are also friendly and there's banig where you can sit on the floor.

One of my favorite places in Tagaytay City whenever I want to chill. Their hot choco is superb, and being surrounded by artwork while playing cards with my friends hyped up on sugar is one of the best memories. :) The food is not very tasty, but great for those on a budget. Their servings are generous.

I love that this place is tucked away from the busy and expensive lane of restaurants that are either boasting of garden-themed restos or the ones claiming to have the best view of Taal. Everything here is unassuming but artsy. The paintings, crafts and the music. The vibe is just perfect for those wanting to get away from the crowd.... More

We came here on a midweek morning, so my cousin and I were the only customers at the coffee shop. Java Jazz displays, on their walls, eye-catching paintings and mixed media art done by local college students and professional local artists. Attached to the dining area is also a one-room gallery where you can appreciate, browse and purchase other paintings.... More

I've been seeing Java Jazz whenever we go to Highlands. Finally got to try it today for dinner. The Lechon Kawali which they said was their best seller was almost entirely fat. The pork binagoonan was tough and mostly eggplant. The chicken burger is way smaller than what you see in the picture. Ambiance was the only thing we enjoyed.

The foods are great. The place is unique and creative. Need more space for parking lot. We need to park along the highway kasi dalawa lang pwede sa parking. 👍🏼

The Food is really great. Everything we ordered is insanely good. The Tsokolate ah is a killer. Makes me want to get another cup. The rice meals and the desserts are also good. You must try the Fish Fillet with Creamy White Sauce and the Ice Box Cake. Even the Dinaing the Galunggong is good. Surely I will come back.

Nice place to get coffee and rich cocoa drink. They don't have a lot of food options but good enough for its price. The staff were very courteous and helpful too. What makes this place interesting are the art pieces and handmade merchandise diner can opt to purchase. Some of the paintings on the wall are actually available for sale... More
