Yum and filling. The green chili smothered makes it even better. My kiddos love the fresh baked good and flavored steamed milk. Great place to meet friends for coffee or to pick up goodies before work or on the way skiing.

While a bit on the petite side, and possessed of only a single bathroom, the Java Moose makes up in value and flavor what it lacks in square footage. Try the berry bars, or the breakfast burrito, and whichever kind of coffee you drink (or chai or tea), this is the place to enjoy it to the fullest potential flavor.... More

We had an early morning departure from Crested Butte en route to the Springs. We stopped at Java Moose for two skinny lattes. Fast, cheap and delicious. 'Nuff said! Thank you~ oh, we had a bite of the blueberry crumble samples at the counter. They were awesome. CASH only.

The Java Moose is the only place in Fairplay to get a decent breakfast or lunch sandwich and your favorite coffee drink. But take heed, they don't accept credit cards and the place is usually busy.

Wow - great cappuccino. Also my hot roast beef with havarti cheese sandwich was freshly made and delicious. Nice atmosphere too. Would highly recommend.

Every time we've stopped at this location the (owner? Blonde) servers are SO rude & we ALWAYS say we'll never return, but somehow, only if the Brown Burro is closed, we make an exception. Not anymore. Today was the final "rude" straw. Your food & beverages are mediocre, microwaveable, & ridiculously overpriced & your attitude towards your patrons is deplorable.

I have been a Java Moose customer for a really long time...since approximately 2004. They do some things really well. I love the BLAT, the blueberry bar, the nuts/chocolate bar (bristlecone bar?), and they have great coffee and ice tea. The everything bagels are tasty and the breakfast burritos have delicious fillings, even if the wrapper gets a little soggy.... More

We were on our way to Breckenridge and needed nourishment. Salads all around the table were big and fresh. Panini was done right. Coffee was on target. Place is no frills but handled a busy lunch crowd well for being small town.
