Egg, cheese, veggie sausage sandwich was very good - especially the house made biscuit it came on. Good coffee and music.

Let's face it, you can get a good cup of coffee any place these days. Nice cozy ambience, good people watching. Food, sweet goodies above average. Beer and wine!

We went here for breakfast but I was a little disappointed in the selection of breakfast items available. I had read such good reviews but I doubt I will return. You won't find me at a Starbucks for breakfast and this place was just a little "funker" but not really what I was looking for. The help was very nice... More

Java Monkey is a funky place, a good alternative to the sameness of Starbucks. It has a very nice outside area and wi-fi is good. Just a neat, very local establishment. I can't comment on the coffee since I drink tea (which was good). If you are in the area you should check it out.

Start with great coffees and lattes. Add some desserts. Some food too. Maybe some wine in the evening. Maybe some poetry or acoustic music. Hangout, talk, work, hey, it's Java Monkey.

Some spaces are created and some evolve over time. The eclectic mix of old and new at Java Monkey merge both into a comfortable and welcoming space. I highly recommend the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Every component was well done and hearty. This place could become a habit.

We'e been there many times, as I have been in bands that have performed at Java Monkey in the past. Nice place to stop by, groove with the music while enjoying your beverage of choice. We often stop by for coffee after having dinner somewhere else, but the food is good, too.

Hours day you are open at 7, at 7.25 your door is unlocked and all the two employees do is tell at me "we are not open yet". As a small business owner myslef, once I am on property, I am open. I definitely do not turn away customers who are there less than five minutes before posted opening time.

We stopped at the Java Monkey on our way downtown to a conference. Really neat coffee shop/local hangout vibe. We were there in the morning and just had coffee, but the menu had a variety of sandwiches and snacks; and the bar area looked like a fun place to go in the afternoon/evening. Staff was really friendly, and the coffee... More

Charming little coffee house every neighborhood has to have. Great coffee, great desserts and great atmosphere. They also host open mic nights and other live music events but I haven't had the chance to see one just yet.
