Expanded seating and menu make for the best place to get an interesting sandwich or salad in the historic section of Hannibal,

Couches and chairs and family-friendly area for kids; a nice place for a rest after a long hot afternoon in the sun. Food is OK, beverages good. I love the piano (got an ovation!).

Stopped in here for a quick lunch and ended up staying awhile just to relax and talk. This coffee shop was doing an awesome job making and serving iced coffees and freshly blended milkshakes on a very hot day. The staff was very friendly and service was good. They have a varied menu for breakfast and lunch. We "built our... More

Stopped here on the way to Kansas City. Had the Breve coffee. Excellent, and I love coffee. Also ordered the hummus wrap. The ingredients were fresh and plentiful. Has bit of a quirky vibe to the place. Something I would not have expected in Hannibal MO. Would visit again if in the area.

We stopped here for lunch after our tour at Rockcliff mansion. It was a great spot for a light lunch before our cave tour. We had a few items from the menu, the best one was the special salad they were featuring. The drinks were wonderful and the desserts looked great, although we didn't try them. The decor was very...

Spent two nights in Hannibal and this is where we started our days. Good coffee, pastries, and muffins. Got there early and listened to the piano player. Nice and relaxing.

With a perfect central location, informal atmosphere, good food, and great coffee, we used this as our meeting place and local hang out during our recently Hannibal family reunion. I definitely recommend it, plus you can buy the great pottery!

We were recommended by a local to have lunch here. Salads are large mixed greens, but I had a sandwich that included no sides and no pickle, just the sandwich. I purchased an ice tea and just the sandwich and it was almost $10.00. This is a little to pricey for a sandwich that I could have made for my... More

Java Jive is the real heart of Hannibal. You could easily start your day with a latte and pastry, serve you a great sandwich, soup/salad & ice tea for lunch and see you back at the end of the day for an ice cream cone. This has been the most consistent service establishment in Hannibal in the 3 years I've... More

There is always something happening down at Java Jive. In the morning, you can join in on a heated political debate with the Royal Academy of Gentlemen sitting outside, cozy up on a gently used sofa with one of the daily papers or recent magazine, and catch up on e-mail and business with our free wi-fi.
Our coffee selection features coffees from all around the world in a variety of flavors and roasts, sure to suit any taste. We take pride in using a local roaster, Chauvin Coffee, a family owned business now in its fourth generation of roast masters.
Java Jive also offers a wonderful selection of fresh baked goods and deli items each day. We pride ourselves in having bakers and chefs that work tirelessly to create new and interesting soups, salads and desserts.
