Its a bit different. Comfortable, relaxed, and a pleasant place to sit, talk, catch up on e-mail or just watch golks go by. Even though it is in my own little town and is a common stop, it is my favorite coffee shop of the many i have visited in my travels.

This was a great place for coffee and frozen drinks! I'd suggest they replace or clean their couches and furniture. Other than that,was alright.

We remembered this place from our family visit years ago, and it didn't disappoint this trip! Delicious coffee, tea, and sandwiches/pastries. Great local spot that was very comfortable and welcoming....a must stop while in town!

Quality food, wonderful atmosphere, will go back. Coffee was about average. You probably won't pig out here on food. Kids menu items are expensive for what you get. T-Mobile coverage sucks in that area. Java Jive WiFi was 20 Mbps when I used it. Need more restrooms.

Coffee was delicious and they brought out the heavy cream for me to use too. Prices were very reasonable. Definitely will return when I'm back in the area. Also, nice comfortable sitting area along with various card/gift items for purchase. Cards were unique and humorous. :)

Delicious! The aroma is Devine and selection is huge. They have a funny 'adult' gift area, funny stuff! The staff was very friendly and made the atmosphere very uplifting.

The coffee was great, the staff were pleasant, the shop was quaint and very comfortable. What more do you want in a coffee shop? Definitely a great place to grab a cup to go or to hang out with groups large or small.

Thank Sandy G

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.
