The barista either did not know how or was not willing to make a smaller version of the espresso, even when my husband tried to explain to her how she could do it.To our surprise the chocolate company down the street had WAY better coffee and a barista that was willing to do the smaller version and it was great!

Visited this coffee shop on Saturday during the annual fall festival but the line was long and we did not have time to wait. Soooooo, we went back the next morning and had wonderful coffee drinks!

Good coffee (cold brewed, regular, iced, etc) at a good price. Nice pie slices and cookies to accompany. Great atmosphere and "with it" staff, otherwise known as the "counter-intelligence".

What an excellent coffee shop! I stumbled upon it doing the Twain tourist trip. Started the day here for coffee and breakfast and was so impressed I returned for lunch later in the day. Nice vibe, great service, excellent coffee and food and Wifi is strong as an ox. Come here!

We loved everything about our visit. Adorable decorations, vintage tables and chairs, beautiful wooden bar, and a huge seating area in the next room over. Our food was delicious and it was a relief to find good vegetarian options. Wished we had more time to browse the pottery and gifts for sale.

This was my stop on my way into the office i was working at for a while. The staff was so friendly and they had great homemade food as well as delicious breakfast sandwiches. I would recommend stopping in here.

Caring people serving great coffee and tea. The food is so teastful, not to hipster. The wifi is very fast for a small town. Worth the deviation from highway 61.

We went to Java Jive twice while in Hannibal. The sandwiches are delicious and they do not skimp on meats. I also had the fruit parfait which was just wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want a good sandwich, salad or soup.
