My Favorite Spot in Town

I am not a coffee drinker, but I love tea, especially chai. Javateas makes the best chai in Ephrata. They also offer other great specialty drinks and have a great food menu with lots of healthy choices. The dining area is long and narrow but has a nice ambiance. Service is good, although I... read more

Great little café! I met with a friend and we were excited to see all the pastries to choose from!! I'm not a big coffee drinker, so I can't speak into that, but it's busy so it must be good! We were there for an hour and there was not a time when there wasn't someone in ordering something! I... More

As any coffee shop worth its beans, Javateas isn't a very large place and everything is made to order. Although I'm a bit biased as a local, I absolutely love this place. It's not the cheapest, but I'm a believer in that you get what you pay for. They have something to fit everyone's needs. It's a must stop for... More

Yes you can't go here in a hurry. The food is made to order great salads and sandwiches with a healthy flair. There is a comfortable area to sit and enjoy time with friends. Several tables and take out as well. Slow down and stop in! Great bake goods and coffees as well!

I come back here because of the atmosphere. It is a very laid-back place that exudes the concept of taking your time there and relaxing. For those who want to get in and out, Burger King is across the street. I would say that the average number of people working behind the counter when I have been there is about... More

Stopped in this afternoon with my mother for a warm cup of coffee and pastry. One girl at the counter. The wait was unbelievable. Trying to show my mother I have patience, I waited and waited and waited. Felt so sorry for the one girl behind the counter. The coffee in the thermos containers was cold. Some were completely empty.... More

Great place to meet a friend to talk and catch up on life events. They have nice sandwiches, salads, and coffee drinks or tea. It is also a place to just have a coffee and pastry. It is small so at the busy lunch hour you might have to wait a bit to be seated. They also have special music... More

Coffee is good but food is mediocre. Ordered a pastry with my coffee and it was not fresh. Staff is not over friendly.
