City Java is just one of those "cool" places in Beaufort to have lunch, meet someone for a business meeting, or just get a really nice cup of coffee -from friendly staff. Excellent location also.

Skip Starbucks and go straight to Java City. Great coffee drinks and yummy food. Staff is on the ball and it is so easy to take your drink for the short stroll to the waterfront park.

This has quickly become my favorite coffee spot. Various choices of beverages, sweets in a comfortable, relaxed setting.

Wide selection of coffee with typical coffee house prices. An assortment of baked goods and some sandwiches are also available. I did like the coffee ice cubes in my iced latte. It was a nice touch that didn’t water it down.

Discovered this coffee shop on our first visit to Beaufort a few years ago. Now that we live here it’s still a favorite stop after dinner downtown. Love it!!

I really love the vibe of this place. Excellent lattes served by friendly baristas who quickly got to know me and remembered my preferences. The fresh baked pastries and breakfast sandwiches are fantastic too!

Loved that we can walk right over to a coffee shop from our hotel. Such great coffee, but then to have snacks, homemade sandwiches, muffins, magazines, wine, etc ... it’s a one stop shop!

This is a pretty busy place in the morning. We stayed at City Loft so it was the best place to get a cup of coffee.
