While walking the streets of Beaufort we happened to come upon City Java and News. We got coffee and a coconut water. Wonderful pit stop! Modern feel. Very comfy.

A standard coffee shop, take your laptop and get your work done. Outdoor seating is nice. It's attached to the hotel, which is nice for hotel guests.

Light breakfast and coffee is the way to go here. They have an eat-in area, and beer and wine also. Was located in my hotel (City Loft Hotel) so very convenient!!

Very good coffee, a great choice of teas and non-junky soft drinks, good sandwiches for breakfast although too few veggie choices and tell them NOT to microwave the croissants at high - it turns them to a brick!

My wife and I stayed at the adjacent City Loft Hotel, and came down to this restaurant for breakfast. We had ham sandwiches and coffee, which were both good. I'd eat there again.

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.
