I stopped in a few weeks ago. Table near window was dirty so we decided to take out our coffee. Checked out the baked goods and was disappointed in selection.

Best customer service of any coffee shop in Beaufort. The Barista engages all customers in friendly conversation. The coffee is delish!

Good spot for a quick cup of coffee or latte and plentiful choices for a quick breakfast. It's small inside but There are tables to sit and enjoy your morning cup of joe.

Dropped in for a coffee. Wow ! Great menu, friendly staff and coffee ice cubes to keep your iced latte cool. Couldn't ask for more - highly recommend- nice area to sit and enjoy your paper or just some AC.

I stop by City Java every Friday morning on my way to Art Class! I'm addicted to their frozen moccachino drinks. Have been doing this for several years now! Workers are friendly; drinks are great!

By far the best coffee in Beaufort. While their prices are comparable to other coffee shops in the area, you get more for your money. When you get a frozen coffee they put real espresso in it at no extra charge. Their 12 oz espresso drinks come with 2 shots of espresso (at competitors you only get 1) and their... More
