This is a very unique eatery. The wait staff were very friendly, the food was yummy and choices were many. Stopped for breakfast - eggs were fine, when you ask for medium - you get medium, not runny. All the food was yummy.

We were passing through on our way home and stumbled across Java Jacks! What a wonderful find! The art on the walls and the antiques were all for sale and interesting to look at while waiting for our food to arrive. The layout of the restaurant with the different rooms was unique. Great service and amazing food! I had the... More

The food is excellent, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere is terrific thanks to the wonderful, charming people who work there! Kendall, Emily, and everyone else associated with this fine eatery, deserves a special thank you for providing their customers with a consistent, pleasurable dining experience day-in and day-out. Can't say enough positive things about them, or this outstanding hidden... More

This cafe is rated first among restaurants for Tappahannock and certainly deserves the rating. Java Jacks is a charming cafe furnished with "shabby chic" collectibles. According to our server, if you like something, just ask because everything is for sale. We chose a table outside as it was early morning and may have chosen to go inside if it had... More

The food is very good and so is the atmosphere. I am highly recommending that you will love this restaurant. If you... More

Really cool place. The house has a nice ambiance. Friendly staff. I'd never had an oyster salad before. Nice greens with huge fried oysters atop. Really good. Good coffee too. They have way more than just coffee. I recommend for breakfast or lunch.

A quaint Building has been turned into a charming restaurant. Food is cooked from scratch. Owner-operated. Inside and patio dining. By far the best breakfast place in Tappahannock.

Situated immediately adjacent to the Main Street in the town, the building is an old non-descript one story house. However, awaiting you inside is a great palette of home cooked food, and wonderful ladies who took great care of us. Our family of four had the portobello burger, crab cake sandwich, hamburger, and cheese quesadilla. Everything was delicious, then we... More
