Also really great with our (elementary school age) kids. Definitely worth a stop - we were passing through on our way home from vacation.

Java Jacks is an awesome little café in the heart of Tappahannock. It's a welcome relief from the usual eating establishments. Great food, friendly service and even have cloth tablecloths!

I've eaten here several times over and have never had a meal I didn't like - including the crab quiche when I'm not really a quiche lover (something I chose the first time I ate here); have also enjoyed their fried oysters, which I'm picky about considering I love my mother's recipe. I actually crave going to Java Jacks -... More

What a great atmosphere, full of antiques! Comfortable and warm. Staff go out of their way to make patrons feel welcome. Full and varied breakfast menu with local favorites like crab and grits. Coffee is strong and delicious. Platters are large and well-prepared with fresh ingredients.

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.

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
