Happened upon this spot and glad I did. There was a line but it moved quickly and food came fast. Great veggie breakfast burrito and husband had the ham and egg panini - delicious! Couldn’t resist a coconut muffin - more like a cupcake but...More

Food was great! Coffee was very good. The staff were absolutely delightful. It's a small place so not good for a big group unless you're getting food to go. Lots of food & drink choices.

I almost feel bad giving Java Kai a strong review. You can tell this place used to be a local joint that is being taken over by tourists. The workers were all super friendly, and the coffee and food were great. Just a great vibe...More
