“Well Almost Two Years Later...and”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I reviewed this charming little coffee spot almost two years ago and likely have patronized again more than 100 times since then so it's well time for another review. I walk the Nanaimo Sea Wall and Inner Harbor often. The Javawocky is perfectly placed to enjoy a quality coffee, tea or light lunch. The staff is stable filled with wonderful folk that serve with a smile. I honestly love these purveyors of quality bean and leaf and an unsurpassed spot to watch the world pass by. It's nice to say that some things do not change in this world and their dedication and customer focuses is one.. To the owner and all staff.....Thanks and Cheers

“Can't go wrong here”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

If you are walking along the harbour front, stop in pick up your coffee here. Warm friendly service and terrifuc views. The coffee is great and the edibles were yummy. You can stay inside their shop or take it with you. It was a lovely find and beats the national chains hands down.

“We love it!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Whenever we are walking the Nanaimo harbourfront, we try to stop into Javawocky Coffee House for coffee & either a snack or a sandwich. Sandwiches are wonderful - made with fresh baked honey grain bread & the fillings come from local merchants. We usually share a sandwich which is plenty for us, and also share a scone or some sort of sweet. That and coffee, and we are on our way. Staff are very friendly, and if it is a nice day - sitting outside is the best. Give it a try - I'm sure you'll love it..
