Nicely flavoursome espeesso based coffee, a small seating area and free good strength wifi make this a worthwhile stop in the historic city market.

Thanks for the kind review. Our Market location is looked after by Kim and her stellar staff! They do a wonderful job. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Over the next few months, this location will be going through a major reno. We hope to serve you better on your next visit. The wifi will still be great! Our food & beverage selection will be greater! And the COFFEE! Wow! Just wait and see!

“Java Moose Coffee Stays on my mind and on my taste buds!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

M-m-m-m-m! If you are a coffee lover and visiting St. John Canada, head directly to Java Moose in the St. John Market. Authentic coffee taste without the pretentiousness of US chains. Great service - they don't take MasterCard or AMEX - only VISA or cash - so I had to wait for a friend with some cash - but trusting help told me to sit down and enjoy the brew and coffee cake until my friend's arrived to pay. Worth the trip! I am jonesing now that I did not buy more Bay of Fundy Blend!!

“Great coffee and free wifi”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I have visited St John twice while on a cruise and both times I have visited Java Moose. I love the coffee and having access to free wifi is always an added bonus. The people who work here are always nice to the tourist and it was great to see the same faces there both times I visited (Over a span of a year and a half). It shows they enjoy their job as much as the customers enjoy the coffee. When I make it back up that direction, I will be stopping in again.

Saint John is a pretty neat place. Glad we're here and glad you were here too! Our staff has a great respect for the great number of travellers visiting the city. We really try to please and try to offer the very best fresh roasted coffee beverages in the province. It's nice to be local and proud of it! Thanks for the awesome comments.

“Canadian coffee”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Visited St. John for the day on a cruise and our guide mentioned Java Moose....went to the stand in the market - can thoroughly recommend the coffee - when we came back on a cruise last year I made a point of returning and the coffee once again did not disappoint. If there is a queue it is worth the wait!

Wow! Our location in the Saint John City Market is one of our oldest and looked after by our best! Very happy you enjoyed your coffee and your Saint John experience. We do endeavour to roast and brew the highest quality Arabica coffees. We roast in Saint John using 2 small batch Diedrich Roasters. We know it's fresh and you know it's worth the line-up. We look forward to your next visit!

Very good dark roast coffee and enjoyed the oatcakes. We hit the location in the Market and it had additional seating to watch people shopping for fresh vegetables and fish..

Glad you were able to visit our cafe in the Saint John City Market-the oldest market in Canada. All our staff certainly appreciates your comments about the dark roast and the oatcakes. We call our dark roast Foghorn! We roast the beans right here in the city....and this blend is really, absolutely, amazingly dark. Happy you enjoyed your experience. As a small roaster, we strive to roast and blend the very best. Thanks!
