“Line up for a cup”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Java is a popular coffee shop for locals and tourists alike, but I'm not sure of the allure. The service is slow, the atmosphere is kind of grungy (old, mismatched furniture in a tired little house) and there is little space to sit that isn't on top of the person next to you. The "Bowl of Soul" is the catch drink here -- a very sweet mix of Mexican hot chocolate and coffee. Great for those who like coffee with their sugar. You will see people. You will get a decent cup of coffee and the food is pretty good. Just plan to wait a bit and hope for a seat. Also, there is free Wi-Fi, which is a nice plus.

“Great breakfast stop”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Java is very comfortable and cozy with two rooms and a fireplace and is a great place to go on a stormy day. Try the huevos rancheros. Very friendly service.
