“What a dump”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Looks like it may have been a cute coffee shop at one point but now it seems to be a dive bar.

Definitely not worth the 1 hour drive from Seattle.

Needs to be removed from roadside America places to see.

“Roadside America LIVES via Bob's Java Jive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Ok, this roadside America attraction took all but 2 minutes to snap pictures of but over an hour to get to through Seattle traffic. Still? You just GOTTA do these things because HOKEY things like this off the beaten path is what makes us Americans unique!

Bob's appears to be more along the lines of a dive bar now that offers karaoke but the coffee pot shape of the building still makes it one of those things you gotta see!
