We came here for breakfast, and had a great experience all the way around. From the ocean views, to the friendly service and the amazing food. Will definitely be coming back.

“great food great service”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I go to Lava Java around twice a week. Last week when I went Danielle halped me. She is an amazing hostest. She gave us the best service with a smile, knows me by name and when we were leaving thanked us for coming with the bigest smile and a hug. Food was great but the service was amazing. I would ask for her if you are planning on going. Thumbs up all the way :)

“Good Food and Flexible”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

My wife and I ate dinner here last week. The one thing I really like about this restaurant is they are willing to work with you to make custom meals. My wife is a vegetarian so they were able to alter a couple dishes to suit her needs. The food is fresh and tasty. Only reason why this restaurant did not get 5 stars is because the service was a little slow. Also, this is a BYOB restaurant so grab some beers or a bottle of wine to take with you to lunch or dinner.
