Their coffees are a step above all others. Friends that visit from out of town are blown away. Staff is very friendly and takes the extra effort to talk and get to know their customers. This isn't your typical chain coffee shop.

Not only does Java Moose have the BEST coffee around, it has a great team involved in its success. The stellar "customer first" motto is evident in every interaction I have had. They are proud New Brunswickers who give back to their community and have built a solid foundation on being the BEST!

This is a great local small batch coffee roaster that makes very good coffee consistently. Try the Foghorn roast.

We love discovering new coffee shops shops across the world. This one was a big disappointment. Milk was burned and not steamed properly. Also the coffee roast is too blunt and seams to be over done. There is n warmth to eat, just a test of something burned down. We dumped our coffee into first nearby garbage. Also for company... More

I love trying locally roasted coffee everywhere I travel, and usually I try it in the form of a cappuccino. They appear to not have any idea how to properly steam milk, and pour a cappuccino. I'm going to attach a photo of the "cappuccino" I got here, and if you don't know what is wrong with it, Google what... More

A great go-to coffee place in the heart of historic Uptown Saint John, and one of the best destinations in the Old City Market. Service is fast and efficient and the selection is excellent.

They do great things for the community and provide their great coffee to local restaurants as well. I love the unique flavours and don't get me started on the peanut butter mocha !!! Yummy!

Although we are almost 2000 kilometers away we absolutely love the coffee served at Java Moose. We made it a main stop every time we come to Saint John. This time we were served by Amanda who went out of her way to help us get more of our favourite pods in K-cup form (Bay of Fundy blend in case... More

I live in fredericton and buy java moose beans so when I get down to Saint John I always stop by. Friendly service, great spot, and an awesome latte. The iced spiced chai is pretty great also!
