I have bought Bowls of Soul over the past 25+ years. Excellent drink--be sure to order in ceramic mug. I just wish they would work on the acoustics in the Ketchum site. It gets too loud for some of us with "older ears."

Been coming to Java for 20 years! Every year we return to Sun Valley we can't wait for our Bowl of Soul and confetti eggs! Needs no explanation!! Go for a delicious breakfast and the best coffee!

This place rocks. They have been in business for years and the Bowl of Soul is so very tasty. I had breakfast twice on a recent trip and the food arrives quickly and is thoughtfully prepared. You know you are in the right place when you see all the locals there.

Visiting family and we were very happy that we were taken here for a "bowl of soul". I can usually pass up a cup of hot chocolate but this WAS NOT just a cup of hot chocolate it was a bowl of yumminess. All I can say is WOW...it's a must try. I'm hooked.

Great coffee (one of the few places I have found that have almond milk and coconut milk), friendly people and yummie muffins and more!

We come to Java every time we're in Sun Valley. It's a throwback to the 60's with great music and the best coffee/Mexican hot chocolate imaginable. LOVE THIS PLACE!!

This beloved little Skyside town holds a jewel of a coffee shop! It is definitely not your typical mainstream coffee. Their coffee and looseleaf tea is certified fair trade and instead of your usual Ghirardelli chocolate or Hersheys they specialize in Mexican chocolate to blend with their drinks. This unique streak of artistry keeps this place fresh and forward. Some... More

With 2 locations in Ketchum and Hailey, Java is the quintessential coffee community destination. Cozy, friendly, home baked goodies, great coffee and their famous coffee drink....the Bowl of Soul. Try it, you'll love it. Get a coffee on the run to go or come in and spend some relaxing time by yourself or with friends.

The bakery items were phenomenal and breakfast was very tasty and filling. It was a longer walk than to Starbucks but well worth it.

We went in here a couple of mornings. One morning was rainy and cold and it was definitely the place to be to get out of it all. It was very busy and I can see why. Great coffee and then some! I ordered my first Bowl of Soul. All I can say is WOOOOW!!! I had heard other people... More
