Loved this place. My mother, sister, and I visited here passing through town. We all had sandwiches and chips and the sandwiches were fresh and delicious! I had a coffee and it was yummy also. Very much recommended.

This was a great lunch stop downtown. The food was good and the atmosphere was great. There was so much character in this place. The dessert was equally as good as the lunch.

There is always something happening down at Java Jive. In the morning, you can join in on a heated political debate with the Royal Academy of Gentlemen sitting outside, cozy up on a gently used sofa with one of the daily papers or recent magazine, and catch up on e-mail and business with our free wi-fi. Our coffee selection features coffees from all around the world in a variety of flavors and roasts, sure to suit any taste. We take pride in using a local roaster, Chauvin Coffee, a family owned business now in its fourth generation of roast masters. Java Jive also offers a wonderful selection of fresh baked goods and deli items each day. We pride ourselves in having bakers and chefs that work tirelessly to create new and interesting soups, salads and desserts.
