Location of this coffee shop is great with a laid back atmosphere. However, the service and the flow of ordering, is slow and confusing,

We both had the chicken salad on a large Croissant, loaded with grapes, nuts and cranberries. Delicious. My friend had the cappuccino and it was very good. You have to place your own order but they bring you the food.

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.
