We stopped at Java Jive for a quick break during an evening walk around downtown Hannibal. The staff were friendly and upbeat, and the coffee shop has a relaxed atmosphere. Brewed coffee and water are self-serve. Very good cookies and brownies.

We stopped at Java Jive 5 times in three days. Terrific oasis from the July 2013 heat. Tasty fresh made salads, sandwiches, soups, teas, coffees and baked goodies. Very laid-back atmosphere with your choice of tables or sofas for lounging and utilizing the free Wi-Fi.

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.
