Java Madness is my go to spot if I want a quick bite to eat for breakfast. I also go to pick up sandwiches if I'm planning on going kayaking. I enjoy getting a coffee and a breakfast sandwich and sitting in the back corner of cafe or out on the deck overlooking the marina.

The coffee choices are too many for a simple cup of coffee....however, if you like lots of hip drinks, this is your place. I got an iced coffee, it was very good and they did it just like I wanted it with no issues. Prices are a bit high if you just want a coffee and not fanciness. :o) I'd... More

Good sandwiches, informal atmosphere, and nice location. The service was good and there was even musicians setting up for the afternoon.

Asked for 2 bagels with a lot of butter...... More

My friends and I found this place by accident. their coffee was amazing, the green tea to die for. The cookies were fresh, soft and delicious. If you are in that area give it a try.

This neat title coffee shop has great live music and a millions dollar oceanfront view. It is the good stuff of life here. Yes, as other reviewers have said, service is slow. I kind of like it. I love going there and seeing smiling staff, patient people taking my kid's orders, knowing that there is a guarantee of good coffee... More

This little coffee shop has a million dollar view! The food is yummy and the coffee is the best around. Don't take it to go...stay and enjoy the seaside view on the spacious outdoor deck

Came here on a Sunday for mid-morning coffee. Suffuce it to say that the espresso was ghastly, scalded and full of grounds so v'bitter. Peppermint tea v'poor quality. Pastries no better than Stopnshop. So, nothing here to tempt me back or recommend.

The good coffee and location is ruined by the painfully slow service. I make the mistake of going back in there once in awhile- thinking that for sure they must have replaced the help by now. It seems that management has never thought to mention to their employees that perhaps the people in that long line actually would rather be... More

went for just a special coffee and a fresh piece of breakfast pastry...now I am a regular. The place smells delicious, everything is fresh and the help is so accommodating. Nice place to go for a coffee and bagel and sit out on the deck...enjoy!
