After reading the reviews my wife and I wanted to stop in. She was a little hesitant at first because a coffee shop in a hotel doesn't seem like a place we'd normally visit. I ordered a drip coffee and she had a latte. The coffee was good but didn't "wow" us. The pastries were really good. We purchased a... More

We stayed at the motel on the property which provided us with a gift card to your coffee shop. We very much enjoyed our morning coffee from City Java!

I came every morning I was in town for tea & my husband had the coffee. It was convenient to the cottage we rented. The staff was helpful & nice. Tried the breakfast capresse sandwich & it was good. Enjoy.

Great coffee selections and a view of the waterway make this a great place to grab a hot (or cold) beverage! Walk out the door to swings along the bay.

I stopped in a few weeks ago. Table near window was dirty so we decided to take out our coffee. Checked out the baked goods and was disappointed in selection. Just wish they would upgrade their coffee....you can get La Colombe coffee at Common Ground. They could at least offer Intelligentsia or something similar here if they really wanted to... More

Best customer service of any coffee shop in Beaufort. The Barista engages all customers in friendly conversation. The coffee is delish!
