I ordered a macchiato and started to look around. This little place should be located in Portland:) It has a great atmosphere and for those with ADD, this is your home. My macchiato was a bit over steamed. I give the pull a 7.5. The roast is a bit darker than I appreciate. Please adjust your steamer.

Great fresh coffee! Owner is one of the baristas and made us some amazing coffee. Some interesting speciality coffees on the menu we will try next time we are in town, like the Sweet Jane...caramel and coffee combo looked yummy. The winning surprise for me was the gluten free blueberry muffin. They are homemade, normal size muffins, but they have... More

Excellent coffee and welcome, lovely people and vibe - cool tees too! Thanks again for a proper coffee! This place is the best for a good, European style coffee in Memphis, that we found - and God knows we tried!

The place is nice, cozy and comfortable. The type of place I'd go for some quiet time to read and have a cup of tea.

A fun eclectic coffee house that's the cure for corporate coffee chains. The furniture and decor is colorful yet fitting. Warm and friendly service. A must-see in Memphis.

Just looking around the shop was enough entertainment for my husband and me. From a cute vinyl record and book collection to posters of upcoming local concerts, this place is fun and completely connected to the cool community it resides in. I got the funky monkey latte and was not disappointed. It had great flavor without being overly sweet, and... More

I dropped in here to get a latte. The only weird thing was that they didn't have skim milk, just 2% and almond milk. I don't know if they were out at the time or if that is a regular thing. The coffee was good and reasonably priced.

Java Cabana is cute and has a creative menu with excellent pastries. However, the coffee they use is sold at Kroger (bummer) and the owner never seems friendly.

Thank you for your review. It's true the coffee we use is also sold in the local grocery stores, as Ugly Mug Coffee is a local company. They try to reach as many consumers as possible. We sell their coffee because we believe in supporting local and, well, because it's darn good coffee and fair trade. More

Java Cabana is the best coffee shop in Memphis. The place is unique and welcoming and the coffee and shakes are SO good!

Java Cabana is one of the most unique and eclectic places in Memphis. It's a good place for people who just want to chill and hang out while also engaging in conversation with regulars and midtown locals. The atmosphere is always very inviting because of the very friendly and personable baristas. There's always live music every week to check out... More
