Enjoyed the coffee and it is located on Main street so easy access. Very busy place with not much staff so expect to wait. Cash or local checks only, so be aware.

We stopped in Fairplay on a Monday after a late viewing of the aspens (like about a week late - most of the leaves were down). Wow, almost every restaurant in town was closed! Evidently, weekends are the big volume days in Fairplay, so Monday is their siesta day. My wife and I each had a BLAT sandwich (the A... More

Not many choices in FairPlay, but really friendly staff and a wide selection of sandwiches makes Java Moose a winner. You're a tourist so any restaurant will get you on price. Go have a sandwich!

All good, I had the iced coffee every day and it was stout and tasty. The ladies serving are great as well, friendly and sweet on the eyes.

I stop by here once a year or so. The food is always good. Once in a while they might run out of a particular item, which to me is always better than having old stuff piling up in the kitchen. Anyway, I have never been disappointed in the food, promptness or hospitality.

Yum and filling. The green chili smothered makes it even better. My kiddos love the fresh baked good and flavored steamed milk. Great place to meet friends for coffee or to pick up goodies before work or on the way skiing.

While a bit on the petite side, and possessed of only a single bathroom, the Java Moose makes up in value and flavor what it lacks in square footage. Try the berry bars, or the breakfast burrito, and whichever kind of coffee you drink (or chai or tea), this is the place to enjoy it to the fullest potential flavor.... More

We had an early morning departure from Crested Butte en route to the Springs. We stopped at Java Moose for two skinny lattes. Fast, cheap and delicious. 'Nuff said! Thank you~ oh, we had a bite of the blueberry crumble samples at the counter. They were awesome. CASH only.
