My husband and I love this coffee shop! We will go here for nightly coffee runs before hitting up a movie or just to simply have a small date night with coffee. Really good atmosphere to be around and sweet customer service.

My son and I were visiting Hannibal, MO and stopped into Java Jive. We drove down from the western suburbs of Chicago. We ordered hot chocolate and also had some ice cream.

Stopped in mid afternoon for something to drink and a snack. No diet Pepsi or Coke carried, but it is a coffee shop. I ordered the blondie and it was very stale.

My husband and I always try to get over to Java Jive whenever we're anywhere in the immediate area because it's just that good! Cozy atmosphere with super fresh food, i.e., sandwiches, salads and soups. Love them all, haven't had anything that we didn't just enjoy. They have the magic touch. We got a sandwich to go because we were... More

Grab a great muffin and select from an assortment of coffees or other drinks like hot chocolate. Curl up in a comfy seat or share a conversation with a local. Classic place.

Stopped in here when we first got to town for a bite to eat. It's a great introduction to Hannibal! Delicious pastries/goodies and a wide selection of hot drinks. Great atmosphere with mismatched chairs and local art. Wanted to stop in a second time in one day.

I met friends here. None of us had ever been to JJ, and we all loved the food! The service was excellent and fast! The prices are very reasonable. There are a few tables outside so you can sit and chat and watch passers by. We plan to return to JJ every time we're in Hannibal!

Very nice and approriate coffee shop for the area in the main historic district. The deserts were just average but good, I had a sandwhich and it was good. Also had a double expresso and it was excellent. Overall this is a good place that's worth a try

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.
