Fresh brewed coffee, great service. Not a whole lot else to write here. Drive through option is awesome with this cold weather.

I have been through Grab A Java more times than I care to count, and the menu items have never disappointed. This isn't a sit down place, which makes it perfect for grabbing a quick cup and moving on to your next adventure in the Springfield area and beyond. My personal favorites are the spiced chai tea latte and mocha... More

I was visiting with friends this weekend. I jokingly refer to myself as a coffee snob. I am probably not a bona fide coffee connoisseur but I do know a good cup of coffee when I taste it. I was delighted to be taken to Grab-a-Java on the way to church to be treated to another cup of coffee and... More

I can't even begin to explain how much I love this place. I live up in Wisconsin, but all of my family lives in Springfield so I try to visit at least a few times a year. My aunt and cousin turned me on to this place back when they only had one location. I have searched far and wide... More

Great coffee drinks made to order by locally owned folks. Lively and colorful art outside. Tasty baked goods available. I have not had the lunch items. I am proud to get coffee here and skip the competing national chain.

The coffee is simply great and don't pass up their breakfast items but you might need to diet after eating them. And, the artwork on the signs changes all the time to reflect current events.

I am a local to Springfield. Grab-a-Java was suggested to me by a co-worker of mine. It's local, cheap and better than Starbucks....Yes, I said better than Strabucks! I have always been a HUGE Starbucks coffee "goer" but I haven't been back since I found Grab-a-Java. It's drive thru only so this is a perfect quick stop before you start... More
