“Cozy and authentic”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

From the outside, Java Express doesn't look that big, but upon entering the space is expansive with very high ceilings, large windows and lots of comfortable seating options.

I had a medium cappuccino and a chicken sandwich - took a window seat and enjoyed the view.
The coffee was excellent (perfect roast for my liking) and the lunch was tasty.

The only thing to improve - there is an outdoor seating area to the right of the coffee shop, but it looks a little forlorn and sparse. If they spruced that area up a bit I think It would make the place much more inviting from the street.

“Personal Service”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Loved the comfy couches, loved the tranquility. Good coffee and I had very nice Biscotti. On another occasion a salad. Salad was particularly fresh and unique - a delightful experience in all. If you are not up for the tunnels, this is a great place to wait for the rest.

“A little overpriced...”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Java is OK. I like working in there because it is always quiet. Staff is young and friendly. The live music they bring in is generally good. Drinks are overpriced though - I prefer Coffee Encounters down the street.

“Quaint little spot”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

We really enjoyed stopping into this little café for a quick cup of joe. They had some tasty sounding selections of sandwiches and lunch fair (quite a few vegetarian choices) and a few dessert items- nothing fancy. My London fog was awesome, but my sisters Americano was too strong. However, the best part about the place is the relaxed atmosphere, with lots of couches and armchairs. They also have a cute little boutique upstairs (The Wandering Gypsy) that is definitely worth browsing through.
