“Cozy spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Had a fantastic latte here with a smiling and engaging server. They have yummy Nanaimo bars here too (must try if you are not familiar...sweet though). Scone was on the dry side. Open Sunday which not much is in MJ!

We stopped here after the tunnels tour. Wicked lunch. Had the curry wrap and bagel pizzas. So good!! Very homemade.

“Cozy and authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
