“Java's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

I love getting breakfast from here but..... One the service SUCKS !!!!!!!! I shouldn't have to wait 5 minutes in line just because you want to serve your buddies before you serve someone who was waiting way before them. Usually i wouldn't complain about something so trivial but really this has been happening 2 weeks in a row and only when they notice me getting frustrated do they finally asked me have i been helped. Most of them seem to stand around and have personal conversations. They need to sit their employees down and really have a talk about good customer service. Not to mention i got a ice cold coffee today. Like really how long does coffee sit their that its that cold. I nearly barfed. If it wasn't for the great breakfast choices i would not go here at all.

“Have a cuppa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Sit outside on a summer day and people watch. You are right next to the Eastman Theater. It's so charming. The sandwiches are terrific and so is the coffee. We go often. It's special!

“favorite stop on weekends in Rochester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Our favorite spot to frequent when in town visiting my brother at college. This place is coffee stop you dreamed about visiting when you watched Friends at Central Perk. Favorite pick is the chocolate sitch. Love the selection of cookies, scones and baked treats as well!

“Great Coffee and Tea. Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

The coffee selections are great and the location puts you right next to the Eastman Music Institute. The coffee shop is a good size offering seats in the window, bench style seating, and single tables. I met wonderful people who were friendly and even from my home town. The tea and Coffee are in a room off to your right where you self service the kinds that you like in order to take home with you and the prices are on the shelves and drawers. The cookies are great too. They have one that is made from coconut and corn flakes. It was delicious. The sad part is that the sandwich area closes at 3pm

“Great place to meet for coffee, good pastries...coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

I've visited Java's a number of times, and I've always found a seat, and though crowded oft times, it is surprisingly private.
The coffee is as good as a Starbucks, IMHO, and they have a varying selection of goodies for food...I like morning time, a nice fresh pastry and a large cup. The tab this last week was $4.50 for the two. Good deal!

Easy to go the website. It's a fun place.
