History JavaVine was purchased as a turn-key business on April 4th 2011, when it had previously been operating for 4 years as the Cool Beans Coffee House. The new owners, Wyonna & Quentin (with their now infamous schnauzer Jasper, who can be seen almost daily swimming in the ocean along West Bay Beach), finished a 3 1/2 week renovation in February 2012, and re-opened with a brand new look, an expanded menu, and extended hours to include a cool new Wine Bar & Lounge with light Tapas, in a chill, relaxed environment with soothing tunes. It was at that time the coffee shop became known as JavaVine Cafe & Wine Bar!

Went to JavaVine twice during our stay at Island Pearl. We went once for a light lunch and the second time to escape the beach for a while during the "Boat People" invasion on a particular day. The light lunch consisted of a few tapas that were really good. We had pot stickers, spring rolls, and stuffed mushrooms, but there are a number of other choices as well. During the Boat People take-over, we dashed up the gravel road to JavaVine for some peace. This time we decided to try a pizza and that was also very good and better than the pizza we tried at Bananarama! The husband/wife owners took the time to answer general questions and chat with us a bit about owning a business/living/working on the island and told us the story on how they got to where they are today. They were both very friendly, laid back, easy to talk to and seem to be living the dream! During our lunch visits, we also ran into and had good conversations with Montreal Bob and Chas Watkins. Good times! JavaVine's menu runs the spectrum, just like the name implies, there is an almost an odd mixture and/or combination of items to choose from: Coffee, (plus tea, espresso, cappuccino, lattes, etc.), smoothies, beer, wine, mixed drinks, bakery items (the cinnamon rolls looked really good!), breakfast items, pizza, sandwiches, wraps, tapas...just about anything! JavaVine blends together many different food/drink choices but it absolutely works! I guess the owners vision is about giving credence to incoherence - that's cool with me! On the surface it doesn't sound like it would work, sort of like pairing dark chocolate with Parmesan cheese! It makes you think for as minute but just like JavaVine, you should try it, because once you do, you'll be hooked! (*Here's my pitch to the owners: consider offering a Grilled Chocolate and Parmesan Cheese sandwich. Why not?! People can eat a Turkey or Ham sandwich/wrap anytime. Just like the other hip aspects of your restaurant, why not give people one more positive quirky/fun thing to remember you by??) Overall, the whole experience at JavaVine was impressive! We can't wait to visit them again!

Place has nice sandwiches, with moderate prices, cold beer ( of course ) within walking distance of hotels on beach. Located in a small plaza with a few other stores.

It's a perfect place to go cool off and have some great food! It's such a fun, classy and cozy cafe. Kind of upscale but not stuffy at all. I loved this place!! I had pizza, turkey sandwich, bagel and cream cheese. Not all at the same time of course! Great Carmel mocha & excellent wine!!

We stopped in here on a cruise ship day to get away from the crowds on the beach and at the recommendation of others. The pizza was delicious and there wine menu is extensive.
