Delicious. Coffee was how it should be. Caramel shortcake had generous layers of chocolate and caramel. My son said the strawberries dipped in the chocolate fountain were delicious. Our teenagers enjoyed the quiz game on the table. Highly recommend

We always come here when we are in Keswick as the coffee and cakes are so good!! It's dog friendly too which is a plus!! My husband and I and our 2 children plus dog popped in today for refreshments after a hike up Latrigg and enjoyed the usual excellent coffee and cake plus a delicious smoothie and milkshakes. The...

Went here after reading good reviews. Couldn't get a table first time so went for a walk around Keswick and came back. Ordered a panini, two coffees and two cakes. Food was delicious and cappuccino really good. Staff were very lovely and accommodating. Would definitely go again.

This is a welcoming local coffee shop to make a change from Costa and Starbucks. Friendly service, coffee and some interesting seasonal drinks and a good selection of cakes and snacks.

On our many visits to Keswick, we've often called in to Java to get a couple of pieces of cake to take away but we've never actually sat in, until now. The place itself is quite small but the seating arrangement upstairs is good in that you don't feel as though you are sitting on top of the people next... More

Lovely quirky cafe. Average food and coffee. We sat upstairs which was quite small when a lady walked in with two very large smelly dogs. We were in the middle of our food when one of the dogs vomited right in front of us!!! My daughter in law who is 5 months pregnant immediately had to go down stairs with... More

Went into the cafe originally as was intrigued by the massive chocolate fountain in the window. That was five or so years ago and still make a point of coming here each time I visit Keswick. Their hot chocolate is simply the best around and some of the best I've had anywhere. It really doesn't harm that they pour fresh... More

Java does the best hot chocolate for miles around, using real chocolate from the fountain with a variety of flavours as well. Staff always helpful and small comfy seating upstairs , a must whilst in keswick if you like chocolate or hog chocolate or coffee shops !

An independent quirky coffee shop. Specializing in Coffee and Cakes.. It is also dog friendly. We have outside seating situated in the market square for those warm sunny days.. We also have upstairs seating with large comfy sofas perfect for those cold winter days.. We have a 4 tier chocolate fountain perfect for a little treat or even to keep the kids occupied while you sit back and relax with a perfect cup of coffee... Need we say more!!
