What a perfect location for a quaint coffee spot! The girl who worked on a Saturday morning was a delight! So sweet and accommodating. Love this place

I really love the vibe of this place. Excellent lattes served by friendly baristas who quickly got to know me and remembered my preferences. The fresh baked pastries and breakfast sandwiches are fantastic too!

This is a pretty busy place in the morning. We stayed at City Loft so it was the best place to get a cup of coffee.

Adjacent to our hotel, served the best AM Lattes. Nice variety of coffees and teas. Plan for a little wait as only one person on duty.

City Java's food and coffee rivals that of higher priced counterparts in major metropolitan areas. Major bonus points: coffee ice cubes for my iced latte!

Love the smoothies here. Not sure about the food as I have never ate anything from here. But go for the smoothies alone as its worth it.
