Midwest Living Review
Coffeehouses come in all shapes and sizes, but it's hard to beat the ones that are tucked into old homes—you know, the ones with heavy oak front doors and fireplaces topped with ornately carved mantles. That's Java House. The place is homey because of touches like warm terra-cotta and mustard walls and an antique cabinet used to set out the cream and sugar. It makes you feel like, well, sitting down and having a cup of coffee.The coffee comes from beans roasted in-store no more than three days before you're enjoying your cup. Beans are from great coffee hotspots like Mexico, Ethiopia, Sumatra and Brazil. In addition to regular coffee, Java House offers the typical specialty drinks like lattes, macchiatos and mochas plus tea, smoothies and iced drinks. A smattering of baked goods is available, plus quiche, oatmeal and soup, but no sandwiches. So grab your cup and sit at one of the worn wooden tables lining the wall or in the small back room, which features a few tables and a long bench. Read one of the papers scattered about, or use the free Wi-Fi. And enjoy!
