Lovely pastries, fair prices for an airport, staff extremely friendly. Also want to point out how clean the actual airport is! I have never seen so many people constantly cleaning, right down to the railings and skirting boards!

While on wait at the airport for 3 hours, stopped for a soft drink and pastry. Hard to find a table. Prices are typical airport prices but they have a captive audience. Pastry was very good. Now what they need is more bathrooms near Java House.

Stopped at Java at JKIA before my flight back to SA.. Food was good.. It is a bit expensive though.. Two burgers and chips with drinks cost over R300 .. But best coffee in town...
