Enjoyed great sandwiches and shakes and ice cream; then relaxed in their large sitting area filled with cool couches, chairs & tables with games to enjoy while you eat! Fun place!!

We were searching for something different for breakfast. We loved this place. The people were friendly; the bagel super. We enjoyed the coffee while watching the car show. We'd highly recommend this place

The coffee was great and then they even had gluten free muffins! We enjoyed sitting on the couches. The menu was much larger than one would expect for a coffee shop. This was an enjoyable place.

Had lunch with my wife and sister-in-law. Great selection of tasty if unusual sandwiches. The shop was unique in its seating arrangement, but was comfortable. A bit noisy and busy, but the meal was tasty and the coffee selection great

Nice large coffee house. Food was average. Larger menu for food than I was expecting. The crack brownie was very good.

This is apparently the spot to be in town. They have an extensive menu and their coffee was perfect as I had ordered something not on the menu. Very happy, would come again and recommend it!

We stopped here for lunch while visiting Hannibal, in between touring Rockcliffe Mansion and the Mark Twain Cave. This was a perfect break, really good coffee and unique sandwiches and soups. They have beautiful pottery for sale from the place down the street. The atmosphere...More

We travel through Hannibal every so often going from home to family in St. Louis. We frequently stop at Java Jive just because the coffee and service and people are always so welcoming.

There is always something happening down at Java Jive. In the morning, you can join in on a heated political debate with the Royal Academy of Gentlemen sitting outside, cozy up on a gently used sofa with one of the daily papers or recent magazine, and catch up on e-mail and business with our free wi-fi.
Our coffee selection features coffees from all around the world in a variety of flavors and roasts, sure to suit any taste. We take pride in using a local roaster, Chauvin Coffee, a family owned business now in its fourth generation of roast masters.
Java Jive also offers a wonderful selection of fresh baked goods and deli items each day. We pride ourselves in having bakers and chefs that work tirelessly to create new and interesting soups, salads and desserts.
