Had coffee and breakfast here one morning. Coffee was good, but both our breakfasts were just OK and tasted like they had forgot to add salt to the eggs or something. They did provide salt shakers but it's hard to add salt to a burrito.

We stopped in for coffee after twice seeing a crowd sitting around outside the shop. The experience was average but nothing spectacular. My wife ordered a latte and I a coffee. I asked the person being the counter for a light roast (they had 2 options). She looked at me in confusion and after a lot of mumbling, recommended one... More

The coffee was excellent and so were the cookies. The food looked awesome but we weren't hungry for a meal when we visited. I strongly recommend stopping in and having a coffee, cookie and if you are hungry checking out their salads or sandwhiches.

Stop reading this and go here now! Amazing coffee selection and even better tasting. The little monkey smoothie was amazing as well. Going back as much as I can while we're here.

I get it, im not the target consumer for java Kai, but fair warning this is not a steak and potatoes kinda place. Good place for vegans, health nuts, yoga girls, or contemporary gentlemen etc. My wife and I went here based on the reviews and I was immediately disappointed when looking at the menu. Only a few breakfast sandwhiches... More

I came here under the impression that it's a healthy food spot, but when I asked about their smoothie they use canned pineapple juice NOT fresh ones! Very disappointed. Service was soso too, so I do not understand why it's popular at all.
