Review of Java Coffee House by LeMonster on Wed, 05 Jul 2006:

My views tend to differ vastly from JeremyH. I was the business broker that sold Java Coffee House in September 2004. Rodents was definitely a problem then which has since been eradicated. The CCC inspector that came to conduct a health inspection commented on the good job by the new operator. I would suggest that JeremyH gets his facts right before writing a review.

As for the coffee, their new barista, Natalie makes a mean coffee, good crema and very consistent milk. The new beans, Dolce Vita by Piazza Dóro is much more consistent than the Hummingbird blend that they used to have.

As for the menu, the breakfast menu has an extended range compared to before. I strongly recommmend the pancakes. The streaky bacon is excellent.

Upon a recent visit, I found the cafe to be more children friendly with a toy box and high chair. With a new water cooler, I find it more convenient than having to asked for chilled water from the staff. On Mother's Day this year, I found the cafe packed out. What can I say, the paying customer knows what's best for them.
