Tried stopping by here several times over my 6 week stay in Playa but this place was never open. I peeked in the windows and it looks like all of the furniture is there but stacked up against the wall. There was no note on the windows or door (that I could see) indicating that the place was closed temporarily... More

Jas (pronounced Jazz) is the owner of this streetside cafe. It's a good place to have a simple breakfast and coffee, but is exemplary in providing excellent conversation and tourist advice. Jas knows virtually everything and everybody and is willing to shoot the breeze with his customers. He is an Englishman, but likes Americans, as well as anybody in this... More

Skip the ubiquitous chain coffee shop and sip locally. Turn the corner off bustling 5th Avenue, walk five steps down Calle 10/10th Street and find the perfect landing place for a wonderful cup of coffee, great food (throughout the day), and tremendous hospitality. Sit at a cozy table in the recently redecorated space, or do what we did and perch... More

Java hits the spot with smooth coffee and hearty breakfast sandwiches. How they get the scrambled eggs so fluffy might be a secret worth discovering. I might have to ask owner, Jez, when I stop in again tomorrow morning.

I have visited Java in Nov 2012 and again in Jan 2013. Both times the owner made us feel right at home. We had a full breakfast in Nov and you cannot get a better meal for the price. Java isn't fancy, but clean and welcoming with good food. In Jan I had toast & juice as my tummy was... More
