A great go-to coffee place in the heart of historic Uptown Saint John, and one of the best destinations in the Old City Market. Service is fast and efficient and the selection is excellent.

Although we are almost 2000 kilometers away we absolutely love the coffee served at Java Moose. We made it a main stop every time we come to Saint John. This time we were served by Amanda who went out of her way to help us get more of our favourite pods in K-cup form (Bay of Fundy blend in case... More

I live in fredericton and buy java moose beans so when I get down to Saint John I always stop by. Friendly service, great spot, and an awesome latte. The iced spiced chai is pretty great also!

Located right in the market, this location has many choices of coffee beans as well as baked goods and coffee beverages. My soy latte was perfect. The staff are friendly and very efficient.
