Although this is a lovely cafe, and the food was delicious, I had to say I was very disappointed with the service received. When entering, the waitress, who looked to be in her early twenties, did not come to greet us nor say hello, and...More

Got a cappuccino. Thick layer of tasteless froth and the rest might have well as been hot water with a few granules of instant coffee

As a Galway local, I have been to Javas many times. The staff are friendly, quick service once ordered. Great place to go and have a chat with friends, for a low key date night, or just for a solo coffee! Food is great too!

We had scoped out Java’s during the day and returned for dinner. This is an authentic Breton creperie. We enjoyed both dinner crepes and dessert crepes. Only in France have we tasted such good crepes. Highly recommended. Also serve wine.

I had the savory crepe of the day, chicken, potato & Edam, really delicious, fresh, tasty and filling, followed by a rhubarb crumble that was really delicious. Great food, very reasonably priced, busy spot but relaxed & friendly, nobody rushing, but not left waiting either....More

The older french women in particular here can be pretty cold and rude if they don't think you've ordered enough. Pity, really good place otherwise
