This café survives on location and it's regulars. It's staff couldn't make a flat white if it hit them. No issue on employing youngsters but don't hide behind being nice as an excuse for good coffee. A local icon for local people Melbourne it's not. !

One of the best cups of coffee I've had on the Island. And the girls behind the counter were quick and efficient and matched my bad jokes with some quick repartee. Only in there for 20 minutes but thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

Great place to go for noodles, in addition to making the best coffee in Douglas, so much better than the usual boring chains. Also offers excellent lunch time soups, sandwiches, quiches and pasties! Very friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommended!

Exceptional quality espresso. The best I have enjoyed in IoM. They really know how to make a decent coffee. Service also excellent and friendly. So good I re-ordered and by showing my receipt got it half price!

I am a daily visitor at Java and have been for years. I cannot praise the friendly, efficient staff enough, both in the coffee lounge and the noodle bar - no request is denied, they really do aim to please. All their home-made food is tasty, from the noodles to soups, pastries, sandwiches, cakes and snacks in the coffee lounge.... More

I go to Java every day, sometimes twice. The food, coffee and service are all great, there is nothing I could complain about. All the food appears to be made on the premises so you can choose from a good selection of freshly made cakes, pasties, soup, sandwiches and noodles. Actually, if I did have a complaint it is that...
