Get there early or you'll have a wait. It's a charming little coffee shop that is a favorite of the locals. The baristas take pride in making great coffees and teas and the breakfast and lunch selections are usually quite yummy. It's worth heading to...More

If you’re looking for a great cup of coffee in Ketchum, Idaho, Java on fourth is a fantastic espresso bar. And the chocolate chip scones are delicious!

We were there in August and just had to stop as it was my friends old stomping grounds. We were lucky enough to get a seat outdoors which was a bit warm but beautiful. We both ordered the Granola with fruit/yogurt for breakfast along with...More

The coffee was good, but the owner was a Zionist nut who engaged us in a conversation about how he hated Muslims. I was shocked to encounter this so openly. He should be ashamed.

In Ketchum for a week on wedding duty. We have made this a daily morning stop. The Keith Richards is da bomb and will have you straight in a minute, haha. I may have to tone it down to the Bowl of Soul however. :)...More

I have bought Bowls of Soul over the past 25+ years. Excellent drink--be sure to order in ceramic mug. I just wish they would work on the acoustics in the Ketchum site. It gets too loud for some of us with "older ears."

This place rocks. They have been in business for years and the Bowl of Soul is so very tasty. I had breakfast twice on a recent trip and the food arrives quickly and is thoughtfully prepared. You know you are in the right place when...More

In November 1991 Todd Rippo began what he would today describe as a selfish endeavor. Essentially he created a place where he would want to hang out. Java has a hand crafted bakery menu (most of the recipes from Todd's sister Annie) and breakfast and lunch menus that echo his southern California roots. In line with his original vision Java uses fresh roasted, fair trade and relationship coffees and serves it all in an inviting, rock n' roll atmosphere where the music is played a bit too loud!
