Excellent coffee and just the right sweets to go with them. Located right in the area where you sightsee in Hannibal. Has great display and sales opportunity for local pottery. Pity I had packing issues already and no room in the suitcase.

Very laid back atmosphere. Can get a great cup of coffee of other types of drinks and also a fair lunch menu. Sort of a deli atmosphere. They do have to die for dessert choices!

Stopped in for an iced coffee while visiting Hannibal. Plenty of comfortable seating area and there are lots of coffee choices. Food is also served, although we did not order any. Service was efficient. Prices reasonable. Staff friendly. All good.

There is always something happening down at Java Jive. In the morning, you can join in on a heated political debate with the Royal Academy of Gentlemen sitting outside, cozy up on a gently used sofa with one of the daily papers or recent magazine, and catch up on e-mail and business with our free wi-fi. Our coffee selection features coffees from all around the world in a variety of flavors and roasts, sure to suit any taste. We take pride in using a local roaster, Chauvin Coffee, a family owned business now in its fourth generation of roast masters. Java Jive also offers a wonderful selection of fresh baked goods and deli items each day. We pride ourselves in having bakers and chefs that work tirelessly to create new and interesting soups, salads and desserts.
