Run by a husband and wife this place is always great. Fantastic and unique omelettes and excellent waffles and pancakes. Very bohemian crowd that makes me feel like I am in San francisco

I wouldn't classify Java Jive as expensive but I do think their prices are higher than average for what you get. Our breakfast bill was $30 + tip for two adults and a child. Food is OK, average. (Not up there with Ria's Bluebird Cafe)...More

This place wasn't the worst place for breakfast but it's not award winning either. It's very old and retro inside. The food was ok but they so not serve you enough food for your money. Also the AC seemed like it was broken so that...More

Leaving Atlanta, my daughter and I enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast. I had sweet, she had savory. Both were amazing. Small town feel in a large city. Will return on my next visit

Java Jive is a small diner style restaurant on Ponce de Leon close to Ponce City Market. Limited hours, limited parking. Best dish on the menu is a gingerbread waffle with lemon curd. Only served on Saturday and Sunday. This waffle is fabulous-slightly crunchy, slightly...More

My kind of place. This place is so cool, you won't even believe it! It's all fifties stuff. Tables, chairs, toasters, stoves, blenders. It's awesome! Then the food has the best of the new style to it. An excellent breakfast. On the top ten list...More
