After leaving another cafe in disgust I chanced on Java over half a dozen other cafes along George Street, but was a little concerned when staff seemed to have trouble with processing orders for the two customers queuing in front.
Thankfully my order wasn't too complicated and when it arrived I'm glad to say the food was very good. The club sandwich was substantial and jacket potato had generous toppings. Coffee was very good however one criticism would be the milkshakes were too thick to drink through a straw (but great on taste!).
Comments above regarding the noise of the smoothie machine were justified, it really was deafening - especially if you're sitting close to the counter. It was only used a couple of times whilst we were there (once for our order) so wasn't really an issue but I can appreciate some might want to use Java for a quiet meeting.
If you're looking for a quick bite to eat and good coffee, I can recommend Java!
Two of the staff were the rudest and most arrogant people I have ever had the unfortunate experience of meeting in the service industry. Most disappointing was that one was the manager. 0 out of 5 - will not be going back or recommending.
