About Us

Why is an independent coffee shop on Elgin Street, with three major chains as neighbours, still going strong? We give our clients the last word:

Hava Java coffee shop has been serving the Elgin Street community since 1992. Family owned and operated, Hava Java is dedicated to serving the finest in food and beverages. New owners Robert and Sarah (January, 2009) have sought to create a true neighbourhood atmosphere that distinguishes Hava Java from the franchise coffee shops on the street. Come in for a visit and see for yourself!

Hava Java is a cozy haven with class in a sea of trendy impersonal chains. It's a friendly family-run cafe where people of all ages and stripes comfortably mingle while the soft sound of jazz sets a relaxed tone. The food and the coffee are always fresh and delicious and vegetarians are as much at home as meatlovers. When I need a break or a touch of comfort, it's the first place that comes to mind.

We also have received many electronic reviews!

So do come down and meet Robert, Sara and the family!
