Java at JKIA is always my last meal before I leave on a flight. One of my favorite meals is the turkey avocado wrap (with spicy chips, of course). If you're in a hurry, there are premade wraps and sandwiches for take away. Sitting down to eat can take a while, and the restaurant can get crowded.

Lovely pastries, fair prices for an airport, staff extremely friendly. Also want to point out how clean the actual airport is! I have never seen so many people constantly cleaning, right down to the railings and skirting boards!

My husband and I wanted to grab a quick bite to eat before flying out of jkia so we stopped in at Java as there are not many options around. Both our drinks and our meals were served super quickly.
