Very busy place for a casual breakfast. The selection of coffees, coffee cakes, and bagels is awesome. You stand in line to get your stuff then grab a table inside one out. Dog lovers can all sit outside. Try the bacon burrito....and oh yes the large blueberry banana coffee cake....yum!

Very friendly & non Starbucks vibe. Huge assortment of unique pastries & breakfast burritos. Coffee was uniquely tasty & not bitter. We took 2 bags home as gifts.

Great coffee and plenty of room inside this deceptively large establishment. Excellent Mexican mocha and ricotta pastry that was reminiscent of delicious Sicilian treats!

Best breakfast burritos ever. Great coffee too. Reasonable prices. Small patio out front if you like outside seating. I'll definitely return.

Every town needs a great local coffee shop and Java Man is Hermosa's Classic coffee and dessert bar. I'm not a big coffee drinker but really love their hot chocolate. I don't know what secret recipe that they use- but it's always velvety and super chocolatey ( is that a word?). Hubby orders a coffee with room or a latte-... More

In the very small Hermosa Beach downtown, close to everything. Coffee is great, but bake goods are better. Fresh fruit also. Great place to meet friends. Busy but they are fast so it doesn't seen like its crowded. Service is great, with a very friendly staff.

Locals seem to like the coffee, but the worker-owner, I don't know, with the short, shaved black hair and stubble is mean and rude. I actually came in while they were closing and said good afternoon, and the man didn't even acknowledge me. When I returned in the morning opening the door, he returned the evil eye. Thankfully, I did... More

Java Man has been around forever. Decent coffee, wifi, muffins, and sandwiches. It's all standard fare, but it's usually not as busy as your standard Starbucks. There is some outdoors seating available. Since it is a few blocks from the beach, tourists tend not to find this place (which is a good thing). Go Java Man!
