We tried their local Vermont ice cream and it was big enough to share for two people. The server engaged very well with us and even gave us a little tour advice. They also have pizza but it was too early to order. They only available at lunch time.

I have been to Java Baba's a few times. Every time I have the same experience. It's a busy little place with a lot going on. I feel like there's too much going on. The food is good. Quality ideas and well thought out menu. A little overwhelming though and very hard to decide because the menu is written on... More

We stopped in for breakfast on the way to an orchard. I had the Americano which was strong and piping hot. I also had a sausage egg and cheese on a hard roll. Soft hard roll and perfectly cooked egg, but the star was the cheese...VT sharp cheddar. Overall, perfect little stop in downtown.

Slow service, bagel was good. Very friendly. Would hate to see his place on a busy day. I guess I would come back if there was no where else to go.

This is a great place to stop for a bite. Mom and I had the eggplan sandwich. She wished it had some sauce on it. I wish I had some hot peppers to give it a bit more flavor though I stilll love it. The white bread was too bland for the eggplant. Next time I would choose a different... More

Definitely a place to come back for a good cup of coffee. To go with the coffee there is a good selection of muffin and cake. The place has a good atmosphere and there is a lot of space to sit. Who need a Starbucks if there are places like this.

When the owner of Java Baba hired their pizza chef, they struck gold. The pizza has that wonderfully thin, perfectly baked crust that one only finds in the metropolitan NY area. We loved eating every delicious bite!

I ordered a veggie burger with cheese. It was pretty bland, with not much else on the plate. It looked like they warmed it in a microwave and then put it in the bun, which was not grilled or even warm. Very disappointing. Not worth the money.
