For a counter service cafe the wait was far too long...almost 15 minutes for a coffee. Service was very friendly (once you got service). Coffee was average. I am curious about their breakfast menu, it is rather extensive for an order at the counter establishment....More

The Mocha Java Cafe is a landmark. Great food. Very friendly folks. Amazing coffee. Reasonable prices. Even visiting as a tourist (a local told me about it), one is treated like family. I love this place!
