Lava Java really understates itself. Seriously. You look at it from the outside and think it’s a coffee shop and “café.” You walk inside and the waitor is extremely attentive, excellent manners, and very nicely dressed. The menu has an excellent selection of coffees, fabulous mixed drinks, wines, beers, elegant and tantalizing appetizers, sandwiches or full meals, as well as a convincing dessert menu. While we came for coffee and a sandwich, we ended up having Irish coffee and an elegant (though small) meal. The spinach artichoke dip was superb. We got out at $20, though we did not order a full meal. This place is a great choice for a nicer meal with some excellent coffee.
