Ideal spot for breakfast or something to grab during the day. Menu would provide for most. View of the ocean is great.

This establishment has a great view of the ocean and it was difficult to find a table here early in the morning. Service was slow, but the coffee was excellent.

We always call in here for coffee/brunch. The food is great and the staff are friendly, approachable. This time we were luckily to see a school/pod of dolphins hunting in the breakers. They entertained us for about 39-40 minutes.

Came here a few times for late breakfast or fruit smoothie and wifi. Lovely fresh food, well prepared and presented. Service was good. A great place to sit, eat, drink and watch the world go by.

I simply love this busy caffe on the beach. The food is amazing and I go back for the breakfast religiously. Perfect view, perfect setting, perfect food and service is excellent. Only improvement would be on the large cappuccinos as they don't taste as nice as the standard size. Will be back time and again

Ideally-located in Umdloti for a morning coffee, laid-back breakfast, lunch or dinner or afternoon cocktail, Java Cafe provides a beautiful setting! Outdoor balcony area affords terrific oceanic vistas and indeed, perfect place to watch the passing parade in the street below. And if winds are the order-of-the-day, their interior provides a great alternate option. Wonderful, friendly and attentive staff. Great... More

Service is very up and down. The one morning its fast and friendly and the next its slow and painfull. Good prices and the food is not bad. Coffee shocked me out of my boots but it was great.
