An afternoon visit with my wife while in Lafayette. Coffees and sweets. Coffee was top notch and well done. Had the Citrus/berry cake on the side. It had great potential but was a little dried out. Tasted like it had sat a while. All and all a good visit and nice pleasant atmosphere. We will be back.

Love this coffee shop! I've been wanting to try it since we moved to Lafayette and my husband and I were able to come after a date night and enjoy delicious coffee, quaint and charming atmosphere.

We stopped by Johnston Street Java on our way into town and enjoyed coffee, tea, and scones. While it's possible to go wrong with all of the above, that doesn't happen at JSJ. Coffee. Their baked goods are yummy and all of the drinks, including smoothies, are worth trying. The space is calm, welcoming, quiet, and comfortable. Great spot!

Stopped by for a change from the normal Starbucks routine, was rather disappointed with their coffee, atmosphere is great, but lukewarm weak coffee should never be served. Back to bucks!

Open until 11 on most days, their coffee is better than Starbucks if your coffee taste buds are sophisticated. Do not go there for pastries unless you just want a chocolate muffin ( very good). The tea is good but not as good as the coffee. Best after a good meal. They serve New Orleans style coffee beans but they... More

Next door to the movie theater and we had coffee while waiting for our movie time to arrive. The coffee was good and the wifi even better.

Expresso machines appear to be few and far between outside the major towns in this area. It was therefor a pleasant surprise to discover a non Starbucks in Lafayette not far from where we were staying. It appears to be a popular place to meet and/or work with ample outlets for laptops. The coffee is quite good and they have... More
