Mmmmm… the wonderful smell that wakes you up in the morning. That pick-me up when the-mid afternoon slump hits. What would we do without coffee?
Hannibal is very lucky to have Java Jive – the First Coffee Shop West of the Mississippi. (No, really – it’s one block from the Mississippi. They dare you to find a coffee shop closer.) This shop along Historic Main Street is a stone’s throw away from the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and is a local favorite for a caffeine fix.
Not only does Java Jive use finely roasted Chauvin coffee from St. Louis, right down the river, they also cook up unbelievable desserts and breakfast goodies. So we offer you, fine readers, a mental coffee break in the form of some mouth-watering pictures. You’re welcome.
First, you need a welcoming atmosphere – Java Jive provides in spades.
Then, something to get you going for that late afternoon deadline:
Or perhaps you are looking for a sweet way to start your day…
…and a good ol’ hot cuppa joe – in a hand-made Ayers Pottery mug, of course.
Finally, let’s end with some wild ones, shall we? How about a Guinness cupcake.
Or a coffee concoction made with Lavender syrup?
You never know what kind of fun treats await you at Java Jive.
You may even get asked THE question:
So come on over to Hannibal. We have a cup with your name on it.
