Located in the Outer Sunset, right next to the Great Highway, Java Beach Cafe is as close as you can get to coffee on the beach. This cafe offers lots of seating both inside and outside, as well a unique ambiance and style. From tables made out of surfboards to a handcrafted wood bar, there’s a lot of character in this quaint establishment! Keep reading to learn more about the cafe with good vibes and great views.
History of Java Beach Cafe
Founded in 1993, this coffee shop was created and maintained by San Francisco locals who dearly loved their community. Therefore, the cafe has a sense of “home” to it–locals often stay to chat or work for hours at the wooden tables. This cafe is always ready to serve its customers a great cup of coffee. Java Beach Cafe is open from 5:30AM to 11PM on weekdays and 6AM to 11PM on weekends. All of Java Cafe’s coffee is locally roasted and organic, sustainable, and fair trade, which probably contributes to the coffee’s great taste.

What to Order at Jave Beach Cafe
Java Beach Cafe’s coffee, Java Classics and Hot Subs reign supreme. This cafe knows how to make a good sandwich and offers options for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. When I went, my friend ordered the Java Club with Chicken Breast, which is made with crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and mayo on sourdough bread. I ordered the Whirling Dervish, which is made with grilled tomato, melted feta, mixed greens, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and seasoning (featured below). Pair your sandwich with coleslaw for a delicious kick.
