“Always a great place!!”

Java Station & Cafe
Ranked #5 of 43 Restaurants in Toccoa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 July 2017 via mobile

We go here way too often, probably, as we live within walking distance. So admittedly, I am a little biased; we've seen a lot of this place in the last twenty years.

The current owners are doing a fantastic job of keeping up Java Station's reputation. They get their coffee from a local roaster (Jittery Joes) and always have a wide selection brewed each day. They'll make just about any coffee- type drink you can think of, and it will taste better and be cheaper than Starbucks. They've gotten more consistent with their employee training regarding making iced coffee (for awhile this could be hit-or-miss). They always have a 'drink of the day', which is a specialty drink for about half-price.

The last few years they've really blossomed the restaurant side of the business. They've started serving a breakfast menu (think anything egg or biscuit- based). They have a wide variety of sandwiches (including a daily special) and some very creative choices of soup for lunch. Supper is a one-item daily feature, but you can also get a burger if you're not feeling the special.

If I had one wish, it would be that they opened one hour earlier (currently 7 on weekdays and 8 on Saturday; they're closed Sunday) so I could get a decent coffee on the way to work.

Atmosphere is a mixture of college student (during the school year) with business professionals with families of varying demographics.

This is one you've really got to try if you're anywhere nearby.

Great Breakfast and lunch food, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. The porch area is a great place to catch some sun and still stay cool.

Love this place, from their sandwiches to their specialty drinks. A wonderful change of pace from the other food places in Toccoa.

I had the club sandwich on sourdough. SO hard to get something like that these days, especially in a small town. It was very good, and I was full for the rest of the day. I had fries with it, also good, and a small sliver of my friends quesadilla- which was absolutely the best I have had in years.
The drinks are quite pricey (think "Starbucks" pricing) but they are good and there is plenty of variety. They have cheesecake (I've had it, it's always good), and this day I ate a brownie - very very good. I wanted more, but could not have eaten another bite.
One commenter calls this place "trendy" - After visiting St. Louis, New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, I wouldn't say it is trendy, but it's not a dive for sure. What was once an old gas station has been perfectly re-purposed into a lovely little eatery with a variety of clientele. During Fall/winter/spring, you will probably seem many college students (hence the laptops), but during the summer older woman playing cards, teens escaping the heat, and moms having a pleasant afternoon- and anything and everything in between. On this particular day there were many women, which I rather enjoyed. It was relaxed, pleasant, and not a trendy day.
