Java Beach are independent, mom ‘n pop shops co-owned by San Franciscans husband and wife team, Patrick and Buffy Maguire. Forever a work in progress, Java Beach is their love and life work. Java Beach and Ocean Beach have become synonymous for many including the Maguire’s. OB is where they live, work and play. Their days are devoted to making Java Beach the best it can be. This process starts with the coffee, where they engage in meticulous standards of sourcing, cupping and roasting. They apply these standards to every aspect at Java Beach.

Beer AND coffee. HUGE sandwiches. If you're hungry after a visit to the beach, this is your place. Laid back and very casual GooglePlace - July 2017

Great place, great service. All very relaxed and comfortable. Their irish soda bread was excellent! I made myself some honey butter with the honey they have at the bad and slathered it on for the perect added touch. GooglePlace - July 2017

Good coffee and sandwiches. You can even grab a beer! Expect a little bit of a wait for a seat if you are with others and want to sit together. If on your own, don't be afraid to ask a stranger if the seat across from them is taken. Great atmosphere. GooglePlace - June 2017

Drove out to the beach to check it out. Place looked great. Ambiance was nice. Live music! Great beer selection! The vegetarian sandwich looked uninspired. Those... we have all these the toppings and garnishes for our meat sandwiches so lets put them on bread for the vegetarians - no protein - kind of sandwiches. I'm glad they had the options, but I'm glad we went somewhere else. GooglePlace - April 2017

Visit a couple times a month. It's a great cafe with a good range of baked goods, bagels and sandwiches. Occasionally there is a local artist playing music in the corner. Check the schedule and plan ahead a bit so you don't have to get interrupted to move. Being close to the beach, there can be quite a few vagrants. The staff is very mindful and no one has ever been violent that I've seen. Also, please don't be the person that sits for hours and only buys one coffee and takes up an entire area. It's very inconsiderate of the business and rude, this isn't a Starbucks. GooglePlace - March 2017
