About Port City Java

Port City Java® Cafes has an "All Day Approach" based on three main offerings to allow sales throughout the day: on-site baked pastries, fresh roasted coffee and espresso; fresh fruit smoothies and freshly squeezed juices; and hot Panini sandwiches from our Panini Grill with soups and salads.

Values & History

Since 1995, Port City Java® has been serving its customers great coffee and espresso drinks, fresh juices and smoothies from the juice bar, fresh-baked pastries, hot Panini sandwiches, soups, and fresh salads. Port City Java® has cafes across the United States and operates in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. Port City Java® has some two dozen coffeehouses operating along the Atlantic coast today.
