Java Point Cafe: More Than Just Coffee

January 20, 2015 4:23 pm

Java Point Cafe is more than just coffee and baked goods. Located in a cozy spot in downtown Benicia, this family owned cafe creates breakfasts and lunches that customers enjoy. The eggs benedict are served on croissants and are a popular choice, but you won’t go wrong with anything on their chalkboard menu. The coffee at Java Point is just as delicious, it’s fair trade and reasonably priced too. The space is cozy with several two-person tables, and a sidewalk patio. Regulars love people watching on warm days and the free Wi-Fi is a nice perk.
