Our Story

Opening in 1994, Java Johns has been in operation for over 25 years, providing coffee and espresso as well as salads, soups and pastries to the dedicated customer base.  Many of the residents have grown up with Java Johns as part of their morning routine, and others have incorporated the facility in their afternoon club activities, while tourists return time and time again to their favorite coffee house when visiting this Gold Rush Era town.  Java Johns is a hub of activity for all patrons – it is Everyone’s Coffeehouse.

Java Johns is located on Broad Street, the center of this unique and beloved town.  Nevada City is among the most interesting of California Gold Rush towns, attracting visitors from far and wide. The entire downtown district is a national historic landmark which hosts festivals, parades, day events, tours, celebrations, live music, theatre, performances and more.
