A co-worker, who follows my stories in the Community Voice, asked if I also cover the Penngrove area in my wanderings. Haven’t before as it’s a bit out my stomping grounds, but sure why not. So, she suggested I try JavAmore Café at 10101 Main Street, Suite A. It’s in the back of the little shopping area across from the firehouse in Penngrove. It’s a breakfast and lunch type place. Monday through Friday they are open 6:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. On Saturday it’s 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Sunday their hours are 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
During the weekdays it’s more a coffee house in the morning than a full-service breakfast restaurant. With your coffee or tea, you can have an egg & cheese breakfast sandwich and can add toppings like spinach, mushrooms, ham or bacon for a small additional charge. The sandwich can be made on an English Muffin, sliced Sourdough, Wheat, Bagel or Rye bread. You can also have regular bagels with cream cheese or jelly, toast with butter, muffins or pastries.
On the weekends they serve off a full menu of traditional menu items such as eggs any style, omelets, pancakes and French toast. They also have specials such as Eggs Benedict or Florentine, homemade Corned Beef, and my friend’s favorite which is homemade Biscuits & Gravy. Most dishes come with country potatoes and toast while other sides are available for an additional charge. Their M-F breakfast sandwiches, muffins and pastries remain available too. On Saturday breakfast is available until noon while on Sunday you can order breakfast up until 1:30p.m. Their lunch menu which is available online is limited mostly to soups and salads.
During our visit the place wasn’t crowded although the online reviews show it can get crowded especially on weekends. The décor was quaint with artwork for sale on the walls and glasses, bottles, jars and cans from a past era filling the cabinets on the wall. Two rooms filled with a variety of wooden tables and chairs have seating for a couple of dozen patrons at a time. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful in making our selection. The food was good and the prices comparable to other small establishments we’ve visited. When not crowded it’s a place you can linger and have a social meet up without feeling rushed to eat and run and/or plop open your laptop and get some work done.
Thanks for the Tip!
