Java Cat

High atop rich red raspberry gelato sits a ganache filled chocolate Buddha. Java Cat café offers what seems to be an unending array of in house made gelato flavors ($6.00 a pint). Pair it up with the Gail Ambrose chocolates (ranging from $1.75-2.25 each) in flavors like orange liquor, jasmine or rose. Java Cat also offers coffee, soup, sandwiches, and bakery items.
