A trademarked registered 24/7 operational , home inspired, Filipino-themed music café where one can drink local coffee, tea and soda blends; eat Davao-produced sweet and savory dishes; and on special days, listen to the best of Davao music talents. That’s JavaJive! One of the homegrown businesses in Davao City.
They just opened their second branch recently at Stall A-1, Wheels N More Compound, JP Laurel Avenue, Davao City (old Space Burger). This is a great news for coffee and music lovers who are from the North but not bad for Davaoeños from the South since the place is pretty accessible.
Last November 30, 2014, I was one of the Davao Bloggers Society members who attended the Java Jive Blogger’s Night. Engr. Jairus, the General Manager welcomed us and discussed what this new branch could best offer to Davaoeños.
Compared to their mother branch located at Quirino Avenue, Davao City, I am more comfortable to dine and have coffee here because I am used to that so called “me time mode”. They have more tables good for 1-3 persons, a perfect spot to study or for some relaxation. They also have their Al Fresco area, to cater more customers or for others who would like to enjoy fresh air while having coffee and other beverages.
Of course we were able to try some of their savory dishes, desserts and beverages.
Tuna Salad on Ciabatta
a hefty mix of tuna in brine, organic mayonnaise, mixed herbs and chopped shallots, sliced cucumber and green lettuce served on a white Ciabatta bread .
Chicken Pesto on Focaccia
This one is my favorite! A mix of shredded chicken white meat, onions and a home-made pesto sauce (fresh basil, mixed nuts and almonds, olive oil and herbs), sliced cucumber, and green lettuce served on a herbed focaccia bread.
named after a Frenchman who shared this authentic french recipe to JavaJive, “Seafood Marinara” a pasta dish made with penne and bolognese sauce (whole tomato, herbs and seafood-beef stock), topped with freshly sauteed sliced seafoods (malasugue, shrimps, octopus and/or clams)
The Belgian Chocolate Mousse
a classic 75% dark chocolate mousse topped with a hand-crafted chocolate tuile
Les Opera Moist Cake
a signature chocolate cake (base of The JavaJive’s Choco Lava Ala Mode) topped with an italian chocolate ganache and pinned with edible gold.
a JavaJive best seller cupcake made with ripened bananas and white cake base, topped with crunchy biscuit bits.
Salted Caramel Milk Tea with Salt and Cheese
JavaJive Bajada’s Newest Best-seller: a Jazz-blend of authentic Taiwan black tea hand-shaken with Salted Caramel Sauce, topped with a salt & cheese concoction mixture.
The Chocolate Chip Peppermint Twist
(which I forgot to take a photo; but I’ll update this asap; still have to order it)
JavaJive’s Christmas Holiday Drink: a Jazz-blend of our signature Chocolate Chip Serenade and Peppermint Syrup. A whole cool and fresh way to enjoy Christmas!
For someone like me who’s not that fan of chocolates, you will still enjoy their desserts because its not too sweet.
You may check the following photos for their menu:
While enjoying the food, the experience was completed by the performances of Davao music Talents.
The Negative Four
This guyz are really amazing. I ‘m in love with their music. Catch them live every Friday night at Quirino branch! I guess they’re incomplete that night.
The Echoistic Band
This young singers as well are very promising. They sing OPM songs with a taste of modern acoustic genre.
Aside from them, customers who are willing to jam and sing with them are also welcome during Jammer’s time and this is another thing I applause JavaJive, they really support and hone Davaoeños talent. It will also make you feel at home because they interact with the customers.
I just so love that I found this place. No need to go to noisy parties to enjoy music. It’s a perfect place for me to stay maybe once in while specially if stressed out from work.
Make sure to visit this new branch of JavaJive in the City.

– After that Blogger’s night I visited the place for 3 times already. First I invited my workmates but unfortunately there was no band performers that time but we still enjoy our food and coffee. So we went again the other day and BOOM! They were captured by their experience, so they wanna come again. The next time I visited with my college friends for my post birthday celebration and ended up table hopping because unexpectedly my workmates also came for another Java Jive experience. We even called our group that night as #TeamThinkingOutLOud . Thinking Out Loud – one of our favorite songs by Ed Sheeran which we requested and the Negative Four band nailed it.
See you again after the Holidays! Guess I’ll keep on coming back!
