New ownership causing speed bumps
Reviewer: Fred from Ventura, CA
I have been going to Java Lu religiously since it opened over 3 years ago. They had the best coffee in Ventura. When I learned that the shop may be closing I was upset but was quickly optimistic to learn that is was being bought. The shop has quickly changed from great coffee everyday to average coffee sometimes. The first thing the new owner did was change the coffee and mocha mix which were the 2 aspects that kept me coming back. Now it's extremely hard to justify $3.30 for a medium mocha. I urge the new owner to look at what all the loyal customers came in for! Anyone can make a cup of coffee but the successful shops consistently make great cups of coffee. On top of that the espresso machine has been broken on 3 separate occasions over the past month. Java Lu is currently closed for the rest of March for remodeling. Although I can appreciate a nice facade it doesn't mean anything if the coffee is average. I went to Java Lu for great coffee. I sincerely hope that when the shop re-opens I will be pleasantly surprised. Baristas: COFFEE SHOULD BE HOT!!!

Java Lu is under new ownership!
Reviewer: Mary Ann from Ventura,CA
Java Lu is under new ownership and the service is great and the drinks are even better than they used to be. It is owned by the same people who own Java Joe's by the movies. They have the best coffee! I buy it by the pound. It is called Community and is out of Louisiana. Maybe if we beg they'll bring their gumbo over to Java Lu. That stuff is good! I'm glad they came to the east end, we could use a little action! It is definitely my new favorite hang out for studying.

A Great Place More People Should Know About!
Reviewer: Teri Hayes from Ventura, ca
Javalu is a great coffee house! I know not a lot of people know about it, but the coffee is excellent and the service super friendly. I just found out they serve lunches - panini's and salads...they have absolutely the best tuna basalmic vinegarette salad!

Awesome coffee & Great service!
Reviewer: Sabrina from Ventura, CA
Javalu offers the best espresso & drip coffee in town! I highly recommend the Java Estate Blend. The lunches are also is the only eatery at the east end of Ventura that offers panini sandwiches & gourmet salads at a low price. The homemade balsamic vinagrette dressing is the best I have ever tasted! Outstanding local business!
