At Java Jax, refreshing, roasted-on-site coffee beverages unite with fresh sandwiches and specialty hot dogs to populate a varied menu of afternoon fare. Temper tempests of tastelessness with a flavor-packed Chicago-style hot dog loaded to the hilt with relish, peppers, celery, tomatoes, onions, and dripping with mustard ($3), or let your mouth play host to a jalapeno & cheddar cheese dog ($3.50). Meanwhile, patrons of holed cuisine can delight in a tasty spread of hummus on a bagel ($3.50) or spoon out a see-hole through a turkey sandwich ($6.50). Feel free to rest atop the cushy diner-style stools and bathe in the store's natural sunlight as you absorb the fresh-brewed espresso potables, such as the café mocha ($3–$3.75), or sip a blend of earthbound sweets in the fruit smoothies ($3.50–$4).
Need a fix? That's what we do. We offer hand-crafted gourmet pizzas, authentic Italian gelato and sorbet (made fresh daily), baked-to-order cookies (in under 2 minutes), delicious oven-roasted sandwiches (served with homemade fries) and some pretty yummy appetizers too!
The rich flavors of Arabica beans burst from Panama Red Coffee Co.'s menu of handpicked coffee, ground and steeped using a craftsman-style batch-roasting technique.

A blizzard of coffee, milk, and chocolate sweeteners swirl in the frosty Mocha Breeze ($3.35–$4.45) and regular or sugar-free hints of vanilla, almond, Jamaican rum, and other aromatic accents permeate flavored lattes ($3.15–$4.15). Cono pouring is available at the coffee bar for tastings and regular cups of coffee.

Chef Greg Johnson transfigures time-tested favorites into creative dishes at the award-winning Zinsvalley Restaurant.

At dinner, gourmands can sip local small-production vintages while elegantly slurping shrimp linguini ($16) or the chef's signature steak frittes, which pairs grilled Kobe Bavette with chili-rubbed fries and watercress ($24).
The oenophiles at Napa Valley Toffee Company satiate cravings for local flavors with tastings of Napa-produced wines and luscious homemade chocolates.
