We cooled off with a butter pecan nitro cold brew after our stop at the Java House.

Fort Myers’ downtown district is cozy — just a few blocks full of shops, bars and eateries. So stumbling upon a coffee shop previously unknown to exist is a delightful surprise.

Java House is just a few steps away from downtown’s “main drag,” but this cute, comfy cafe is well worth the (very short) trip out of the way. Located at 1617 Hendry St., it’s a neighbor to the Cowboy Up Saloon and the Open Door Shoppes in the historic Robb & Stucky building.


Java House has options for any coffee lover, and serves breakfast, lunch and pastries. 

The atmosphere is calm and quiet, and the inside of the cafe is small but airy with its high ceilings, making it a perfect place to stop and relax while downtown or settle in with a good book.

And attention iced coffee lovers: owners Mike and Sara Peters serve up a delicious cold brew on nitro, with many delicious flavors to choose from. The Peters’ coffee options are diverse for every taste bud with locally-roasted beans. The drink menu includes cafe cubano, cubano con leche, espresso, breve and many others. Tea fans aren’t left underserved; chai lattes and matcha lattes are on tap, too.

Besides coffee, the cafe serves up breakfast dishes, lunch sandwiches and wraps, and delectable pastries. Many of the options are gluten-free and homemade.

Java House is open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Yum! Many of Java House’s pastries are also gluten free!
