Our Story

Java Been's interior found space before the renovations photo

Location. Location. Location!

Java Been's newest building is located on the river and used to be an Old Saw Mill building that was renovated into a cafe, galleries, study spaces, and event spaces.

  • Java Been's outdoor patio offers lush green space along the river front with plentiful al-fresco seating.
