A great coffee shop, comfortable and eye catching artwork and decor. The owners are amazingly friendly and easy to talk with. Finally, a coffee shop in Hendersonville that cares about the ambiance AND has great coffee and talented baristas.

For goodness sakes! That's a fine way to encourage a local business.
Perhaps Belmont needs a similar touch of class.

Let's hope it stays! This is exactly what Black Bear needs - real competition, and not mere sympathy. Perhaps they'll even stay open past the early bird hours of 6 or 7!

I walked into Jonga the other day and couldn't figure out why they claim to be for the environment. The place smelled like chemical carpet cleaner and hairspray. Yuk. I give it 3 months. What flies in Florida usually doesn't fly here.

Anyone else passionate and very particular about espresso? I haven't made it in to try Jongo Java's.

Over-Priced Coffee although good but, the most Arrogant, Ill-mannered service that I have ever experienced. If this businees continues to treat people like I was treated it will not last through the Winter. Good Luck finding another job Y'all.

The espresso is excellent, as is the service. Some people thrive on negativity.

I love the atmosphere at Jongo! It always makes me feel like I should just stay a while and sometimes I get to. When that happens, the thing I appreciate even more than the same excellent friendly service is the consistant theme of great taste. Be it my fabu muffin, my wonderous homemade carrot ginger soup or the amazing sugar free vanilla breve' that makes me cry when it's over, it's all superb! I am just happy to see a seat open when I get the opportunity to stay.

This coffee house serves ORGANIC MILK! So basically you are getting a GREAT DEAL!Coffee is a dime more plus they use those compostable cups not the foam cups. They won an award for caring. I always feel so welcome when I go there. This is the real deal. Has anyone had their scone bars? They are amazing. All I could smell was espresso, brownies baking and a hint of bacon! YUM! I heard blues playing and laughter!
