I've been a customer of the java shack for probably about a decade. Several days ago, as the ownership changed and Dale Roberts sold the store to a group that has been supplying the shop with coffee for some time, the most amazing thing was to see the outpouring of community love. I suppose hundreds of local folks and fans came out to bid Dale goodbye, commend him, purchase some coffee, and meet and greet in a true community node. Kudo's to Dale and the staff for creating that environment. In the days since, the coffee remains the same high quality, the environment remains the same and the new owners have an opportunity to expand upon Dale's great effort. Excellent local coffee shop.

Definitely a place to grab a book or go study. Per usual with coffee shops - free WIFI and plenty of space to sit back and relax.

"Triple - quad macchiato" the thermal wearing barista calls out at this hip little hole-in-the-wall cafe. Can cafes be divey? Well, yes maybe. Especially if it is covered in unframed photos from local artists, pinned up pet adoption brochures, and Java paraphernalia from all over the world. So what's important? The coffee. This place is priced reasonably with average coffees around $3-4 depending how many extra shots of vanilla you're in to. If you are not looking for your reg. cup of coffee, the specials are the way to go. There's many flavored lattes to choose from -- my fav was the hazelnut with four shots of espresso over ice and drizzled with vanilla and caramel. This place has charm because of the love of it's local residents from college grads to retirees. Friendly and reliable - the Java Shack is just like an old friend.

The coffee turns me into an apoplectic parkouring Clarendon Hurricane. Did you hear that!? Shhhhhh... There it is again. Did you hear? Did you hear!?

This is my favorite place in Arlington, hands down. I don't want too many people to find out about it for selfish reasons, but I feel compelled to write a review to support it because it's that great. The only recommendation for improvement is to offer a better food selection or to allow outside food. The food they offer is very good, but its a small selection. Though that's not the focus of the business, so I get it. Other than that, every other characteristic of it is spot on.

Relaxed neighborhood feel, usually quiet and great for reading or studying. The coffee and owners/staff are great.
