We’ve all been there.
Sometimes, you just need a little liquid pick-me-up. So when I found myself a little less than bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on a recent weekend, I headed over to Extreme Java Jungle Café
for a quick caffeine fix. Located across the street from the newly revitalized town square, and featuring a vast array of offerings—think smoothies, sandwiches, salads, beer, wine, desserts, retail and more—this downtown Roseville jewel is much more than just your average coffee shop. The café itself is a fun, eclectic mix of animal print furniture, high-tops, sofa lounges and coffee tables. The stage in the corner, decked out with band equipment, provides for nighttime entertainment, such as local bands and karaoke. Tucked into the far corner is also a kids’ area with toys, coloring books, reading books and board games. I ordered an Iced Vanilla Latte
, opting to make it “extreme” with an extra shot of espresso, which was deliciously creamy with just the right amount of sweetness. And if you need another excuse to visit this character-filled café, the ladies who served me my eye-opener were super cute, too. Extreme Java Jungle Café - Roseville, CA
