The Java Cafe at Shades of Green is a great place to grab a quick breakfast on the run to the Disney World theme parks, or a snack upon your return.
The Java Cafe is located in the main lobby right by the Front Desk.
They offer standard Starbucks drinks and snacks as well as ice cream treats and beer, wine and cocktails.
When facing the front desk turn around and you’ll see the Java Cafe, it’s impossible to miss.
Have Breakfast In Your Room
For our family, in the morning I usually head to the lobby to get coffees and pastries while others are in the shower. Then we can all get fueled up while getting ready, then head right to the parks!
Hours – 6 am to 10 pm

The #1 draw for SoG dining is lower price. In exchange for lower price you get lower quality, especially at Mangino’s and Garden Gallery. The convenience of the Java and Express Cafe’s is wonderful and you get great value. The friendliness and attentiveness of all dining staff is also great.
“Java Cafe coffee was quick, and nice to have in the lobby.”
“More syrup choices would have been nicer and the Java Cafe.”
“The Java Cafe in the lobby is nice to have there but needs to be open later. And the price of the items need to be lower. Coffee was too expensive as well as the ice cream. Maybe you need to consider taking the Star$$$bucks, out and getting someone else to run it. The employees were very nice.”
