We’re excited to serve the Columbia, Missouri, community at our Just Love Coffee Cafe—a unique, community-focused coffee shop AND restaurant. We serve hand-brewed specialty coffee and fresh-made food, making us a favorite destination for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert options.
We’re excited to be part of Just Love’s mission to ‘Be a catalyst for love.’ It begins with our commitment to give back and support our local community, helping make the world a more positive place for everyone. Because of our love for getting together with family and friends, we want our shop to be the destination for the community to enjoy sharing special moments with friends and family, colleagues developing big ideas, or students finding an inviting place to study.
So stop in for delicious, hand-brewed coffees, Refreshers, and teas, or treat your taste buds to one of our hearty breakfast, lunch, or dinner entrees (served all day, we might add). We’re excited to meet you and share some Love with you.
Just Love Coffee Cafe – Battle Crossing is located at 5414 Clark Lane, Ste 100, and offers dine-in, drive-thru, or order on our mobile app to pick it up inside or curbside.
We look forward to getting to know you and, most of all, serving you!
