Coffee and burritos? It might seem an unlikely combination, but then again, this locally-owned spot—which is fairly new to the Hilton Head restaurant scene—defies labeling. Tucked into the Village at Wexford shopping area, Java Burrito is a Mexican grill-cum-specialty coffee bar-cum wine bar and more. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting thanks to the rustic-casual decor and communal tables that accent the interior. All in all, this is a spot that’s perfectly suited for enjoying good conversation over a cup of coffee brewed from locally-roasted organic beans…or a farm-fresh burrito…or both.
Though Java Burrito may be somewhat difficult to label, it’s definitely easy to recommend!
