There are thousands of corporate coffee houses in the world,  but none like the one at 2922 Geer Rd.  Located just three blocks from California State University, Stanislaus, locally-owned House of Java has drawn customers all of ages for over 25 years and continues to ensure an unforgettable cafe experience like no other in town.

This uniquely local eatery was named the Turlock Journal 2012 Readers' Choice for best coffee shop.

“With our hometown charm and fun staff, we go to great lengths to make the customer’s dining experience a special one,” said House of Java owner Dora Lucas.

But the coffee and Internet access aren’t the only things that draw Turlockers to the Geer Road eatery.  The House of Java has a full breakfast and lunch menu — including the house specialty, daily made quiches.  

“We continue to look for the newest and most innovative recipes,” said Lucas.  “One of our popular dishes in our lunch menu is our Passion Pear sandwich that includes a cream cheese spread on our buttery croissant.  In the sandwich we have turkey and bacon and for the finishing touch, we had fresh sliced pears.”

The House of Java restaurant is a crowd favorite, especially among college students.  CSU Stanislaus graduate Carly Beard said she comes to House of Java to unwind and enjoy quality time with friends.

“The House of Java is like the diamond in the rough,” said Beard.  “Not a lot of people know of all the wonderful food they have to offer.  I enjoy coming regularly because it has a grandma’s kitchen feel to it.  I can work on projects, read a book, or catch up with friends.  It’s definitely the hangout spot in Turlock.”

The coffee shop and restaurant offer something extra as House of Java shares an open wall with the House of Yogurt. The frozen yogurt side offers unique recipes and hand-mixed ingredients. A taste of this creamy deliciousness is also offered at the end of every House of Java meal.

“I want people to feel at home when they come and visit us,” said Lucas.  “We are all one big family.  Many of the staff has been working for me for many years and I consider every one of them as family.”

 “We are thankful for all the support and loyal customers we’ve had over the years,” she added.  “Thank you for supporting my dream and letting my staff and I serve you for 25 years.”
