The Scoop: It's not an accident that Java Nation doesn't look or feel like any other coffee shop in the area. Even though owner Henry Cabana has lived in the quaint town of Kensington his whole life, he has traveled to Europe and took notice of the unique coffee shops. Cabana has now brought the idea of a European coffee shop to his home town. Java Nation serves Vigilante coffee, a high-quality coffee roasted locally in Hyattsville, MD. Beer, wine, and cocktails are also served in addition to the café’s signature Home Brew. Java Nation has a full menu, with a chef originally from El Salvador creating dishes inspired from all over the world, including pupusas, crepes, and breakfast and lunch sandwiches. For food, we recommend the chocolate croissant, which has a crisp buttery exterior and a delightfully soft, bittersweet interior. For beverages, we recommend the hot chocolate and the cappuccino. The hot chocolate tastes deliciously homemade and the cappuccino allows for both the tastes of the toasty espresso and creamy milk to be experienced. A trip to Kensington is well worth this worldly coffee shop in a small suburban town.
