Here at Java Flats we have taken pride in handcrafting wholesome and delectable meals and creating a relaxed and cozy atmosphere for you to enjoy since 2008. However, as we all know, 2020 brought lots of changes to business models across the globe as folks had to hustle to figure out how to keep going during the pandemic. To navigate those crazy times, we designed an online ordering platform and closed down our tiny inside dinning room. As time went by, we found that lots of folks love to order food online and there is a pretty big demand for drive up/take out here in Kodiak! To meet the demand and keep our efficiency up and our workspace size adequate, we ended up taking the space that was once our sweet little dining room and installing a second food line and an expanded area for baking. After being quite overcapacity in our tiny kitchen for many years the extra work space was a game changer for efficiency and creating a work environment that is more comfortable for our oh so hard working staff. Though we miss having the community space, we still love seeing you lovelies at the window and providing you with tasty treats and wholesome meals to fuel your adventures! (We do have pretty exciting plans in the works for opening up some community space again in the future, so stay tuned for that!)
In the Flats, our homes are tucked into the foothills of a horseshoe of mountains surrounding Womans Bay, beautiful in summer's emerald green, striking in winter's tans and whites. We love our community here where there is never a need to drive to town if you just need a cup of sugar, and If there is a traffic jam, it is usually because everyone has stopped to see a bear or two just off the road doing a spot of fishing.
I came to Kodiak almost 20 years ago on a lark, taking a break from college to pick up a friend who was here for a summer fishing job. We planned to spend the summer exploring Alaska, then drive back to Colorado together in time to continue our scholastic endeavors in the fall. Upon arriving I fell in love with the landscape, with the mid-July midnight sun, with the new smells and sounds, and with the seemingly limitless possibilities of life discovered through a first solo adventure. That summer Kodiak took me in and shook me up. I learned about wildness and community in equal measure and encountered serendipity face to face, Kodiak has taken good care of me through the years, and my hope in opening Java Flats was to give a bit of that nurturing back. I deeply care about the quality of your experience here and my hope is that by sharing a love for beautiful, wholesome, and tasty foods, Java Flats can make a positive difference in your Kodiak experience. May this sweet island home of ours smile upon you, as it has upon me.
