If you ever happen to be walking around the quad during a school day, chances are you’ve seen the multitude of food trucks lined up around Gorgas and Reese Phifer. From Mexican to burgers or coffee, these unique trucks have something for everyone. As a foodie enthusiast and avid user of my foodstagram (@em_eatz), using my Dining Dollars for these trucks has become one of my favorite past times in between classes. One of my absolute favorite trucks, however, is Joyful Java. Joyful Java specializes in coffee drinks, bagels and avocado toast. The flavors and ideas they bring to their food set them apart from any other food truck on campus! So what should you order in between your classes? I’m here to tell you my favorites!


Caprese Avocado Toast


The Caprese Avocado Toast is by far my favorite food option here at Joyful Java. This toast is like your typical avocado toast, but it’s been loaded with mozzarella and tomato, and then finished off with a flavorful balsamic dressing. I’m an avid Italian food fan, so it’s no surprise that this unique choice caught my eye when I first started coming to the truck last semester. This toast is always my go-to after my classes get out at Reese Phifer.



Peanut Butter Cup Latte


If you’ve ever heard of a match made in heaven, it would be this latte and avocado toast! Nothing says “pick-me-up” better than sipping on this delicious latte mid-afternoon. I’m a huge coffee fan, especially when there’s anything chocolate involved, and I’m absolutely in love with this latte! While I’m more of an iced coffee gal no matter the season, I’ve found that I prefer this latte better hot. The peanut butter flavoring is the perfect way to help you through the day as well as having a tasty drink throughout.


Regular Avocado Toast with Egg


If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a huge avocado and avocado toast enthusiast! While the Caprese Avocado Toast is my favorite item off the menu, my second pick would have to be the Regular Avocado Toast with Egg. Their plain avocado toast is phenomenal, especially due to their choice of spices and flavoring on top. The regular avocado toast has the option to add either egg, bacon, or both on top. I love the choice of the hard-boiled egg on top, as I find it so tasty!

Well there you have it, those are my top 3 picks at the Joyful Java Food Truck. If you haven’t checked them out yet, it’s a MUST!
