Guam Diner Bytes: Hava Java Cafe

by Ken Stewart
The Guam Food Guy

I can’t remember the exact day when I had my first chicken salad sandwich on a toasted baguette at Hava Java Cafe. It could have been sometime after owner Carol Ragan introduced her “Make Me A Sandwich” menu in the Spring of 2001. I do know that it is one of my all-time favorite sandwiches and what I consider a comfort lunch.

I’ve tried other chicken salad sandwiches, but no one has ever been able to match this sandwiches’ full depth and scope of flavors and tastes, especially when you have it fully loaded (the Pika Mayo’s a must have) and for me, the hot English mustard. I have Provolone Cheese and get the sprouts, tomato, lettuce, pickles, and the side of Hava Java’s delicious cole slaw.

The meal includes China Mist iced tea or iced coffee and will set you back just over $8. This sandwich is not just my favorite sandwich, there are many others who have the same affection for Carol’s creation. Thank you Carol for bringing this special joy to my world and to others as well!
