Java Junction (also known as JavaThe Junction, and colloquially called JJ by fans) is a cafe that becomes renamed and is previously known as Hidalgo's, Culture Shock, and Squeezed.


Java Junction receives its name after the owner returns from Colombia, but is later renamed to Neutral Grounds.[2]


Java Junction is a spacious and brightly coloured store located under Studio A. Each wall is a different colour; one wall is white with a blue-and-green pattern, another is solid blue, another is has a brick design, and another wall is decorated with a dark purple and pink puzzle-like pattern. The front door is blue and neon green.

Treats can be seen on display at the front counter and purple couches sit at the front door's adjacent wall. Likewise, seats and tables are strewn throughout the store.
