Always better than Starbucks

We often make this the mid-point on a coastal hike. The views can't be beat but the service is often a bit condescending. The coffee has declined somewhat of late.

I used to love this little coffee place. I've been living outside the country for the past 3 years and couldn't wait to return to Avila. This place just isn't the same...my latte was marginal at best, service was average (they forgot to turn in my order and realized after 10 long minutes), the windows were dirty (personal pet peeve)...

Great place to grab your morning cup of coffee. Be prepared to wait a little while as they prepare everything when you order so it is not as quick as franchised coffee spots. The service and product is worth the wait.

I loved the smiling faces as you walk in. Not like a lot of 20 somethings who are staring at their phones and look at you like you are intruding on their private time or something. The iced coffee I got was dead on perfect in flavor. thank you- needed it!

Stopping by Joe Momma's is a must everyone we are in Avila Beach. This is not just another coffee shop. Everything starting with the espressos is made to perfection.

I'm not sure what they do, but their iced coffee is the best I've ever had! There is nothing better than early morning coffee on the beach.

They serve coffee. They are more awake than you are. They seem happy to be awake. You are not happy to be awake until you have their coffee.

Just had an after lunch breve, but it was excellent and the server was very friendly. Next time I'll try the bacon/date scones. They looked scrumptious, but I had just finished eating. Very cute shop with cool old Avila Beach photos. Nice ocean front location.

This place is all about the coffee, and they offer some of the best from around the world. A coffee lover's paradise. If you want bathrooms and wifi, you'll have to go somewhere else, but they do have great scones and croissants to go with your coffee, and you can sit outside and watch the beach scene.

the coffee was good but it should not take forever to make an espresso. I waited for ever for what should take 2 minutes and there was only 3 of us in the place with 2 staff. No washrooms.
