Be sure to visit Joe Momma's for the best coffee in town. Usually a wait in the morning but well worth it. You can enjoy watching the ocean while you wait. If you are having breakfast in the area, be sure to stop in for coffee first. You won't be disappointed.

Had two quick breakfasts here, one to go, on our recent visit to Avila Beach. Excellent service and their scones, (which I;m not a big fan of elsewhere) were delicious. I had a white chocolate one on the first stop and an apricot and almond scone on the second both with their dark roast coffee. My wife had the heat... More

Joe Mamma's! We are writing this review just as we finish the last superb bite of our Joe's Mamma's scone and coffee....TO DIE FOR! Our taste buds are still dancing! I thought my hubby was a little whacko when he dragged me down to this neat little corner coffee shop right along Avila Beach raving about a scone he'd just... More

Decided to stop in here after visiting Avila beach. There was a little crowd in front of us. Our order was taken immediately. The wait seemed to take forever. There was a sign that said patience pays and explained that even though the wait is long, each cup of coffee is hand made and takes time. The coffee was good.... More

Coffee was ok but had to wait over 40 minutes for a latte when there was only 3 people ahead of me. The pictures of Avila from the past were great to look at while we waited though.

Not everyone wants to be a--or needs to pay homage to--Starbucks or Peet's. We suggest you start your day this way: 1) take an early walk on Avila Beach from the pier to the rocks at the South end, 2) take time to pick up a few tan rocks, 3) marvel at the fun of dogs romping with their best...

Joe mommas uses intelligentsia coffee and always has a decent offering of single origin coffee and the blackcat espresso. This is a great local spot to hit for good coffee or espresso based beverages. They also sale coffee for use at home if you came without Java.

Quiet, cute little coffee house to enjoy a few refreshments. All the beverages at the big chains but with a local touch.

This place has potential and it's committed to good coffee but I would say it has some way to go to nail it. I found cappuccino quite bitter and a bit nothing. Keep trying. It's got a future!
