This was my first stop the morning I went to SoCo district. The shops hadn't opened yet, so I got coffee and a breakfast taco. Taco was good. People watching was great. Also love the atmosphere and outside tables. I should have tried a turbo, but wanted something lower calorie.

The South Congress Jo's Coffee is my favorite coffee shop while in Austin. The proximity to the South Congress shops, assorted outdoor seating, easy internet, and potential for people-watching improve the already wonderful Iced Turbo.

Jo's has great coffee and sweets. Prices are reasonable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The vibes are very warm. Other customers are interesting and friendly. Just a comfortable place to enjoy a cup of coffee or bite to eat but best of all is the people watching. People Watching at Jo's is priceless. I always enjoy myself at Jo's... More

Stop by and grab an iced turbo. You won't regret this delicious kick start to your morning! They also have a nice outdoor seating area that's great for people watching.

Excellent coffees & varieties. Helpful and friendly staff, not easy when you're slammed with a line around the building. (There is cool graffiti art on the side, btw.) I had an iced coffee and a sandwich. The sammy could have had tomato & a condiment to make it more flavorful. But good quality nonetheless. Lots of covered outdoor eating area.... More

Nice place to people watch. I really want to say I'm sorry to Julia Robert's husband, for bothering him at Jo's. My girl recognized him and I just started talking. I'm such a tourist :)

A must stop & see at least once. Grab a picture next to the "I Love You So Much" art on the side of the bldg & stay for the yummiest iced coffee - served up by this locally owned icon. Get there early before the breakfast tacos sell out. They taste good & not too hard on the pocketbook... More
