Excellent coffee. Pleasant outdoor seating. If you're eco-concious, bring your own mug, as they only use to-go cups otherwise. I solved this by buying one of their supercute mugs, and used it all three mornings I had coffee there!

They are so dog friendly that they even have a jar of dog treats next to the pickup window. Perfect place to get the first cup of coffee in the morning with a breakfast sandwich.

It's cliche but everyone wants their picture with the mural when in town. It's fun to take a picture or people watch. I'm in love with the iced turbo but I've never been bowled over by the snacks or service. I've never tried the food because there are many other appealing food offerings in the area. For me, it's just... More

We stumbled on this delightful restaurant after walking out of another due to the long wait. We are so happy we did! You know it's good when the line is out the door. The line was long but moved so fast. We ordered the breakfast taco's and pancakes. The fried avocado breakfast taco's were excellent and pancakes were large and... More

After a large brunch and walking around SoCo - we started feeling lethargic and tired, so we walked to Jo's after reading some great reviews. We just got the brewed coffee which tasted fresh and was very smooth. The outdoor seating is nice and cozy as well - great to people watch while re-energizing.

Stayed near by in the iconic SoCo area. I wanted a quick breakfast and found Jo's near by, so I decided to try the breakfast tacos. Ordered the Migas and an Americano. Wonderful way to start the rainy day. Great outdoor seating with a view of the street. Tried to leave but had to get a second order and stay... More

Strong coffee, wifi, and mist-fans. Cool and classic SoCo scene here. Was thrilled to learn they serve a proprietary blend roasted in my hometown of Portland.
