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.

The breakfast tacos and iced coffees are awesome after a late night out. Get there early though, they will run out and the line can get really long.

Went on a rainy Sunday morning around 10:30 and they had run out of breakfast tacos so we ordered a couple of muffins - on the dry side, which we can't say about the chairs to sit on. There is very limited seating and because of the rain, most of the seats were wet and exposed to the elements. Order... More

We spent a few days in Austin and stopped here for breakfast most mornings! The turbo iced coffee is good but dangerous, you should be prepared for the caffeine boost on that one.

Coming from Melbourne, Australia I am picky when it come to coffee. But this is the best coffee I have found in Austin. Located on South Congress Ave. The location is outstanding. After your coffee you can browse the local shops. I love a good latte and they have it. I usually order one extra expresso shot though to get... More
