Early or late, really great.

Morning coffee or evening ice cream served fresh and with a smile. A little pricey, but it's LBI and no nearby competition. Specialty coffees and teas are tops. Staff is pleasant . A solid pit stop at north end of island.

After my walks to the dog park with my dog, I always head to How You Brewin' for a different taste experience with my coffee. Can't wait until its officially opened for the season.

The food was tasteless. Guacamole had no flavor. Nachos came out soggy and no cheese. My kids quesadillas were made with low quality cheese and tortillas. I'm sorry I wasted my time and money at this place. I could have gotten better food at Taco Bell. The restaurant had no ice so we drank warm soda and there weren't any... More

Excellent coffee! Like Starbucks but NOT! This place has coffee or Edy's ice cream. Ice tea, frappes, lattes mmm mmm good. I recommend this little place to any coffee drinker. A little on the strong side but if you like it that way, it's worth it.

Stopped in and bought a mug, filled it with fresh brew. Nice place, really popular. A few chairs on the porch for folks to hang out with their dogs. Glad I found this place!

So happy to get a coffee float. Ice coffee with your choice of ice cream. That's how I remember ice coffee pre-Starbucks foo-foo cold drinks. It was excellent and wish more coffee shops would offer them. Try one if you've never had one. Too bad the interior is so cramped. There are no tables inside or out, only a couple... More

Mice place but pricey coffee, We liked Mustache Bill's diner much better. It is in a convenient location to a nice bayside birding area.

The upside is that all their tea, coffee and ice cream offerings are very good. The only downside is that there is no place to sit down and enjoy a leasurely cup and a snack. If you are looking for a grab and go, I recommend it highly.
