Cute Coffee Shop

Adorable little shop with a nice variety of pastries and flavors of coffee. A few lunch options are available like sandwiches and salads, but definitely felt more like a place to sit, sip, and relax with a book rather than have a full meal. Comfortable couches with televisions and computers... read more

Adorable little shop with a nice variety of pastries and flavors of coffee. A few lunch options are available like sandwiches and salads, but definitely felt more like a place to sit, sip, and relax with a book rather than have a full meal. Comfortable couches with televisions and computers available. They also have fully stocked bookshelves.

breakfast sandwiches and coffee were great. A little slow for service...but worth it. Mid week was better than the weekend of course. Very conveniently located.

Whenever I go to How Ya Brewin?, the service is always good, and the coffees are excellent. It's a great local place that I am thrilled to have here in Surf City.

Went to Viking village branch in barnegat light. 16 oz coffee for $2. Bagels and baked goods. Buy a reusable mug for $10 and get your refills for a buck. Good for locals, vacationers, and the environment. Place was packed at 8 am on week day. Many regulars

Friendly and relaxed, always accommodating staff. Great coffee and snacks available along with fresh brewed ice tea. Relax on the porch or benches outside watching the happenings in Viking Village, or grab a drink and walk around. The fresh coffee smell will draw you there. Enjoy!

I went into this coffee house once, and now I won't go anywhere else on the island but here! Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The coffee is amazing and fresh and the baked items are really too. I recommend this place to everyone!!!

Love everything about this place...perfect spot to get a caffeine fix before heading to the beach. The owners are kind and the internet stations are very useful.

There is a lack of Starbucks on Long Beach Island, but How Ya Brewin does the trick. I stop by there everyday for an ice coffee. Great pastries to enjoy while you're enjoying your Java. Please note that their is a $10 minimum for use of a credit card.
