“Great Orange Juice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Yes, I know this is a coffee place with a wonderful view of the ocean, with good coffee and pastries, is doggie friendly, with outdoor and indoor seating, that has souvenir t-shirts and conviently located right across the street from the beach, and if the timing is right you can park right outside... but DO get the made right in front of you freshly made O.J.!

“Wonderful beverages!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Joe Momma's Coffee is in a great location with nice views of the ocean and beach. The staff provided excellent service and were warm and friendly. I enjoyed a cafe mocha, which was delicious and my hubby had the blended strawberry lemonade, which he loved.

My only complaint is that some of the tables needed to be wiped down as they had crumbs leftover from pastries other customers had eaten. Plus, part of the 2nd story seating area is dark and uninviting... It looks like a bat cave.

Right down the street from the Inn at Avila, Joe Momma's Coffee provided an excellent morning Latte and cinnamon role.

“Good coffee but terrible staff conflict- very uncomfortable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Sure the coffee was fine (really no better than any other coffee place) but once the boss came in, he started yelling at the employee. It was seriously unprofessional and could be heard outside the establishment. This is not the first time I have heard this. Other people I know have experienced the same thing. It could be so peaceful to sit outside on the sidewalk and enjoy the ocean with your coffee but I did not experience that. I will never return because I have no need to listen to people be demeaned. Regarding outside seating, the tables and chairs are actually located on the sidewalk so people are walking between the tables. It is nice that there is a bowl of water for the dogs who walk by but certainly not worth what you might encounter.

“Cute funky place, good coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Tables outside on walkway, nice way to enjoy coffee and hang out by the beach. Avila beach area is pretty small, but has nice walkway and cute shops and restaurants. Worth a visit.
