Joe's tries hard to emulate a relaxed hippyish atmosphere and succeeds reasonably. The corollary is that you wait unnecessary long for an average quality beverage.

Who knew that there would be artisanal organic coffee in tiny Avila Beach? Even if you are just driving between Los Angeles and Northern California - jump off the 101 and get caffeinated.

Nice atmosphere and good coffee with a beach view. I've always been served by kind waiters. Not much seating inside if I recall right, but most ppl like to grab coffee and stroll on the beach. My parents would visit and morning walk to beach always included a coffee stop at Joe Momma's! You will not be disappointed

When we walked from the hotel,about a 1.7 mile walk and a great lunch, we need some coffee for our return walk. This establishment has a great location and wonderful views of the ocean. Overall I can not say enough about Avilia Beach and all it wonderful establishments.

we had coffee here 2 days in a row. it was fine, baristas were fine, not overly friendly and the coffee was like most places. I think they really get by because of the location. right across from the beach with a 2nd level area for great viewing. baristas both days were polite, if not friendly and the coffee was... More

Coffee via LA roasters intelligentsia, friendly staff, buzzing atmosphere. A few cents more than the chains, but worth it, especially as the ocean is just across the street
