We walked along the bike trail with the little boxer to the Java Station. As we sat at a table outside, the dig immediately knew where the dog bowls of water were. I went in to Oder our breakfast along with the free treat for...the dog. The breakfast especially the smoothies were delicious. My husband enjoyed his avocado toast as I enjoyed my fruit and egg sandwich.More

A great place for reasonable snacks, bagels and lox, fruit and coffees. Informal atmosphere, counter ordering, delicious food. Mainly for breakfast and lunch.

Had the fresh zucchini bread and chocolate chip cookies. Fantastic! And service with a smile. I had a long trip ahead of me so I bought extra for the road. 😀

Had some coffee and pastries here after church last week while visiting friends. The physical appearance is not very impressive but it gives off a good vibe. Down to earth coffee shop is what it says. Nice outdoor seating area and lots of tables and...some overstuffed chairs inside. Coffee and food were excellent.More

A really great experience eating and having coffee today. Cool little menu for food with sandwiches and breakfast burritos, etc... I got a tomato/avocado toast which was excellent! Tomatoes tasted like they were straight out of grandpa's yard.. The coffee was delicious and prepared with...care. Great foam on the cap! The ambience is nice, relaxed with a nice fireplace and some comfortable furniture... I will be going back!More

We got a pastry from the display, a hot chocolate and a coffee to go. Pastry and coffee served immediately, but had to wait quite a while on the hot chocolate. Only one restroom for packed coffee house. It would be a better place to...chill, or get a quick coffee than a quick hot chocolate. I did not try the lunch items, but they looked good.More

You have to try the Avocado tomato bread as this is absolutely a brilliant creation. Good Coffee and comfortable seating. Dog friendly is important and there are several local Meetups that happen here.

Java Station is our go-to coffee shop in Outer Santa Barbara; so if you're in the upper-State-Street area, it's worth a short drive out on Hollister Avenue toward Goleta. Quiet, airy, comfortable atmosphere, not touristy (they can't find it -- but you can now). Fine...barista service, good noshing -- both sugary and healthy, plenty of strong wi-fi and lots of seating, straight-backed or plush. Best morning munch: bagel of choice with cream cheese, freshly sliced ripe tomato, and a dash of lemon-pepper mix.More

What a breath of fresh air from most of the stale lifeless coffee shops I've visited. A fun and personable vibe. Had the Spinach Feta quiche apparently baked in-house. Delicious! Enjoyed very much my standard 6oz double shot latte...then had another. Highly recommend!
