I asked for a cafe au lait, and although it is not on their menu, the barista made a nice cup of coffee. First time here, relaxing places to sit for a while, looking forward to going back.

When I'm home, I drink Peet's coffee and didn't expect to find similar quality at a coffee shop at the Jersey Shore. Wrong!! How ya Brewin' has an excellent espresso machine and clearly uses high quality coffee. I regularly go here for a decaf cappuccino and have never been disappointed.

Great coffee, great atmosphere. One of my favorite places. Locations in Surf City and Barnegat Light. Jamaican Me Crazy and Jazzy Java are my favorite flavors.

Good latte. Regular coffee not exciting. Pastries ok. Not for foodies. Friendly staff. Not much more to say.

Wouldnt go anywhere else on the island. Just as good as my NYC coffee place. Get the cold brew and a breakfast sandwich!
