One of the few places to get a really good cuppa coffee on the island during the winter. The best way to describe the atmosphere is: Warm and Comfortable." Cheery staff ready to provide service at the counter. The display case full of confections is a dieter's nightmare! Each is fresh and tasty. Have not tried the lunch menu yet,... More

This coffee shop is a must if you need a great cup of joe. Breakfast sandwich was okay. The egg may have been artificial and not fresh but the bagel was really good.

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.
