“Best way to start your day.”

How can you possibly beat a great cup of coffee and delicious quiche with the sun rising over the mountains shining on the Pacific Ocean. Great vibe. Beutiful location.

Incredibly peaceful and relaxing.

“Fantastic coffee and priceless view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I still think about that coffee- so good. You watch them make your coffee, you can appreciate their attention to detail as they craft perfect cups of coffee. They take a while to fInish your order, and a long line can develop, but it is so worth it! Once you have your cup in hand, you can step outside and watch the whales, dolphins, or seals play across the street. Left happy every time.

“Best espresso for 100 miles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Best espresso anywhere near or around SLO. True ristretto made with beans from Intelligentsia on a La Marzocco.

“Cinnamon Rolls and Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

My wife and I walked by Joe Momma's late one afternoon and were enticed by the wonderful aroma wafting from within. I remarked that we must have morning coffee and sweets the next day and made that our first order of business. Their motto is "Honest coffee. Worthy views." and it certainly fits. We had two of the house coffee's, called "A Regular Joe" and cinnamon rolls. Sometimes you want that heavy, thick, sticky cinnamon roll but other times you don't. If you want a roll with all of the flavor of the "heavy" ones but with a light, flaky roll more reminiscent of a croissant, then these are definitely for you! We loved them and cannot wait to return and try more items from Joe Momma's menu. The owner takes a personal interest in his store and we saw him in the store and around town several times during our stay in Avila Beach. He remembered me before I remembered him so even a casual visitor feels special at Joe Momma's.

“I'm sad, because I'm not there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Best. Coffee. Ever.

You really have to want it, because their coffee-making is definitely not the fastest in the land but HOLY CRAP is it ever worth it! Creamy lush deliciousness in a cup. Mmm, I want some now!! The former Starbucks barista who was with our group voiced the opinion of the group that the 'bucks doesn't even come close to being in the same class of coffee as that at Joe Momma's. Yummy!
