I am a Cali native and have had coffee from numerous independent cafes and chains, but I didn't mind waiting a few minutes longer than usual for the creamy, complex, rich and satisfying flavor of one of the best cafe mocha drinks I've had in the central coast (sorry Black Horse, but it's true!) that Intelligensia brand expresso leaves no bitter aftertaste whatsoever, and to top it off I had this lemon blueberry coffee cake which they warmed up in a convection oven and served on a plate with stainless clutlery and tasted absolutely home-made divine, w/fresh blueberries and real lemon zest! I was there on Sat. 5/11 and they were moving customers through pretty quickly but like the owner says below, "if you're in such a rush, why [exactly]are you in Avila?" I returned the next morning (Mother's day) at about 8:30 am for another drink and that did take quite a while, but understandably busy; I bought some beans to take home. I would highly recommend JMC to coffee connoisseurs and anyone that likes good coffee or baked goods!
