Reviewed July 24, 2014

Not everyone wants to be a--or needs to pay homage to--Starbucks or Peet's. We suggest you start your day this way: 1) take an early walk on Avila Beach from the pier to the rocks at the South end, 2) take time to pick up a few tan rocks, 3) marvel at the fun of dogs romping with their best friends--who can have more fun than dogs? and 4) end the outing at Joe Momma's. It's close, it's local, it has interesting and flexible seating (sidewalk or indoors) and offers a most pleasant, fun and tasty way to watch the early morning world roll by. It has limited goals and no pretension. The coffee and coffee drinks are good but perhaps not necessarily world class, the pasty is usually quite good but some days fresher than others and the smoothies, especially the berry-berry, are outstanding. Service has always been offered with a smile and prices are reasonable. If in Avila Beach try not to expect a fun, rustic, funky and well run local coffee house to be anything else? In our opinion, 1 thru 4 above are among the best reasons to spend a night in Avila Beach.

“Good coffee and pastries ”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Joe mommas uses intelligentsia coffee and always has a decent offering of single origin coffee and the blackcat espresso. This is a great local spot to hit for good coffee or espresso based beverages. They also sale coffee for use at home if you came without Java.

“Nice local coffee house”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Quiet, cute little coffee house to enjoy a few refreshments. All the beverages at the big chains but with a local touch.

“Trying hard but coffee only ok ”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

This place has potential and it's committed to good coffee but I would say it has some way to go to nail it. I found cappuccino quite bitter and a bit nothing. Keep trying. It's got a future!

“Good coffee friendly staff”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

A really good cup of coffee and tasty pastry, a great start to the day. Obviously a popular place to go as the seats outside were full and only a few seats available inside.
