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.
