“Slow service but good coffee”

Decided to stop in here after visiting Avila beach. There was a little crowd in front of us. Our order was taken immediately. The wait seemed to take forever. There was a sign that said patience pays and explained that even though the wait is long, each cup of coffee is hand made and takes time. The coffee was good. I got the Mocha and my Fiance got the tan lines. Each of us enjoyed our coffee. Was the wait worth it? That is questionable. But it was one of the better cups of joe I have had. Definitely better than starbucks, that's for sure. Worth a stop in, if you have the time.

Coffee was ok but had to wait over 40 minutes for a latte when there was only 3 people ahead of me. The pictures of Avila from the past were great to look at while we waited though.

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.

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.

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