There are always lines at Jo's...watch the SoCo world go by, and eat in the open air patio (some covered). The baked goods are wonderful and the coffee creations are stout. The breakfast tacos are great - they start serving them at 8 AM and when they're gone, they're gone. If you want a coffee buzz, I would recommend the... More

Everybody else was going for the tacos, but I really loved their lattes and pastries for breakfast. Their spicy tacos were good later in the day. On the weekends it was fun to hear some of the bands setting up for a few hours of music. Yes, all the dogs seemed to really listen to this. LOL.

It seems this place is an Austin institution with queues for coffee and people taking photos under the graffiti "I love you so much" sign. I couldn't quite work out what all the fuss was about. The coffee was pretty average. It is conveniently located though.

There will be a line, but it moves fast and you have to try it as an Austin institution. Go for the tacos - they are wonderfully average, but also who doesn't love a breakfast taco even in an average state.

Walk up street café with great coffee and killer breakfast tacos. A must visit for breakfast if visiting the SoCo area of Austin. Check it out.

Jo's coffee has the best coffee in Austin. My favorite is their iced coffee. If you are looking for something sweet then I recommend the Iced Turbo. But everything is good. On a nice day it's a great place to hang out in their open air seating and enjoy South Congress. Tips: they usually have music on the weekends and... More

Great place to waste away the day. This is located in the heart of SoCo where there is shopping, restaurants, hotels and live music. There's wifi too so you can chill, drink coffee and do homework. It's a fav for the locals (like me).

Thank JacquelineRN
