I have been to How Ya Brewin' multiple times and was always pleased. The baked goods are delicious and so are the sandwiches. The ambience is very inviting as you can sit at a table and web surf. The staff is also very friendly.

This is the best coffee bar in surf city, they make delicious salads and sandwiches too. It's a block from the beach, it's a little on the pricey side though. Expect to pay 25-40% more because of its location.

How You Brewin is able to serve many thirsty customers on a busy summer morning. Their self serve coffee bar is great and they have a nice assortment of breakfast and lunch items, plus every kind of coffee and tea drink you could want.

I asked for a cafe au lait, and although it is not on their menu, the barista made a nice cup of coffee. First time here, relaxing places to sit for a while, looking forward to going back.

When I'm home, I drink Peet's coffee and didn't expect to find similar quality at a coffee shop at the Jersey Shore. Wrong!! How ya Brewin' has an excellent espresso machine and clearly uses high quality coffee. I regularly go here for a decaf cappuccino and have never been disappointed.

Great coffee, great atmosphere. One of my favorite places. Locations in Surf City and Barnegat Light. Jamaican Me Crazy and Jazzy Java are my favorite flavors.

Good latte. Regular coffee not exciting. Pastries ok. Not for foodies. Friendly staff. Not much more to say.

Wouldnt go anywhere else on the island. Just as good as my NYC coffee place. Get the cold brew and a breakfast sandwich!
