Great breakfast and lunch selections supplemented by fantastic coffee, espresso based drinks and tea. Everything is fresh and attended to by a great and enthusiastic young staff. Very informal and comfortable environment. Can be a line in the morning, but it moves fairly fast, and sometimes, on cold or rainy days, all the tables are occupied, so if you are... More

I love this place - it's in my neighborhood and I'm there at least once a month. I love how they take something like a traditional egg sandwich and make it amazing with their tomato jam -- just the right mix of spicy, savory and sweet. There seems to be a special touch to all the dishes. I'm gluten free... More

We were looking to have breakfast and found this place. Great neighborhood spot, easy parking, and good food. Could have hung out all day here. Great vibe. Avocado toast is worth coming back for!

JoLa is a little cafe in the heart of a beautiful walkable neighbourhood. I stayed at a nearby VRBO and JoLa was the perfect place to start the day. There are plenty of inside and outside seating. Sitting near the kitchen, you can watch how a group of five fluidly move behind the bar to make espresso drinks and prepare... More

Try the breakfast burritos. If it's a nice day, the outdoor tables are great. Great place to hang out in a very quiet residential neighborhood.

Ordered an Americano but wanted to try some of the many baked goodies offered as well. Wifi was fast and the entire place clean and inviting. Oh, the Americano was pretty good too!

I stopped in with family before heading out to the airport. I ordered the country breakfast burrito. It was excellent. Filling and delicious. Pretty good coffee with a fun assortment of pastries (e.g., figgy buckwheat scone).

Great coffee, fantastic biscuits and gravy (best we have ever had), friendly service in a modern contemporary space. What more could you want in a local cafe?

Good friendly service. And fast. Easy to find parking on a Saturday morning, within a block. Had the avocado toast with an egg and a hint of hot pepper flakes. Delicious.
