Java Joe's has been a San Diego staple for 25 years. Known as a launchpad for the musical careers of such artists as Jason Mraz and Jewel, Java Joe's has operated out of a half dozen location over its more than two decades in America's Finest City. Most recently on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights, the famed coffee-house-turned-music-venue will reopen at its new home at 2611 Congress Street in Old Town this week.
Owner Joseph Fammini first opened his namesake Java Joe's in Poway in 1991. He then moved around a bit, heading to Ocean Beach in 1994, then to a new location in OB in 2000, then trekked east to the college area near San Diego State University for a two year stint. In 2008, after a 3 year hiatus, the coffee shop reopened in Mission Valley's Handlery Hotel, then moved to Hillcrest, then did an installment at a downtown hotel for a short period, then back to OB in 2012. Java Joe's next reopened on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights in 2014 before closing this past November 2016.
