Brew-tiful Local Coffee Shops

Jordan Walker

The morning aroma of coffee

Whether you are a coffee enthusiast or just need an occasional energy boost, you probably don’t have a lot of trouble finding a good cup of coffee since there are chain locations such as Starbucks practically on every corner. But you should try and support some of our local coffee shops as well since local businesses provide several community benefits. We’ll be stopping at four local coffee shops all located around Downtown Vallejo.

Our first stop is Java Jax, a cafe located on Sonoma Blvd, that is within walking distance of the Vallejo Transit Center. They’re open from 7 AM to 3 PM on weekdays and serve (in addition to coffee of course) salads, sandwiches, bagels, pastries, hotdogs and milkshakes.

Next we have Moschetti, an artisan coffee roaster that’s been around since 1990. They serve not just Vallejo but the entire San Francisco Bay with coffee sourced from all over the world and a carefully executed brewing process that makes for unique batches every time. They are located on the corner of Solano Ave & Curtola Pkwy, within walking distance of the Maine St & Solano Ave and Benicia Rd & Solano Ave bus stops served served by Route 8.

Finally we have Panama Bay Coffee Company located in the Vallejo Ferry Building; they serve lattes, pastries and croissants in addition to a good cup of coffee and have been doing so since 1993. They are open from 5 AM to 6 PM on weekdays so even an early commuter should be able to grab something to go on the way to work.
