In 1991, Java Joe’s was located in Poway. The shop moved to Ocean Beach in 1994, then in 2000 reopened at a different location in O.B. (where Jason Mraz recorded two live albums). Eventually he moved to North Park for a while, and in 2016 he settled into the newest location at 2611 Congress Street in Old Town.
