I thought the coffee here was pretty good and the interior is clean, warm, and friendly. The live jazz on Saturday mornings is also quite pleasant. Didn't try any of the food other than a cookie, which was large and chocolaty -- what more could you ask for?

It could also be that I thought the coffee was good because I had a cappuccino with two shots of espresso after a long drive...mmmm...caffeine.

As do most towns in America these days, Visalia has more than it's share of Starbucks and other coffee shops.

Visalia Coffee Company is just like all the others with very few exceptions. It's on its third owner in 10 years. Until 10am you can buy a breakfast sandwich. Actually you have several options and they are all made to order.

Coffee, cocoa, tea, smoothies are all like any other place.

The only thing that makes this place different is that on Saturday morning from 9:30am to 11:30am they have what is known as "Your Morning Cup of Jazz". Richard Garoogian, the keyboardist of the smooth jazz group Zzah, plays piano, and usually Larry Allen plays excellent stand-up jazz bass, and Greg Gundy plays drums. Patrons are encouraged to add percussion. From time to time there are other sit-in players. The excellent jazz gets everyone's week started with some good toe-tapping and fun.

Eric says:
Sounds nice -- they have a similar thing here at Berkeley. At Cheeseboard Pizza, a small jazz band plays songs to entertain the patrons waiting in line for lunch.
