Family environment, tasty food, excellent service

The two of us stayed in Grand Pre soaking up the Acadian history and enjoying the views of the tidal swings. Very enjoyable. We would like to return. Joe's was a great stop for a relaxing meal.

Had a great inexpensive meal at Joe's Food Emporium. Don't be throw off by the name. This restaurant even please my mother (who tend to be quite picky).

After touring the gardens around Wolfville and checking out the Harriet Irving Botanical Garden (featuring several different local ecosystems AND a FORMAL landscape done with NATIVE plants) we found Joe's. The Digby scallops with mushroom caps were PERFECT and local! Some great local craft beer too.

We were exhausted after a long day so wanted some comfort food. this restaurant is on themain street of town, with a nice sized patio. We were told to pick a table anywhere. We chose the back corner.

My wife had chowder, which she really enjoyed but it was a small serving for the price. I had a cheeseburger and was astounded to find... More

I'm a repeat visitor to Joe's Food Emporium anytime I'm in the Wolfville, NS area. I've never once had a bad experience! Service is beyond exceptional...food is served fast and hot. The Famous skins are enough to keep me coming back forever! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this place!

The strawberry daiquiri was too sweet, but everything else was okay. Once we got our food, everything was delicious, especially the pancakes. The service was fairly crude,... More
