I spent one year living in Athlone, next to this bar. It was the "refuge" in bad days, with its nice atmosphere and good and fresh food. The furniture reminds the 50's cafè, coloured, surrounded by a lovely sound. It's perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch, every dish is simply genuine and tasty. I really recommend it (:

The food in Java Joe's is always fresh and ever changing, without losing the old reliables. Easy access from the main road and good car parking facilities. Great for lunch.

Have been here a good few times for breakfast but was in for lunch with the family a few weeks ago and had to comment on the gorgeous chicken goujons and super tasty chips, fab, just the job if you fancy a decent sized portion of pure comfort food, delicious, thanks and will definitely be in for lunch again soon!

Called in on my way to Galway, as my last visit was the memorable! I had the daily special which was gorgeous! I will be making a point of returning when I make this journey again! The food was fresh, piping hot, and extremely good value for money!

We pulled off at Athlone for lunch at Java Joe's which was full of students and lecturers, being directly opposite Athlone's Institute of Technology - the only higher education establishment in central Ireland. Being student orientated it's cheap and cheerful. If you're travelling on Ireland's new motorway network keep in mind that they haven't got service stations yet. There aren't... More

Visited recently with friends on a busy Saturday. Sat at a dirty table as was the only one available. Menus were practically thrown at us. We barely had them open when a rude English waitress asked us were we ready to order. We said we'd like a few moments before ordering, waitress grunted at us and left. Our table remained... More

This is, by far, my favourite cafe to eat in in Athlone. Between my partner and I we go here about 3-4 times a week and it never ever disappoints.

We went in there one Saturday like we did every Saturday .Got the same breakfast as we always did . Always came to the same price. But this time we were over charged ten euro by the new waitress.. The manager was just standing there beside her and wouldn't say anything .We just said we would never go back there... More
