Must must must try if you like coffee and tacos

My wife and I ate at this coffee show 3 days in a row. Their fried avocado breakfast taco is incredible. And their americano's are the best I've had in a long time. Friendly staff and delicious food and drinks. What else can you ask for?

Best coffee I've had in a while and the Tex Mex hot chocolate was amazing. Outdoor seating is a plus, as is the "I love you so much" graffiti on the building :)

You MUST, MUST, MUST try the Iced Turbo. And don't overlook the frito pie...made with BBQ that is dynamite! Sit outside and people watch. Then, go do the touristy thing and take an "I love you so much" pic for the facebook profile.

Nice place if you are strolling S Congress (1600-block) or visiting the Hotel San Jose. Feed the birds and people-watch

Spent way too much time looking for parking, beware! The coffee was good though. Strong and full flavored. Still, not sure I'd stop in just for coffee again... too much of a headache with traffic.

They knew what a flat white was, but didn't quite know how to make it...it was still good for American coffee though! I liked how you could choose to have local, organic milk for a small fee.

My husband and I went to Austin for our anniversary and had a few things on our to-do list other than BBQ, and Jo's was one of them. We were told we had to get the Iced Turbo and boy they weren't kidding. Iced Turbo = best iced coffee ever We were in Austin for 4 days and went to... More

Had the turbo special...it was ok, but then made me sick after (too rich/creamy). Service was meh. Seating area good for watching people go by.

This place is reknown for its coffee. A legend on South Congress. And across the street from the Continental Club. Glad I stopped. The line moves fast.

I guess you know why joes is so popular once you go- best lineup ie iconic graffitti while you wait in the fastmoving line for good strong coffee and satisfying breakfast fare :interesting tacos, good granola and baked goods, and of course, that breakfast essential, free wifi
