great service and a favorite with the locals. Food is fresh with big portions. Gets crowded so go early. We love the homey atmosphere.

If you are looking for a place for a reasonable breakfast or lunch, Joe's is the place. Breakfasts are hearty with very large portions. The California omelet is a true winner. The oatmeal with raisins cooked in will keep you content for the whole day.

Joe's is consistently delicious food. Everyone is friendly, and drinks are always refilled without prompting. Just be aware that you may be put on a waiting list when you get there, as everyone loves Joe's!

One of those local eateries with hometown atmosphere. We always find these places interesting as you look around at the locals dining and pick up the local flavor. Traditional american breakfast served with warm friendly service.

While we were at all the vineyards, we asked around for restaurant recommendations. The consensus was to go to Joe's. We're so glad we did. It was PACKED on a weekday and it was all they promised--tough waitresses, scowling cook, fast service, bold coffee. If you're wanting gourmet, this isn't your place.

ALthough I am not big on breakfast foods, Anytime a (non-chain) breakfast joint serves waffles and chilaquiles, it's a hard choice, but this time i chose the chilaquiles. Yummy and plentiful. felt like taking a nap afterwards. Everyone in our party was pleased, as they have something for everyone. My Mom got her veggie omelet and cottage cheese side. potatoes... More

Joe's motto is "The best breakfast in town." And they stay true to that. We have been to both locations (Templeton and Paso), and the food is amazing at both. We tend to prefer Templeton since it is in such a country setting!

Wonderful breakfast and the cinnamon rolls are great!! The hash browns were the best I have ever had. Definitely fresh, NOT frozen and then warmed up. The Eggs Benedict was very tasty. There were 7 of us out for breakfast and everyone said their food was very, very good!

My wife and I were on our way to Los Angeles on 101 and stopped and asked a group of bicyclist where a good place was for breakfast. They recommended Joe's on Main Street and what a wonderful surprise. I had the Efgs Benedict and my wife had the Breakfast Burrito. We each took half of our order to go... More
