In PTown for Family Week--hundreds of LGBT families and friends. Went in with my three daughters to get breakfast treats. Disparagingly, Joe tells another customer, "the breeders are here." When I turned and looked at him, he tried to take it back, realizing there was nothing humorous about his remark. Too late, this proud gay dad with three daughters is... More

A Ptown staple; I remember when they started in their cube further down on Commercial Street. Great Coffee, the dark roast is the best. Great Pastries, loved the Bear cookies for Bear Week, usually partial for their blueberry buckle. Great Cruising, come on! Coffee, Pastries & a free Show! It doesn't get any better. Thanks to the folks at JOE... More

Bad experience - Our group had ok ice coffees and sat outside and the owner Scott, for all to see and hear, began to yell at a customer that she was not welcome there and he was going on and on very loudly. Many of the people there really cringed to see his rude behavior and the unkindness in treating... More

Joe is quickly becoming an institution in Ptown. I recommend only having the coffee or coffee drinks and avoiding the poor quality, undercooked patisseries. The patio is nice and quality garden furniture. The shop itself is spacious. Staff are nonchalant and I did notice they were unable to adequately serve foreign speaking guests (who spoke English fluently albeit with a... More

Besides a great cup of coffee, they also service very good sandwhiches and soups. Then go outside and people watch.

I loved their toasted bagels with cream cheese and a sausage patty, I went there every morning for four days! They just did a really great job with the bagels. But, the coffee was so-so. My partner enjoyed their croissants: all of them. His favorite was the ham and cheese. I definitely recommend this place for breakfast!

Great coffee and a great hang out with good people watching. Get up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and hang out before you take that morning stroll down Commercial Street.

Nice little coffee shop with tables outside. Entertainment free to watch the eccentricities of P Town. Great coffee.
