This place by far is one of the best stops in St Ignace. The food is excellent, the place is clean, charming and the owner and staff are warm and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we had breakfast here on a Monday morning. While we were seated promptly, it took an hour to get our breakfast. The sauce on the Eggs Benedict was grim - gelatinous and tasteless. The coffee, while plentiful, was just so so. The staff seemed disorganized and really ready to close for the season.

Java Joe's offers a diverse menu. The server was kind enough to let me know some of their best offerings. The mac & cheese is spectacular. Service was a bit slow, but there's plenty to look at while you wait.

Another had an omelet which was equally good. The service, while a little slow, was entertaining. And Java Joe (an old hippie) was on the floor filling... More

Had breakfast here another day and the service and food were just as good as the first time. Joe remembered us and asked about our day. Personal service is such a great thing. Keep it up.

Happened upon this place while driving. Very quick service, food well presented and good value. Owner spent time with us giving us great ideas on what to do on a cold overcast day. Would certainly return for breakfast and may try the lunch or dinner menu

On the recommendation from family, we decided to eat breakfast here after the bridge walk Labor Day. We were seated right away and the waitress took our order. Beverages came and we waited ONE HOUR and TWENTY MINUTES for our food. We had patiences because of the holiday but the restaurant did not appear busy. Not sure what the problems... More
