Tie-dyed- whimsy and great food!

I had passed by this little cafe several times and finally stopped. I can tell you that the owner LOVES teapots and cookie jars! We ordered the Crepe's- the Greek Crepe' was made with fresh ingredients and was totally amazing! I also had a berry soda which was made like one from an old drug... read more

Went for lunch but "the oven" wasn't on so no pizza or Mac-cheese available. Bummer. Tuna melt was very good and fresh fruit was actually fresh and tasty. Service was ok. Walked up to all outside tables waiting to be cleaned.

We have been to Java Joe's in the past, I think last Friday was maybe the fourth time. Things change, this trip the only thing that was the same was Joe himself. Service was poor at best and we waited a long time for cold food. I very rarely complain when present but DO NOT FORGET.....too many good local places... More

Very cute little place. Felt very homey had a great overall atmosphere. Owner was very sweet and stops to chat with the customers. Pizza was excellent as was the garlic bread. Portions were large we had plenty to take back to the hotel for leftovers.

Husband and I went for a late breakfast, around 11:00 in the morning. They were not busy. We walked right in and sat down. He ordered veggie breakfast wraps and fruit. I ordered granola. It took over an hour to get our food. A table near us complained about the wait. The waitress just kind of blew them off. After... More

Although we were seated right away, we were told that the kitchen was backed up and it would be 30 minutes or so to be served. We enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Our order was taken and our coffee arrived 15 minutes later. Breakfast arrived nearly 90 minutes later. Owner and waitress checked in periodically and were extremely friendly. When food... More

A trip to St. Ignace is not complete without a stop at Java Joe's. Joe must be the happiest guy in town and he wants to share - take a moment to say hello. Wonderful food and atmosphere. It's a mystery how Joe offers such an extensive menu in such a tiny place; it's Java Magic! Tie dye hippie VDub... More

We have been coming here for years! Granola Joe pancakes are the best! All the food it great & added bonus is when Joe is there to help with all your travel needs & Sandy is in the kitchen!
