Huge Menu......lots of breakfast options

Great locally owned restaurant with a huge breakfast menu. If you like pancakes this is the place. They have a rediculous number of unique cakes to choose from. Coffee is great. We've ate here three times and each time the place is packed. Joe (owner) and his wife are always there and are... read more

A group of coworkers recently ordered breakfast. I had the avacado bagel. The menu said it was Roma tomatoes, avacado, and onions on a bagel with cream cheese. I asked for no onion, and was really looking forward to it. I was disappointed to see what I got... A cheap plain bagel, that was not toasted, CANNED tomatoes and a... More

JavaScript Joes has been a favorite for years!!! Their crepes are legendary! So are the waffles and everything else I've tried there. The Italian ice is bomb and my personal favorite drink there is the white knight!! So delicious!

Java Joe's coffee house is a unique eating experience with an eclectic menu which matches the Coffee Pot, Cookie Jar Decor. There is truly something for everyone on the menu, and the service is very personal. The portions for the price are a true value, and this is a family friendly dinning experience. Truly worth the stop up to other... More

This is a small, cluttered Mom & Pop place with great homemade food. Try the daily specials -- I had lobster eggs Benedict, which was yummy. The menu is very creative. It can be very crowded, so there may be a wait.

I can't believe all of the great reviews that I read that got me to stop in here. The service was horrible and they weren't busy. Coffee was served cold. The food was mediocre with the exception of the mac and cheese with lobster. This place is ok if you have to eat breakfast, but I wouldn't wait in line... More

We went here for breakfast. Just a very small restaurant, like a mom and pop place. They have more seating outside in warmer weather but we went in October. It was sure worth the wait! My husband is very fussy about his biscuits and gravy, and he said they were the best he ever had. I had a skillet breakfast,... More
