When my sisters and mom decided to go to Joe's Cafe for our weekly lunch, little did we know we were going to be transported into another world of entertainment and exuberance by the larger than life owner, Joe.

Hi everyone, we felt the need to stop at Joe's since it was rated highest in TripAdvisor for Orem (also went to Eliane's bakery - very good pastry). Arrived at 8am; we ordered 3-egg platter, french toast, grilled cheese sandwich (w/grilled onions), and their famous biscuits & gravy. The grilled cheese was the best - great diner food (not healthy,... More

The guy himself was the main event! The food was great too! I had Biscuits and Gravy and my sister had a Grilled Cheese. The Biscuits and Gravy had a nice sweet touch and the Grilled Cheese was the cheesiest. Joe definitely has a way with people...his customers LOVE him! While we were there, his customers brought him all sorts... More

My family and I stopped in to eat on our way to wyoming and all I can say was the food was the best. We had biscuits and gravy, omlettes, pancakes and everything was super tasty. Joe who is the owner and cook and his wife made us feel welcomed and even took the time to interact with our young... More

We couldn't find any place in Provo, where we had stayed overnight, for breakfast and ended up driving in a larger circle and came upon Joe's Cafe. It doesn't look like much from the street but do yourself a favor . . . don't pass up this gem! Not only was the breakfast outrageously delicious (and I run a B&B... More

Joe's Cafe's walls are filled with pictures of smiling guests because Joe can't hel[ but put a smile on your face. Originally from Houston he has brought great hometown cooking to the Valley. Great omelets, burgers, grits, bisquits and gravy. Don't come thinking you are going to eat light but if you want a meal where the owner really puts... More

Joe is a genuinely nice guy who really has a passion for his food and the people that he serves. I have had both breakfast and lunch here. Fantastic food, very full and robust flavors, but not overwhelming on the hamburgers. Delicious omelets... really fantastic. Good price too.

In a few words...Biscuits and Gravy!!!! By far the MOST delicious I have ever tasted! Many I've had before are pasty, white globs that resemble putty and taste that way, Joe's is magic. The gravy is slightly brown, creamy goodness full of flavor! The biscuits hiding underneath bring their own surprise - a slightly sweet taste as together they melt... More
