No heads up when ordering an $8.95 omelette! $2.50 for a couple of slivers of avocado. Tip: go next door to publix and buy a whole avocado for $1. Rip off Florida style. Won't be coming back Joe!

Joe's may be a bit hard to find as it is tucked away in the back of a large shopping plaza but it is worth the time and effort to find it !!! The food is fresh and very good, typical diner food. The servers are all very friendly and very good at their jobs.

Picked family up from a cruise. Had some time to kill before taking them to the airport. Joe's was recommended by friends that live in the area. The diner did not disappoint. The staff was friendly, the outdoor swing and table were comfortable, and the food was good.

Stopped by for breakfast before boarding our cruise ship. Almost didn't see it but well worth the search. A great breakfast at a very reasonable price. And free coffee
