Cowboy Joe is a coffee shop that has been a morning staple in Elko for many years. It's no Starbucks', but that's a good thing! Their coffees are great, hot, and fresh, without pretense (you don't need an instruction book to order). They offer a great variety of roasts, coffee concoctions, or simply a great cup o' joe. . ....

Best espresso in Elko!! Plus lots of other fancy foamed, frothed and blended coffee drinks. Bakery items to add sugar to your caffeine, too!!

Wonderful, charming, and friendly. What a treat when you have to travel early in the morning. Nice fire going and a comfortable place to sit outside of the vehicle. The people were so friendly. If I lived here, it would be my morning coffee stop. Everything tasted wonderful, chocolate chip scone and a maple crumble muffin. 5 star!

Needed a cup of coffee for the road so stopped here on a friend's recommendation. Great coffee, interesting store, friendly staff, inexpensive, in the heart of town, what more could we ask? Would definitely go again when passing through town.

Cowboy Joe's is a great local coffee tradition, right next door to the Cowboy Poetry Association. Good coffee and conversation. Nice art/photos on the walls as well as Cowboy Joe's paraphernalia. Next time in Elko, Cowboy Joe's it is!

If you are staying in Elko or just passing through, do not miss this coffee place. Delightful staff and the best coffee in the whole of Nevada. Don't drink coffee? Go anyway to check out the art work and gifts. Besides, there is always hot chocolate.

The daily brew is self serve and the pot was empty, had to wait in line to advise them to fill it and then to wait even longer for the staff to actually take action. This place is fine if you have all the time to wait around for them to take action, otherwise go someplace else that has coffee... More

One of the few espresso type places that offers the old style large glass mugs for cappuccinos to be consumed there. Their coffees are good and fresh, they offer free wifi and you can order a small pastry if you have a hunger pang.
