Description: The original Joe's Garage opened in 2000, situated in an old Post Office sorting room in Queenstown. There are now seven Joe's around NZ and the concept is the same now as it was then- to be a Cafe that everybody can go to and enjoy exceptional coffee and food presented by attentive and enthusiastic staff, listen to cool music, and above all, have a lot of fun in an efficient "garage" environment.

This place is a must for breakfast or any other meal in Queenstown. Laid back vibe but excellent friendly service.

“Great service”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We arrived with party of eight for an early lunch. The restaurant was clearly busy but we were received and offered a smallish table to sit it and look at the menu while we waited for an 8 seat table to finish and leave. They were very accommodating, service was excellent, food was pretty good and they had some interesting menu choices. Bathrooms were clean and modern. All round a very good experience. Would go there again and would recommend

“Good coffee”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

A good place to get 'a nice cup of Joe', if you like! We only went here for coffee and Afghan cookies - the coffee was good and strong and the cookies were tasty. I really like the set-up of the place - the music was good and there were interesting random trinkets/decorations around the place. Maybe a bit noisy if you want to have a conversation with someone, but the place really feels lively so it's a fair enough trade-off.

“Great 'fry up' for breakfast”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Early morning breakfast here was humming already. Took a while to get an order in, but was worth it. Great coffee, big breakfast served with holandaise and sauce, delicious spiced sausage and great scramble. Really hearty, and tasty. Very busy little spot. Also enjoyed the diner style set up. Nice work.
