This place just opened a few months ago in town and when we went in it was very quiet but the prices were very good and the staff were very polite.
When sitting down/walk in you notice the Joe's garage has a very unique ambience which is very comfortable to be in, the service was very prompt and the food was all very good except for the Lollie cake which was a bit dry, The Smoothies are to die for though!!

I can imagine as more people start make this their regular and it gets buisier it will be a even better experience.

For a few weekends this place became our regular, but despite good coffee and a thoughful service focused owner, the staff seem patchy and the food not up to scratch. Sure it's not crucial, but if buttered toast is an option with our eggs, and ask for it...why does the toast never arrive buttered?

Hollandaise that's almost butter, scrambled eggs...not scrambled but hot plate...but not cooked properly. :(

The couple of times we've been served by the owner, it's been great ( refund on badly cooked food) so what I think needs to happen is the chef needs some serious attention and the wait staff need training to deliver to the same level the owner does.

Probably not going back anytime soon.

Joe's is new in town. I've now been twice with colleagues. The service is great, atmosphere laid back (retro), coffee and food is excellent. Best cafe anywhere near Broadway. Highly recommend Joe's.
