I had the huevos rancheros one morning and they were scrumptious. The over easy eggs and ham are also delicious. Coffee is top notch. As are all their juices, their service and the general vibe of the place. And there's free wifi too.

What a great place to sit and enjoy people watching on South Congress St. The entire street is filled with unique shops and some wonderful restaurants, but there is no place and nothing like Jo's!!! There is no indoor seating, but on a chilly day there is a heater in the small covered area . The coffee is good as is the food and bakery items. If you are looking for an early morning cup of coffee and something to eat, we'll, Jo's was the only place open before ten or eleven in the morning and it is open very early. So if you want to feel a part of the Austin scene drop by Jo's any time of day and enjoy.

We tried Jo's twice while staying near South Congress and both times found the coffee and food to be decent, but nothing to rave about. We did however, really enjoying sitting there people watching on the nice patio right in the middle of South Congress.

I tried both a latte and their iced coffee and both were good, but not excellent. I guess they were at least fresh made as they took considerably longer to make than I would have expected (only the iced, the latte was pretty quick).

We also tried the breakfast tacos both times and while they were good, they were also nothing exceptional and I was fairly disappointed after the rave reviews I had found.

The atmosphere really was exceptional though. This is a place I would come back to again and again due to the relaxing atmosphere and superb people watching as the patio is right on South Congress. It also had a great neighborhood feel with people just hanging out chatting or working on laptops. We definitely came back the second time because of the atmosphere.

Nothing incredibly special here except it's just really good solid food and drink. The kind of place you'd frequent every day if you lived there.

We only had coffee, which was incredible and strong. Take your dog and sit outside. Enjoy the people watching.
