“Best Spot in Town for Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

You can't beat Java Joes for breakfast! Great menu, the staff is entertaining. Great coffee. Parking is a bit of a squeeze but its worth it. Lots of fun and you always leave well fed and in a good mood. Highly recommended. We even stop here when we are just driving by on the highway.

“Fun and Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

We went several times to Java Joe's when we were in St. Ignace the last week of June. It is a fun place, especially for older kids. It is painted outside and inside with bright colors. There are all kinds of teapots and teacups lining the walls, all of which are for sale. The food is very good. We had pancakes, pizza, and several kinds of crepes while we were in town. My daughters said the crepes were as good as their French teacher makes (and she is French, and her dad is a chef)! I'm not a food critic (I like most food), but that is high praise to me. The pizza is hand tossed, the crepes are made on site. We did not try the ice cream, but there were pictures all over of customers eating absolutely HUGE ice cream sundaes! Now that we are home, I think that the thing they miss most about St. Ignace is Java Joe's. We will definitely return the next time we are in St. Ignace.

“Great family place....we loved everything about it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

My family and myself were staying in one of the hotels behind Java Joes and frequented Java's often. It has a wonderful quirky-casual-chic decor and a wide-variety of food to choose from! We often were in for breakfast, however we also had dinner and desserts a few nights. My kids favorites: chicken strips atop homemade mac and cheese....baked in crock, and of course the largest sundae they ever experienced! Making another trip to the UP in July and am looking forward to stopping in to Java's Joe's!

“Another fun visit and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

On our way back from Canada, we made it a point to stop at one of our FAVORITE restaurants in St. Ignace. Upbeat & casual, Kids will love this place. We usually stop for Breakfast, but this time, we had supper, but you can get breakfast anytime. Hubby had Crepes, I had a burger and fries and 2 friends had soup and salads. If you're expecting 5 star gourmet dining........ go elsewhere. But if you want to experience the 1960's again, with good food and a love of tea pots.............this is the place

“Always a great meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

We love Java Joe's for breakfast. Joe's got a new updated menu. We noticed that the prices went up on most items. The coffee is great! The food is prepared quickly and we love all the choices. Each of us has our favorites. Joe is great to talk to! He certainly kept us entertained. Its a "for sure" stop for us each time we visit the U.P. We skip the motel breakfasts in favor of Java Joe's.
