“Truly Groovy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

First time there greeted enthusiastically by Joe. Coffee was the best and they kept it coming. Coconut pancakes alone are worth the trip. Then you have things like Nutella Crepes or Lobster Omlettes. For dinner the mac&cheese with choice of lobster, shrimp or chicken is not something Kraft makes. Food sounds simple and in a way it is but the selection is so vast I have done a disservice mentioning any of the items. The menu is printed on a small newspaper and reading all the choices and making a decision from the many choices proves quite a hurdle. One thing I am sure of is that you will love whatever you have and the staff will be friendly.

“Everything was good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

We had breakfast at Java Joe's twice. My friend loves crepes and thought that their crepes were good, as he had them two days in a row. We had pancakes and omelettes. They were good. We had lattes, and everyone seemed to like them. We did have a disagreement among us about deep dish pizza. We ordered the deep dish pizza with lots of toppings. It was not what we expected. I thought that the toppings were good, good sausage, lots of sauce and cheese. One of us didn't like the pizza at all. In general, the pizza crust was the weak link on the deep dish pizza. We will definitely return there for coffee and breakfast. The staff is nice. Joe, the owner, was there directing traffic in the mornings.

“Good food with a eccentric atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

We ate at Java Joes twice this past week. The first time that we visited Java Joes the place was very busy. We were served in a very timely manner with a smile. The second time was not as bust and we were not served in a very timely manner with a smile. The folks were friendly and the food was okay - the menu was quite large with many different styles of eggs and pancaked.Good place for a breakfast.

“Awesome Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

This was our last meal in St. Ignace before heading home. Any breakfast you order will be incredible.....our daughter loved the PB & J crepes on the kids menu. Banana walnut pancakes were awesome. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Owner come through and introduced himself and showed interest in his customers which is a lost art in most restaurants. Keep up the good work Joe! Would love it if you opened a restaurant like this in or near our town!
