Loved the this place...minus the bits of Liberal propaganda here and there....but hey, It is a coffee shop owned by a free American! Good menu and amazing Coffee, would recommend with no question!

I know it's a popular place for breakfast,but over a hour wait for your breakfast food is not worth it. When asking about your order they just looked at you like "is there a problem".Also when others get their food before you and they got there after you,that is very discouraging.The food is not exceptional it is basic breakfast food.Also all the staff smoking behind the building might help matters when it comes to getting your food in a timely manner.Will not suggest this place to anyone.

We got our coffee promptly. That was the last thing on time. Sat there for a long time for our order to be taken - finally had to ask for service. There was even a longer wait for the food. Had to ask several times about getting our order. Some responses were "in just a second" and "coming right off the grill". Neither were accurate. Eventually the food appeared. As you might expect, it was was barely warm and not very appealing or appetizing.

When paying the bill, we let them know of our displeasure. The lady manager/owner became very defensive and also was quite rude. She was surprised that we did not want to have an hour plus breakfast. We do not all march to the same drummer and we sure were not in the same tempo of this lady. Obviously she doesn't care if patrons wait a really long time for service and food. Java Joe's should consider putting a disclaimer on the menu warning folks about a lengthly wait for service and food. That's it - we will never return!!

I frequently camp just up the hill from Java Joe's and stop here for breakfast before setting out for the day. I have never been disappointed. Sometimes it is very crowded and I bring a book to settle in to wait for my food but most of the time it isn't that bad a wait. The food is good and inexpensive. i have also bought three very different teapots there, a wolf and cub, a leopard and cub and a Conestoga wagon. Not something you find everywhere.

The menu is tremendous list of enticing options and the place is colorful and appealing inside and out. But the service, though friendly, took FOREVER! From the moment we walked in the door, I sensed frenzy and chaos in how the place operates. We waited over an hour for our food, and got it only after I told our server that my husband was getting ready to leave. The food was very good, delicious, all that we expected...so hopefully next time the whole place will be running more smoothly.
