Have visited here quite a few times when we have been in Stratford. Obviously very popular with Stratford residents and there is a very good reason for that. Good food, reasonable prices and very friendly staff. Always busy but they never make you feel rushed. Little bit off the main thoroughfare but well worth it.

tired of paying "central city" prices we walked several blocks south and at breakfast at Joe's Diner: Better food and coffee with much better prices.

It was a day of shopping on Ontario street with my daughters, but before we headed out, we need full stomachs. Joe's is a busy place but we didn't need to wait long to be seated. We ordered from the "All Day Breakfast" menu, the food was delivered promptly with friendly service. The next time you are in Stratford, take... More

We were on our way to a matinee in Stratford and came upon this spot, so we decided to stop. It is a cozy home-style cafe, not very large. Inside people of all ages were enjoying their meal. We were seated right away by a friendly server. We ordered sandwiches and soup and were served promptly. The food was delicious... More

We went to Joe's Diner for breakfast early on a Sunday. The meal was delicious, hot, quick. A great value, lots to eat. Waitress was great - thanks Lisa! I think I found my new favorite place to eat breakfast! Now I just have to try dinner there. We will be back.

Good food, fantastic value. Very popular with locals. Brunch (11 am) on Sunday saw long lines which we just beat. But value and quality would be worth the shortish wait
