What an awesome start to our holiday - the food was so good and the atmosphere was warm, buzzy and inviting. The homemade museli was divine and hubby loved his huge breakfast. Cheers - we will be back

Baby it's cold outside! But Joe's have hot coffee, hot bacon rolls and more coffee. Friendly singing staff, open kitchen where I can watch my eggs being made, and heckle the staff. Perfect.

Popped in the late afternoon for coffee whilst the wife was shopping. Coffee was nothing to write home about. Service was friendly and staff were from different parts of the world. The most disconcerting part was the greasy smell from the kitchen. Based on the...More

The original Joe's Garage opened in 2000, situated in an old Post Office sorting room in Queenstown. There are now seven Joe's around NZ and the concept is the same now as it was then- to be a Cafe that everybody can go to and enjoy exceptional coffee and food presented by attentive and enthusiastic staff, listen to cool music, and above all, have a lot of fun in an efficient "garage" environment.
