But it wasn't great. For me that is, everyone has different taste in coffee. The cafe also had a very blokey feel, which for two girls travelling it wasn't really our style. Only had a take away coffee so cannot comment on the food.

Great vibes, great tunes and bloody great food. Found this place on trip advisor and had to give it a go before we headed out of town.

The only thing wrong with going to a great coffee spot is that you have to wait for a seat. But well worth while it. Great double shot flat white & latte- thanks Joes Garage

Had breakfast, great food with excellent & friendly service. In a quiet back lane, very cold morning but nice & warm inside.

A nice little cafe kind of hidden away in the middle of Queenstown. Good cafe style food and great service with friendly vibe to match. Noisy but not loud. Great atmosphere. I went twice. Once in a large group and then on my own.

We had a great breakfast at Joes Garage. The service was particularly fantastic. We sat at the bar and one of the managers gave us lots of recommendations for our stay in Queenstown. I would highly recommend stopping by here for breakfast.

This back-alley restaurant is great for breakfast if you want to avoid the "touristy" vibe and prices. It's small inside with space to seat about 15-20 people. The staff is very friendly and this is my favorite breakfast spot!

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.
