Joe's is always our choice for a hearty breakfast, with excellent taste and friendly service. The portions are generous and carry one through a day's activities (no need for lunch). Great menu options too.

The restaurant is more of a “down home” café. We had breakfast which was excellent. I tried the biscuit and gravy and my wife had the pancakes. The service was fast and friendly. Over all, it was a good place for a good and hearty breakfast. The place appeared clean and decor was average (a few too many patriotic slogans).... More

Open at 7: 00 am, my client from So CA recommended this eatery but I chose this sister company over the Paseo Roble location since I was driving to Big Sur for the day. Parking was no issue since it was early am and there's a private parking lot in the rear. The staff of waitresses are all friendly and... More

Wonderful breakfast. Everything was fresh and hot. My wife and I both had eggs, I had home fries(very good), my wife had hash browns (excellent), we both also had the thick cut bacon and sour dough toast. From the start of our meal with our coffee to the very end the meal was fantastic

Try the chilequilas, awesome! Hash browns cooked to perfection. Very friendly and attentive staff. Local favorite. If you visit the wine country of the central coast, start your day of tastings on the right foot!

Joe's has been doing it up right for years and its great for breakfast or lunch. It can get crowded on the weekends so keep that in mind. Weekdays are mellow and its well worth a visit.

She had a fabulous (and huge) club sandwich and I had the chili verde burrito and it is tops. I appreciate the recipe, and the burrito is loaded with tender pork and that sauce has just the right amount of flavor to keep me interested. I am going to update my rating and give this place the best chili verde... More

If you are looking for outstanding food not the place. If looking for atmosphere in a great town than this is the place. Basic menus, nothing outstanding but a good old fashion breakfast. Most of the time staff is great but do have their occasional abrupt servers who could care less if you are there. They greet locals very warmly... More
