Great find on a Monday night in New Plymouth. Food is tasty and fresh. Can highly recommend the Caesar and Asian salads. Margaritas were delish. Staff are friendly and this is a good value for money restaurant/bar.

Although Joes garage is a restaurant and takeaway bar, I came here for a coffee. The decor was modern and inviting. The staff were friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the quality of the coffee. I'll be back!!

Wonderful place for a late breakfast on a rainy day. Love the industrial look and buzzing vibe. Food and service excellent. Both of us enjoyed the Gorgeous George eggs on hash with bacon and hollaindaise. Coffee excellent
