Stopped in for lunch, place was packed but we were happily accommodated at the bar until a table was free. Smart staff took our order so by the time we got to our table the food was served. Friendly efficient staff and great food with...More

I love Joe's. In Queenstown, want decent cafe/diner food that doesn't cost the earth? Go to Joe's. It is pretty busy but breakfast you'll get a table before about 9.15. We did an early dinner and got a shared table then. Great bratwurst sausages in...More

We went for breakfast and although it was extremely busy and no tables available, we were offered a coffee and a seat at the 'bar' table while we waited. The staff were attentive and friendly at all times. Whilst it was busy, we didn't have...More

Stopped in for breakfast and had the “Southland Sushi” (grilled cheese rolls - see pic) which were great. Coffee was one of the better ones in Queenstown (which overall I didn’t think was great compared to Wanaka up the road). Busy busy cafe with friendly...More

Was looking forward to a top breakfast but sadly it wasn't to be. Paying up to $22 per meal we expected full cooked breakfasts but instead there was no bread with our eggs, no poached egg options (only fried or scrambled), and very small portions...More

Both got the fancy pants porridge (the flavour of the day was roasted sliced apple with salted carmael sauce and nutty granola) was really good, perfect for a cold morning and very filling! Staff was super friendly, very efficient, everything came out quickly. Awrsome vibe!

Met up with a few friends here on a recommendation and I wasn't disappointed. The coffee was fantastic and the service was spot on. I would highly recommend this place.

Breakfast the morning of the Lions game. Varied and interesting (some would say quirky) menu choices. I had the bratwurst sandwich which was spicy enough to get my attention and was excellent. My companions were equally impressed. Also, everything was reasonably priced. WARNING: the portions...More

Joes is always busy so getting a table can sometimes take a while but it is worth it. The food is good and the service is friendly and fast. They also have good coffee.

Being very busy is a great sign of a good business, so don't mind this at Joe's Garage, 'cos it's worth it! The cute staff handle being busy very well and are quite accommodating to get you well seated and promptly served. Delicious and interesting...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.
