Fun vibe, lots of locals, great service and good food. Perfect combination for a good breakfast. Coffee was good and refilled often. We were there right as they opened and enjoyed visiting with the local people.

I want to start with something good, so I must say that the mint tea was good. That's how they earned my one star. Everything else was terrible.

We were greeted heartily by the staff and we seated in a booth surrounded by many fun collector cookie jars. The breakfast menu was extensive, and everyone in our group was very pleased with their food. Prices were reasonable and the food good, so it was a very good experience.

We stopped by Java Joe's during a business trip. Was greeted right away and invited to take a seat. Very fast, friendly service. Great comfort breakfast. Good conversation with the owner. Decor was quirky, with tons of snapshots of customers on the walls and tables.

I stopped here for a cup of coffee before taking a ferry to the island. It was packed with people waiting for a table to eat breakfast. Very small and busy place.

We went here for breakfast. The food is good, but the entertainment is so much better. Java Joe makes breakfast very fun. He is a real character. He is very helpful, when we asked a question for local interests.
