I could not fault the full-English late breakfast I ate here, everything was freshly cooked and the portion was just right, not too heavy and overladen. The service was friendly and the cafe was beautifully clean. Recommended

My wife and I visited for breakfast following excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We certainly weren’t disappointed with a great selection available and some good quality food. Will certainly be visiting again. Milkshake was also superb.

Title says it all really, food was lovely and prices were reasonable. Friendly staff but had to wait about 40 minutes for our breakfast, not an issue but may be if you are in a rush! Would still recommend :)

Hi Elaine, Thanks for you message but I think you may be getting mixed up. Joes Cafe is very much an open business and this listing on tripadvisor is ours, not that for 'A cup of Joe'. Also no one called George has ever... More
