Quite good coffee, and the bluebery scone was delicious. There's some couch seating as well as stools and chairs. Nice central location right downtown.

I dropped in here on my way out of town after being directed from a local hotel. It was less than a block away and couldn't have been more convenient. The gals behind the counter were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. It was refreshing to be able to go to a local place instead of Starbucks while on the road,... More

Cowboy Joe is a coffee shop that has been a morning staple in Elko for many years. It's no Starbucks', but that's a good thing! Their coffees are great, hot, and fresh, without pretense (you don't need an instruction book to order). They offer a great variety of roasts, coffee concoctions, or simply a great cup o' joe. . ....

Best espresso in Elko!! Plus lots of other fancy foamed, frothed and blended coffee drinks. Bakery items to add sugar to your caffeine, too!!

Wonderful, charming, and friendly. What a treat when you have to travel early in the morning. Nice fire going and a comfortable place to sit outside of the vehicle. The people were so friendly. If I lived here, it would be my morning coffee stop. Everything tasted wonderful, chocolate chip scone and a maple crumble muffin. 5 star!

Needed a cup of coffee for the road so stopped here on a friend's recommendation. Great coffee, interesting store, friendly staff, inexpensive, in the heart of town, what more could we ask? Would definitely go again when passing through town.

Cowboy Joe's is a great local coffee tradition, right next door to the Cowboy Poetry Association. Good coffee and conversation. Nice art/photos on the walls as well as Cowboy Joe's paraphernalia. Next time in Elko, Cowboy Joe's it is!

If you are staying in Elko or just passing through, do not miss this coffee place. Delightful staff and the best coffee in the whole of Nevada. Don't drink coffee? Go anyway to check out the art work and gifts. Besides, there is always hot chocolate.
