Visited recently with friends on a busy Saturday. Sat at a dirty table as was the only one available. Menus were practically thrown at us. We barely had them open when a rude English waitress asked us were we ready to order. We said we'd like a few moments before ordering, waitress grunted at us and left. Our table remained uncleared for another 5 minutes even though 3 staff members were standing chatting. Our teas and coffees were luke warm at best and all breakfasts were greasy......we wished we'd given the place a miss....truly terrible

Would like to recommend to all people in Athlone and to those that pass by or visit. The food is absolutely lovely, always fresh. Also there Is always a good atmosphere and the staff is so polite. It is easy to find and there is also place to park. My rating A+

This is, by far, my favourite cafe to eat in in Athlone. Between my partner and I we go here about 3-4 times a week and it never ever disappoints. The service is great, the girls are all so friendly and good craic, you really feel relaxed and looked after. The food is top notch, unbelievable value and the dinners/specials are better than I've had in many restaurants. Recently they have started doing meal deals where you get a special and a dessert for only €10, perfect for those of us on a budget (aka the majority of the student body!). In addition to this the coffee is to die for and although it may be a busy little spot (always a good sign!) you will always get seated and looked after ASAP.

We went in there one Saturday like we did every Saturday .Got the same breakfast as we always did . Always came to the same price. But this time we were over charged ten euro by the new waitress.. The manager was just standing there beside her and wouldn't say anything .We just said we would never go back there again if that's how they treat there regular customers..VERY DISAPOINTING..

Have eaten in Java joes a few times now and find the food lovely but few times now that we have had the same waitress and she isn't very friendlyat all. The lady with the jet black hair don't no her name cause she has no name badge. like we walked in and sat down and we were waiting 15 minutes before I had to ask her to take our order rudely she said yea be there in a minute so was like ok when she took our order she never said thank you once and while having our food she never checked on us once now it's only a small cafe so no excuse really with 3 waitresses working like just really bad service
