We went to Joe's for breakfast twice while in Queenstown. Both times the coffee was amazing and the food was even better. I wasn't sure what to order the second time we went as there were two options I really wanted. The waiter suggested I...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.
