Joe's is consistently delicious food. Everyone is friendly, and drinks are always refilled without prompting. Just be aware that you may be put on a waiting list when you get there, as everyone loves Joe's!

One of those local eateries with hometown atmosphere. We always find these places interesting as you look around at the locals dining and pick up the local flavor. Traditional american breakfast served with warm friendly service.

Joe's motto is "The best breakfast in town." And they stay true to that. We have been to both locations (Templeton and Paso), and the food is amazing at both. We tend to prefer Templeton since it is in such a country setting!

Fantastic food, but the coffee was so so. A must have is the cinnamon roll, pure awesomeness - worth a trip just for that alone.
