My wife tried the Benedict; I had the oatmeal for breakfast. Her words: the taste was 'divine.' She rarely says that, so I took note. My oatmeal was marv, the blueberries the freshest. Gotta say we recommend this place. Coffee also quite good.

Just the type of cafe you hope to find on a road trip, but rarely do. Busy, but efficient service. Good (Allan Brothers) coffee; self-refillable. Hearty breakfasts included cheddar biscuits & gravy, egg sandwiches, steel-cut oats with fruit & nuts. All arrived timely and hot....More

Thank you for coming in for breakfast. Everything we make is made to order (including the hash browns), so it does take a bit longer. Thank you for the nice review.

We had sandwiches-they were fresh but just average. Not a lot of options, I don't know if that was because it was lunch time. There were no drinks or desserts on the menu. Service consisted of 2 young guys. They weren't very friendly but they...More

This is one of those wonderful road food gems that seem harder and harder to find. Leave the freeway and drive into the very pleasant downtown to enjoy well made espresso coffees, down-home cooked to order very good food with fresh ingredients from granola and...More

Little coffee bar and cafe, Joe & Sugars has good coffee, tasty scones and sweets, and quick & delicious lunches. Great place for a cold smoothie on a hot day, or a hot mocha on a cold day.

We popped in yesterday for lunch. I had the club sandwich and the wife had the potato soup. First, the meat on the sandwich was kind of sparse. Then, homemade bread was a bit dry and to make it worse, they topped the sandwich with...More
