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.

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
