The menu is rather focused on egg and unremarkable meat choices. The setting feels cramped and ventilation is an issue.

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 fruit to Eggs Benedict.

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 a toothpick size squirt of mayo. I had to ask for extra just to get... More

Stopped in for lunch. Great place for coffee or tea and a sweet roll. I had soup and a sandwich. Fresh ingredients and homemade soup. Very tasty! We will come again.

I live in La Grande and eat at this special place frequently! I always take "out of town" friends and visitors here for lunch. The best sandwiches and homemade soups are on the menu. Joe and Sugar are precious and always greet you with a smile......and Joe even sings occasionally as he delivers your meal....and the card tricks are unique... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Service was good even though lots of locals on-site. I had the club with a side of fresh pineapple which really set off the yummy ham in the club. My wife had the turkey sandwich.She ate half and saved the rest for dinner. Both sandwiches were ample and above average. Overall, a pleasant experience.

I was visiting friends from La Grande and we came here for a lunch and two other times for coffee. For lunch I opted for soup and half a sandwich, delicious and more than enough to eat. The coffee was lovely and you could refill as often as you liked. The owners are so friendly and happy to see you... More

What a find! Driving through La Grande and it was lunchtime. We decided on Joe & Sugars. So glad we did! The food was outstanding. The HALF tuna salad I ordered came with fresh, crisp greens and two TWO! mounds of tuna! It exceeded my expectations, to say the least. The other two in my party were just as thrilled... More
