Conveniently situated under our hotel. We only had breakfast here but we both enjoyed our experience. I suspect it could get rather busy and service might get slow, but we were early and had a good experience.

Although Joes garage is a restaurant and takeaway bar, I came here for a coffee. The decor was modern and inviting. The staff were friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the quality of the coffee. I'll be back!!

Not a pleasant experience ... spent quite a while trying to work out if they had any craft beers worth drinking (apart from the 2 big brewery offerings on tap Speights Gold & Steinlager) and luckily spied a Corona in the chiller behind the bar - staff were not helpful, although they did mention that they also had Black Mac...

My husband and I took our son here for his birthday (23). I had the Chicken Joe (chicken breast stuffed with herbs, lemon and cream cheese, with joe’s slaw, gravy and mash) and it was very tasty, especially the coleslaw. We all enjoyed our food and the staff were very friendly and efficient. It was our second time here and... More

Wonderful place for a late breakfast on a rainy day. Love the industrial look and buzzing vibe. Food and service excellent. Both of us enjoyed the Gorgeous George eggs on hash with bacon and hollaindaise. Coffee excellent

Ate here tonight. Ordered sirloin with chips and coleslaw. My wife ordered Pizza. We both really enjoyed our food and the place has great atmosphere. Very good service and would definitely come back here again. I was hanging out for a good feed and this place didn't disappoint.

We were staying next door at state hotel and stopped to check the menu but the service from all staff was so good we sat down. Food did not disappoint. Ceasar salad, hamburger, sirloin steak. All well prepared. Nice family atmosphere and not rowdy pub feel even though there is a bar. Can't speak highly enough of all the young... More

What great food. Friendly staff and very good coffee. We struggled to find something open early on Saturday morning and Joes Garage was so we tried it out. Thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts on both days!!
