Description: The original Joe's Garage opened in 2000, situated in an old Post Office sorting room in Queenstown. There are now seven Joe's around NZ and the concept is the same now as it was then- to be a Cafe that everybody can go to and enjoy exceptional coffee and food presented by attentive and enthusiastic staff, listen to cool music, and above all, have a lot of fun in an efficient "garage" environment.

A brunch must in Queenstown. Good satisfying food... not the fancy "i do yoga and brunch" feel... Good big builders mugs of tea and nice tasty big breakfasts.

The staff are full of energy and are always really friendly and on the ball with taking your order and asking how your food is.

If there's only a couple of you, sit at the breakfast bar - it's nice to watch the food be prepped and all the chef team are really friendly and have a laugh with you too.

Went for a very late breakfast and was not disappointed! Awesome friendly service and coffee that left me wanting more! Great atmosphere too. Wasn't too crowded when we arrived at 1100 but I believe it gets quite busy earlier, and it's not hard to see why. Crispy streaky bacon, eggs done to perfection, hollandaise sauce and those wonderful fried potatoes! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Definitely going back for more. Well worth the $$.

Popped in for a smoothie and coffee and it was, in a good way, like visiting a pub in England on a Saturday night. At 10.00hrs it was buzzing, packed and loud. Brilliant young staff who were a pleasure to do business with. The plates of food looked tasty well presented. Might have to go back for more than drinks.

I'm told that Joe's Garage is Queenstown's best kept secret, but based on how busy it was when we visited for breakfast I think the secret is well and truly out.
We got the last available table, and the place was hopping at the time, but we were still served in very quick time, by very friendly and helpful staff, who all seemed to be having a lot of fun.

Good extensive menu for breakfast, bring an appetite the meals are generous, the coffee is excellent and overall it is a great experience at Joe's.
