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!!

Had a fantastic meal here. The pork belly was great, atmosphere is great, staff friendly. But bad selection of beer considering what fantastic craft beer is available now, pizza was not that great due to gas fired oven.

Great food and excellent value for money. The pork belly was beautifully moist and the flavours combined well. The burgers were so big and yummy that there was little room for dessert although the ice cream was to die for!
