I got the turbo ice coffee. It was delicious. The pastries were great! The snickerdoodle cookie was so large and soft. Very good. The raspberry gluten free pop tart was so good.

You hear about the breakfast tacos in Austin and you'd think this place would be the place to get them - right in the heart of South Congress! But its not - skip the tacos, get them elsewhere, but DO stop here for cardamom coffee! That is a real treat!

Here's the scoop: Austin has different laws than other Texas cities. If you park at Jo's you have to back in the parking spot. When I pulled up one employee gave me Major stink eye. I didn't understand why she was staring and talking to other employees when we walked up she said " you know it's illegal to park... More

The staff was friendly, the coffee was hot, and the breakfast tacos were delicious. This place gets noticed for the famous "I love you so much" mural on the side of the building, so if you find yourself there, stop by for a cup of joe, and a taco or two.

The iced Turbo is exactly what I needed on a hot day of exploring South Congress. Grab a pastry and a coffee... Oh, and take a photo with the "I love you so much" mural on the side.

There are always lines at Jo's...watch the SoCo world go by, and eat in the open air patio (some covered). The baked goods are wonderful and the coffee creations are stout. The breakfast tacos are great - they start serving them at 8 AM and when they're gone, they're gone. If you want a coffee buzz, I would recommend the... More

Everybody else was going for the tacos, but I really loved their lattes and pastries for breakfast. Their spicy tacos were good later in the day. On the weekends it was fun to hear some of the bands setting up for a few hours of music. Yes, all the dogs seemed to really listen to this. LOL.

It seems this place is an Austin institution with queues for coffee and people taking photos under the graffiti "I love you so much" sign. I couldn't quite work out what all the fuss was about. The coffee was pretty average. It is conveniently located though.
