What kind of cafe doesn't do poached eggs????!!!!!!! Waited ages for someone to take my order and when I ordered eggs on toast they asked- fried or scrambled? I said poached. They don't do poached!!!!!! Disappointed! So I ordered muesli. Slow service too.

Yup, this is one of my preferred places to go for breakfast. We showed up without a reservation, and despite being crowded, they seated us after a brief chat about needing the table cleared for a reservation by a certain time. It was more than enough time for us. The food has always been pretty good here, though I was disappointed when told their Jose Burrito was sold out. And in looking at the rest of the menu, it really just seemed like a combination of eggs cooked one way or another, with other stuff on the side. But other than that, it's all pretty good and the waitresses are usually worth a look at even if the menu isn't quite as tasty.

Coffee and muffins are yummie, big breakfasts, pizza, or bistro meal.
Often busy (service can be slow), you need to book!
Has a TV, usually tuned to sport, usually sound off.

Joe's Garage staff coped very well with a large brunch group on Mother's Day, creating a bigger table as more people arrived. The service was friendly and the coffee and food very good. The whole group appreciated their cheerful positivity and helpful attitude. The fruit crumble was a highlight.

Very enjoyable lunch. The place was really busy (thank goodness we had a booking !) but the staff were super efficient. We dined as a group of 6 and our meals (and drinks) were all delivered quickly.
Lots of choice - breakfast through to dinner on the menu
Excellent atmosphere - fun and friendly
