Neat decor with the fun-ho toys as napkin holders. Food was delicious. Was nice to sit in the outdoor area with the fire.

A fairly average quick grill and pizza chain that doesn't pretend to be what it's not. Opens early for breakfast which is useful, and the service was quick and chirpy. Food was good without being awesome and the menu was same-same. Except for the breakfast 'pikelets', rather than 'pancakes' - which is a nice NZ touch. i returned for dinner... More

Myself and 2 friends visited joes garage at a very busy time (lunch time- during americarna), we had a minor complaint about the food and the duty manager Candice Matthews, dealt with it so well, after a small explanation of what had happened we understood what had gone wrong, but Candice went above and beyond making sure we were happy...

Mouth watering food, great coffee, excellent service, who could ask for more. This restaurant style cafe was super busy and has vastly improved since my last visit a few years ago. Even though they were flat out, our coffees came out fast and hot and served with a beaming smile. We had twice cooked pork belly, crackling, Mash, sliced apples,... More

Enjoy going here particularly for a weekend lunch or brunch. The food is cooked within sight of the tables. The service is quick, the staff cheerful. Lots of different seating available. Excellent clean toilets. The music just a little loud for conversations if in a group.

Food was really good, staff was pleasant, nothing terribly unusual but good enough I would go back again. The garlic pizza bread was a nice way to start, kinda like getting the bread basket before the meal.
