    Jo's is my fav coffee cafe in Austin. The original Jo's on Congress is great for a short break and pastry. The location on 2nd street is a proper sit down lunch and breakfast. Great prices=super staff Read more

    order one "ready to go" breakfast taco, and a second breakfast taco custom "made to order" from the kitchen. they'll deliver the second one nice and warm to your table as you're finishing the first.

    Perfect for a leisurely day on south congress. The ice teas are strong and you get 2-3 free refills. A lot of seating options and tons to watch for...especially those birds!

    better than average espresso and coffee, big rec (much better than S*s). love the atmosphere at both locations, each different. food has varied from average to quite good, would like more consistency

    Good place to chill, get food and get some work done. Eggplant sandwich is delicious but super greasy. has pretty good coffee. Breakfast served until 10:30am. Free wifi (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Fantastic booths for semi-private chatting over your meal. Pulled pork sandwich is delicious. Fantastic coffee - get your frequent buyer card stamped! Also validate city hall parking.

    Get an iced turbo. You literally have to, I insist on it. If you can make it here early enough, they have some of the best breakfast tacos I've had but THEY WILL RUN OUT.

    This is the only decent coffee I could find in Austin - A latte that tastes like real coffee! Service was slightly slow, but the quality def made up for it ;)

    Austin friendly with excellent coffee. Can be a little tourist-laden at times but you can't beat their breakfasts

    The staff needs an attitude adjustment. Flat out rude, dismissive and condescending behavior by the staff. My parents who came here a while ago were also disappointed by the staff's bad attitude.

    If the burger of the day is bacon/blue cheese/caramelized onions, you definitely want to order it. Bring your lactose pills so you can have a turbo ;)

    Jo's actually has a large food menu including simple sandwiches and breakfast tacos. Sometimes all you want is a tuna melt or a grilled cheese.

    The room temperature soup that they clearly forgot about is great, also check out the salads and burgers they'll forget to bring you! 5 stars

    A hopping place in the morning but you can always grab the simple pre-made breakfast tacos and get out quickly with a delicious bite

    They have almond milk and vegan pastries too...vegan chocolate muffin is to die for...and I say that as a non-vegan

    Like OMG. This place it like totally the best because it totally plays the best music in Austin. It's totally like listening to Jennifer's iPod.

    I usually go for the burger (which is excellent btw), but their BLT & broken yolk sandwich are solid choices too!

    They know how to do caffeine. And the Palmers are perfect on a hot summer day in Austin -- skip the tacos.

    It was crazy crowded during SXSW, but it has good food and beer, and the service was pretty quick.

    good coffee, (probably the best soy lattes I've ever had) good people, and good atmosphere...@joscoffee

    Love their coffee but this is a far reach from good food. Downtown is in dire need of some good eats beside lamberts hh.. Jos is always a last resort

    Delicious with great portion sizes. Avoid the blueberry pancakes because the extra 50¢ is not worth it.

    No one makes bigger or better breakfast tacos. You can also get them with a corn tortilla!

    Ask for 1/2 the ice in your iced turbo. They pit entirely too much ice in there normally!

    The eggplant sandwich will fill you up nicely. Also, GoLocal is accepted here for 10% off.

    Has a diner feel to it (paper cups for coffee). Quality food and coffee though.

    Good coffee, but also a reliable spot for breakfast (or lunch) in the downtown area.

    Take a break from shopping the posh stores on busy 2nd Street and stop by for a tasty sandwich or the infamously addictive iced coffee. Read more

    Probably one of the best places to get hamburgers downtown. The herb aioli is great on everything.

    Wifi does not connect here. If you're looking to work, try another spot. The menu looks pretty good though.

    Breakfast is supposed to be until 2pm on the weekends. They told us it was over already when we got here at 1:30. What a disappointment!

    Food was good but I think they try to hard to be hip. I like their patio seating.

    Everything is good, but start with the smoked turkey or pulled pork sandwiches.

    Get the iced turbo or Belgian. Discount on day old banana bread is worth it.

    There is no reason for you to get anything other than potato egg and cheese. You'd just be wasting everybody's time.

    Try the Belgian Bomber for a slightly less sweet version of the iced turbo.

    Not great. Dry cap I ordered was more like a cup of Folgers with a thin layer of foam.

    Turkey Reuben. Very delicious, I highly recommend.
