    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.

    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!

    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.

    stumptown coffee, harry bertoia chairs at the bar, outdoor seating and tables aplenty, tacos for breakfast only and ham cheese melt + fries are great for lunch

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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 ;)

    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

    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 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

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