Reviews for Jo's Coffee Downtown


The preppier, prettier sister of Jo's on South Congress, Jo's Coffee Downtown offers tons of breakfast options. I like the Broken Egg Yolk sandwich, with cheddar and bacon. Mmm.


Excellent people-watching, and delicious iced coffee sums up this local favorite. Don't miss their buy one, get one burger nights.

An Austin Landmark – Eclectic and intimate coffeehouse with excellent coffee, polite staff, a hip and fun vibe, and great location downtown.

It aint all that... – So I have seen this restaurant in passing several times and have always seen a line on the sidewalk. After many attempts to find a close parking spot on several different occasions I finally managed to park and partake of their menu. I had already seen their website and was looking forward to trying it out. So when I tried to order I was taken aback to find out that they were no longer serving hot sandwiches and all their other menu items came pre-made. To say I was disappointed was an understatement, and to top it off the sandwich was terrible, it was soggy and the meat was processed and cheap. I paid twice or three times as much for a abhorrent sandwich.

Love the coffee – I love Jos. The coffee is alwasy sublime, the food can be kind of weird and bland at times. I think it depends on who makes it. Always a funplace to hang out though, and lots of interesting people to llok at and chat with!

This retro-meets-hipster bistro serves as the social hub of the Second Street District. – In Short
This laid-back sidewalk cafe's apple green and ruby red exterior grabs the attention of urban shoppers perusing the busy neighborhood. Once inside, casually mismatched tables and chairs, oversized basket-like lighting and modern artwork provide a hip, relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast and lunch menus offer fresh and hearty options, such as egg white omelets and burgers on sweet buns. On-the-go customers visit the convenient walk-up window (complete with doggy biscuits for Fido) for speedy service.
