Classic Breakfasts With Something For Everyone
The menu at Joe’s includes your classic Full English equipped with sausage, bacon, beans and eggs on toast, or you can upgrade to the ‘bigger’ breakfast with additional mushrooms and fried potatoes, or for the more hungrier of us – you can have the ‘biggest’ option with additional black pudding, slow roasted tomatoes and extra toast!
They also serve vegetarian full breakfasts, alongside a vegan option and gluten-free options too, so they really have something for everyone. If the full cooked breakfast doesn’t take your fancy, you can try their scrambled eggs on toast with either bacon, smoked salmon or mushrooms, or how about their homemade waffles with real maple syrup with a choice of smoked bacon, fried egg or scrambled egg instead.
For a lighter brunch you can have crushed avocado on toast with fresh chilli and a poached egg, or slow roasted tomato, rocket and poached egg on toast too.
Famous Potato Hashes
At Joe’s they have 5 different hashes to choose from, depending on how hungry you are feeling or what flavours you feel like on the day. These all come with fried potatoes, cheddar cheese, chives and a fried egg. Some of the options include The Meaty Hangover Hash with bacon, sausage, onion and mushroom, or the Veggie Spanish Hash with veggie sausage, red pepper, onion, mushroom, paprika and chilli flakes. You can choose from regular (£6.95), or large (£7.95).
If you are really hungry, they have the Hashgeddon – (described as a very very big hash!) that includes sausage, bacon, mushroom, onion, black pudding, tomato, beans and an extra egg as well as the chives and cheese! Joe’s Cafe will donate 50p of every Hashgeddon sold to the local Exeter Street Hall.
