Joe's Grill is a diner style cafe with 4 locations in Vancouver.
I don't know how they get the roasted potatoes so perfect but i love it. I cook a lot at home so I'm picky when i go out
and Joe's Grill is always a pleasant experience and is worth the drive from New West (and I hate to drive downtown). I haven't tried anything else there to be honest and believe me
it is usually my intention but I can't pass up the corned beef hash/poached eggs/sausage.
The staff is casual, super fast and professional.
This place is so cheap and large portions, and tasty too! The servers are really friendly. The weird murals on the wall are kinda bizarre and ugly, but hey, it creates some sort of atmosphere I guess. For a cheap and good breakfast this place is always consistent.

We headed down the street to Joe's Grille as the wait for Sophies was a bit long. I had the "Denver Omelette" and my wife the breakfast burrito. My "Denver" consisted of scrambled egg with some pepper, onion, and a couple small chunks of ham... no cheese, no nicely stuffed and turned omelette. It was the most poorly made, driest, most tasteless omelette I have ever sampled. The partieall cooked highly salted fried potatos offered as a side hardly made up for it. Even though I only had one bite, my less than charming waitress felt that I was oblidged to pay for the most pathetic excuse for breakfast I have ever seen. My wifes burrito was edible, but far short of spectacular. If your on 4th and looking for breakfast, I reccomend waiting for Sophies. Joes has a great Diner atmosphere, but THE FOOD AND SERVICE ARE THE WORST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.
Joe's Grill is one of the best places in Vancouver to go when you can't be bothered with the line up at trendy Vancouver breaky hot spots. They have the usual spread, and they do breakfast items fairly well. Not a big fan of the hash browns, but the top notch diner coffee makes up for it.
