Located in the Granada Hills section of the San Fernando Valley is Joe’s Cafe. Despite the ordinary name, it is not an ordinary restaurant. Breakfast and Lunch are two meals of the day specialized at Joe’s Cafe. If you know anything anything about this area then you know that Food Trucks meet on this business strip every Friday night. Joe’s Cafe could be easily missed if it were not for the crowds waiting and the rare outdoor dining that you see happening during the weekdays especially.
The restaurant has heightened popularity with a Chopped Champion chef. And let me tell you, the food does not disappoint. I went with two men who ordered sandwiches that are accompanied with pretty green salads. One dining partner kept talking about his menu item called The Beef , describing it as the best burger he every had. Now, he had been to the establishment for breakfast and wasn’t originally that impressed but this time, he was. His burger was sandwiched between a pretzel bun and the burger was topped with cheddar cheese, drunken onions and roasted jalepeño aioli.
I opted for the popular Belgian waffle which can be filled with chocolate
chips and bacon. I opted out of the chocolate. I can say this was one of the better waffles that I have eaten. It was light in texture and flavors included sweetness plus the right amount of savory imparted from the bacon.
Joe’s Cafe is not open for dinner.
