Joe's Coffee Shop

American named. Chinese owned. Barely decorated. Well, unless you count the stack of phonebooks behind the counter supporting an old unplugged TV. This must be Joe's Coffee Shop. Residing in the Richmond District for 20 years, Joe's serves up a no frills but quality breakfast. The service is all business, so don't expect a lot of pleasantries, but the food is ready fast and coffee is refilled often. It's a busy place, but you won't have to wait too long for a seat. The old Chinese patriarch slaving away over the burners is a sight to behold. 6134 Geary Boulevard (between 25th Ave & 26th Ave.)
