Island Joe’s is a family friendly coffee shop and gallery on North Padre Island. It is the perfect place to stop by before or after the beach or spend a day working remotely and sipping on their delicious drinks. Island Joe’s offers non-dairy alternatives, house-made syrups, and a variety of delicious food options as well. Their wifi is stable and fast, providing the perfect place to work remotely from (and then reward yourself with a trip to the beach after work). There is plenty of seating inside and outside as well as outlets, a pet-friendly patio, family friendly events, and a convenient drive through.

Favorite Drinks

Island Girl 

A fan favorite latte, served hot, cold, or frozen, with caramel, white chocolate, and your choice of milk. I’ve had this drink cold and frozen to beat the Texas heat and it’s absolutely delicious! I ask them to make it less sweet, and it’s perfect.

Matcha Latte with Lavender and Oat Milk

Matcha is a recent obsession of mine since returning from Hawaii and I thought I’d try out Island Joe’s version. The barista informed me that their matcha is a bit bitter and suggested I add flavor if I prefer your matcha latte a little sweater. I love adding lavender, vanilla or honey to my matcha lattes and having it served on ice with oat milk.

Favorite Food

Cucumber and Dill Toast

This toast is absolutely delicious! As a plant-based individual, its one of my family’s favorite toasts to indulge in for lunch. Layered with house made dill spread, cucumber, and healthy greens, the cucumber and dill toast will leave you feeling satisfied and ready to take on the day.

Hummus and Toasted Naan

Who doesn’t love hummus and naan? As another plant-based favorite, Island Joe’s uses roasted red pepper hummus and toasted naan as a delicious snack. 

Alternatives

Since myself and my family are primarily plant-based, we have not tried any of the menu items with chicken or other meats. However, I’m sure the Chicken Caprese Sandwich and the Smoked Chicken Salad are absolutely delicious given how scrumptious their plant-based food is. You can view Island Joe’s full menu here.

Giving Back

One of my absolute favorite things about Island Joe’s is their mission to give back. They give back both locally and to a feeding program they helped set up in the Dominican Republic.

Beach Cleanup & An Iced Joe

When you bring a bag of trash to Island Joe’s from the beach, you can get a free Iced Joe. My sister and I went to the beach on the Island and filled up two HEB grocery bags with trash we found on the beach. We could’ve filled so much more, but took what we had to Island Joe’s and were given a free iced coffee. It was so rewarding to help the environment at a local level.

Feeding Program in Dominican Republic

According to Island Joe’s website, a percentage of Island Joes sales goes to a feeding program we have helped to set up in the Dominican Republic. To learn more, visit them in the cafe or check out their website.
