Joe's Diner / Award Winning Breakfast
My name is Joey D. and I’m the proud owner of the award winning Joe’s Diner located in North Naples, Florida. Are niche is our awesome down to earth breakfasts and awesome lunches! We claim to have the BEST Breakfast in SW Florida! Joe’s menu items have a long history, mostly created by his father “Big Joe” who had owned many popular restaurants for over 35 yrs. in Naples, including the White House, Mr. Moms, TJ’s & Cheeburger Cheeburger...
Now, his son, owner Joey D, a New England Culinary Institute Graduate (1988) & NECI Distinguished Alumni of the Year (2011) is honored to serve patrons at his “People’s Choice Award” winning, Joe’s Diner! He strives daily to bring his guests the freshest products in hearty portions at realistic prices. It’s our focus to bring you memorable comfort foods in traditional styles with creative twists to satisfy everyone’s dietary desires! So, if you don’t see what you would like, just ask! Welcome to our table… Enjoy your meal!
The incredible part of this story, is that Joey D is a paraplegic and has been in a wheelchair for the past 22 years. He has not let a tragic traumatic injury get in his way to succeed in the one thing he loves to do! With over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry, it’s Joey’s belief that it really doesn’t matter the type of restaurant you work or own, it always comes down to the basics of being the best in service, quality foods at affordable prices.

We are staying at the Ritz Cartlon Naples.....and stumbled across Joes Diner when we realized our wallet would not feed the Ritz prices....and wanted to taste some proper Florida breakfast!
What can we say but great food, great service and great value. We've had breakfast there most days of our Florida vacation!
Welcome to our table!
