Great way to start the day with a filling breakfast

Really great breakfast spot. We typically opted to eat breakfast at our rental house and then head out for a day at the beaches. We decided on Jake's for a full, hearty breakfast and then a light lunch on the beach. So glad we did. This was our first trip to the island with our 3 kids. We... read more

Great place for breakfast waiting for a ferry. The waitstaff was great, and the food was awesome. Slightly pricey, but worth it. Breakfast burritos ROCK!

Took the ferry from St. Thomas to St. John's and when we arrived asked a female cop where to eat breakfast (they always know the best places). She recommended Jake's and we weren't disappointed. Had homemade corn-beef hash and eggs. Really GOOD!!! Service was also top notch. I would highly recommend for breakfast or lunch.

Went here for breakfast. Small place upstairs in The Lumberyard. Great bloody Mary's & the best home made corned beef hash I have ever had! You have to try Jakes.

We ate breakfast at Jake's on a rainy Sunday and it was delicious. I had the homemade hash and eggs (recommend highly) and my wife had an omelette with (cajun) potatoes. Low key, simple place with great staff and equally wonderful food. And I did try the bloody Mary with the house jalapeño infused vodka - enjoyed the burn. Don't... More

They have the best homemade corned beef hash. We ate breakfast there two times the week were in Cruz Bay. Delicious food and great staff. We are still craving it here in Florida.

This won't be long winded. Jake's is a wonderful breakfast spot. Amazing service- the waitresses are so nice and friendly. The food is better than any other restaurant we visited on St. John. Pancakes are awesome. Skillet potatoes (homefries on their menu) are soooooo addictive. The breakfast burrito will fill you up for hours- so delicious. Filled with eggs, cheese,... More

Huge breakfast menu for such a quaint place. Omelet menu is diverse and delicious. Pancakes are light, fluffy and so fresh not heavy. Home made jams (mango, papaya and more) were divine. Extremely friendly staff and quick wonderful service. Great view of Cruz Bay if you sit at the window. EAT HERE!

Great diner. A real find. All of the food, but especially the hash is excellent. The homemade jams are delicious. I want to buy it when they are ready to sell...
