One of the best places to eat breakfast in Avondale! It gets very busy so expect a bit of a wait. Farm cooking !

After our adrenalin-rush riding in race cars at PIR, we were looking for a late breakfast nearby. We prefer to frequent locally-owned spots only, so found this one on Trip Advisor. We arrived late morning on a Saturday so understandably there was a line to get in. But chatting with the owner "Don" was great and we didn't wait long... More

We were a party of six, dropped by for a late lunch. The place is a favorite with many locals. It has a reputation for fast service, good food, large servings and very reasonable prices. I have eaten here many times before and never had cause to complain. I ordered a western omelet, and it was delicious. However, two of... More

Don't let the humble exterior fool you! This is a great place for a family breakfast. The food is tasty with great variety and large portions. the pancakes were light and fluffy. The service was friendly and efficient. Be prepared to wait because of the popularity of the restaurant. We would definitely go again when we are in the area.

What a great find - thanks to the concierge in my hotel (George). Proper home cooked food and friendly service. Massive portions as usual so only have the short stack if you're having the pancakes. Enjoy!

We had breakfast here this morning and I must say, TJ's beats all the other locals hands down, food and service was outstanding, very clean and homey inside, booths and tables were impeccable. Pricing is also outstanding and very reasonable. I personally highly recommend you visit TJ's... More

Our "go-to" place for breakfast. We're always satisfied with the food and service. It can get a little noisy at times--small place and always plenty of happy customers.
