You would never know how big the place is from the outside. Parking can be kinda tight at times but they do have a lot around the back. Food was okay but nothing to write home about. It a nice community diner.

Jim's is a great place to go for "comfort food". Great selection of breakfast and lunch items with good size portions. The only thing that is "just ok" is their coffee. Although I don't find many "diners" with good coffee. You can get a "specialty" coffee there which are better but just don't expect great coffee.

We were vacationing in San Francisco ... but stayed in Alameda for 4 days as there were no available hotel rooms in San Fran due to a huge convention. I checked Trip Advisor for a good breakfast place and chose to go to Jim's Coffee Shop because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. The selections were plentiful, the portions... More

Great breakfast. Almost alwY consistent. Generous portions. Plenty of choices. Basic breakfast options. But a big menu. Where we go for breakfast. Not fancy. Been there forever. For good reason.

An institution for a great diner breakfast. Stuffed French toast is divine. Good size portions so bring your appetite!

We never eat chain restaurants when traveling. We saw this café when we were on our way back to the hotel and thought we would give it a try. The café was large and everyone was friendly. A little slow on the service, but they might have been changing shifts. Our party tried the hamburgers and spaghetti. The burgers were... More

This place is very popular, but I don't know why. Its an old style diner, which serves some big plates, but the food was disappointing. I would go somewhere else, unless you are just into big portions.

There were a lot of flies and the bacon was too fatty and they need better sausage and my mocha was way to strong but overall just another diner

I wish I could split the ratings - 5 stars for brunch, 3 for lunch and dinner. We arrive and are greeted warmly by the maitre d', who knows us, for we've come here for twenty years. I look over the menu carefully and choose what I always choose: Special #6, french toast and country sausages. My wife always finds... More
