This coffee house diner has been a long standing favorite in Alameda. Run by Greeks it oozes with warmth and a family atmosphere. The parking is not the greatest but once you make your inside I promise you will be glad you came. I have been coming to this place for nearly 50 years...Please try it out.

This is a good place to take the kids for dinner if you're looking for fast not fancy. Expect a traditional family menu.

I have been a regular at Jim's as he makes the best breakfasts (all day) with fresh cut hash browns, the tastiest sausage or thick (really thick!) sliced bacon. There is a bottomless coffee cup policy - the coffee is rich & yummy, no matter what you add: cream & sugar like I do. I don't have to ask for... More

Take a trip back in time when you enter the 50's style diner. Very nice waitress and hostess catered to our larger group. Food was quick and piping hot. The biscuits and gravy ROCKS. Huge portions of biscuits covered with eggs and gravy, and the rest of the oversized plate filled with hash browns. This is one breakfast stop not... More

Jim's is not the place for a diet!! The portions are LARGE and hearty, just like an old fashioned diner. We love the omelets, pancakes and scrambles. My 95 year old Dad prefers scrambled eggs with hash browns and ham !! The lunches are great as well, we love the burgers and the California Club. I don't know anyone who... More
