Breakfasts are the best!!! Desserts are all delicious. Lunch is good but if your choice is breakfast or lunch....go with the breakfast! If you go at lunch time....be prepared for a pretty good wait.

Jantz Café is a great place to come and get breakfast or lunch. Food is great and the staff is fabulous. Definitely the best place to have breakfast in Merced county.
