Great lunches but save room for desert! You can't make a wrong choice whether it be pie, cake or just a lemon square it will be awesome. Homemade goodness you can't find many places. The service and people just add to the home town friendliness. If ever in Merced or Atwater you need to stop by. Even if just for... More

Want a great breakfast or lunch? Try Jantz Cafe on G street in Merced. Their pies are the talk of the area and can't be duplicated anywhere in town. The service is excellent. Get there early as seating is crowed during regular mealtimes.

Jantz is a restaurant that has been in Atwater for several years. They are the best for 'homemade' food. It's owned and run by Menonites and so you get the quality of food without the 'fast' cooking or shortcuts that many restaurants use. Wednesday's they give you a free piece of pie with your lunch. I went with friends here... More

Very clean and inviting. Excellent service and their breakfast can't be beat. They make their own pastries. Try their cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting.

Breakfast and lunch are great. Everything is made from scratch. The seasonal pies are wonderful.right now they have fresh strawberry pies and cakes. Soon it will be fresh peach pie. Everyone who works there is friendly.as they would say, "Enjoy."

We needed boxed lunches for our trip into Yosemite and tried Jantz. The sandwiches were the best, especially the chicken salad. We went back the next day for biscuits and gravy and pastries. Wish I lived closer to one. I dream of the chicken salad. Wonderful place! Not big enough for a restaurant but there are a couple tables outside.

Everything is quality and made from scratch. The amount of food to price is well worth it. You will be full. Bacon and eggs are great and thick slices of fresh home made bread...

Everything is made fresh, their bakery is amazing and the staff is absolutely wonderful! Hands down if you are looking for a great breakfast or lunch and you want something fresh and delicious then go there! My favorites include their chicken salad and peach pie! They give free pie with each meal on Wednesday!
