Pretty good food.

Pretty good food. Very friendly service. Depending on when you go, there may be a significant wait. But close to the pier.

Hottest and best Kona coffee, exceptional wait staff (ask for Ana), great omelets, Portuguese sausage, salmon anything, french toast, ect. Packed but they move people in and out quickly without you feeling rushed! Do it!

My husband had traditional breakfast with eggs, sausage and pancakes. I had the breakfast burrito which was so big, I could only eat half of it. Overall, the breakfast was good. Nothing to shout about but we liked the food.

THE place in town for a nostalgic breakfast brunch. Photos of past celebrity visits make Original Jack's the best option for a dependable delicious breakfast or lunch.

Loved their breakfast. When we got to the restaurant their was a crowd of people standing outside, the waitress said about 15 minute wait and she was right.

This a great place for breakfast being menu big portions. Get there early to avoid a wait especially if you have a large group. Local secret there are a half a dozen seats at the counter with no wait.

This place has great food. We went at 9 and had to wait about 20 minutes. Even though it is very busy they get also get people in and out very quickly. It's not that big inside so be prepared for noise and sitting close to others.

For a breakfast, or simply a need to fill that desire for something sweet, fluffy, and tasty. Yeah!! Country Kitchen. During an early morning walk, the scent of the bakery and breakfast food wafting through air, beckons you to "come on in a sit a while." "after all your on vacation, and we've got a great breakfast waiting for you."
