Good breakfast

I would go back to Jack's. It's a good place for breakfast after getting on the island. Very friendly, home-cooked style breakfast.

The food at Jack's was good and the prices were reasonable. There is a good variety to pick from and everything our group had was good. Our waitress, Mary Ellen, was great. She was fun and gave us suggestions on what to do on the island.

I had the strawberry & crepes. It was literally what it said: a crepe with strawberries inside with whip cream on top. The strawberries were not the sweetest. The whole dish was a bit dry. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was had a good family-friendly atmosphere.

This is a great restaurant for a yummy breakfast. Big portions and reasonably priced. Sometimes there can be a wait, but worth it. We always have breakfast here when we visit the island.

We went here for lunch and had excellent service from our waiter. The place was packed and our wait was not to bad. Not so, when we returned the next morning for breakfast. We were taken to a table, but had to move so they could accommodate a large party of 16. Our server had just taken our drink order... More

The menu is extensive. The food is very good. When I asked the hotel desk clerk where he ate, this is the place. You can't go wrong.

I absolutely love the little decor, the bacon was REAL bacon!! lol. Good hearty slices and they had what look like home made jams/jellies. The food was big servings that you left feeling full and no room for more!! We went back 3 more time while in Catalina!

I ate with a larger party - 8 of us total and the staff seated us after only a short wait. Food was great and the staff was very efficient and courteous. Bonus points: They allowed us all to stash our luggage at the front while we were eating which made things super convenient.
