We loved the selection of breakfast items. The fresh fruit crepes were enjoyed by several of us as well as the Macadamia French Toast with Coconut Syrup. Meat products are from sustainable farmers such as Niman Ranch and eggs are cage free.

Excellent breakfast. Eat after 9am and you will be full until dinner time. Not the biggest portions in the world but great French toast.

Came here with friends and had a great Montana Ranch burger double with cheese with jalepenos and bacon with side of fries...really good..everyone else liked their food as well. They have a really good selection of burgers and sandwiches for lunch and a really extensive breakfast menu that looks super good. Busy place great people watching.

Jack's was great! We ate here twice during our stay -- once for breakfast, once for lunch. We had excellent service from Daniel, a great selection to please everyone, and very good food. The secret is out because this was the most popular place on Sunday morning. We really enjoyed it and recommend you go!

We walked in thinking this place would be the best for hearty pancakes and yummy coffee but we were wrong! Food is average nothing special.The place is suffering an identity crisis. Our paper place mats were Western cowboys, the wall decor is old Hollywood celebrity photos, the shelf above the condiments were half body New Orleans musicians and then on... More

The food was great. We sat at the bar and saw how clean everything is in the kitchen. The workers worked non stop to make sure everyone got served and was happy.

I loved the hustle and bustle of Jack's Country Kitchen! Even more, I loved the service and food. These folks know how to treat you right while running a busy restaurant. The place was packed, but our coffee cups never got low. Our server was the sweetest gal on the Island. The "Avalon Joe's" dish was very good. Scrambled eggs... More

Since Sally's was forced out of business, we tried this place for the first time. Food good and selection is plentiful. Here on 4th of July, and the wait was long, but hostess and staff are nice.

I had the eggs benedict and it was delicious. My friend had the halibit tacos and she enjoyed them too! The staff was very friendly too.

A well-known place for breakfast. Some of the items are overpriced but there is a wide selection for an a.m. chow-down. The place is busy.
