I have only done 2 reviews including this one. Both as warnings. Sticky tables. French toast nothing more than soggy bread. My wife ordered a "slight" modification to her plate. She was charged the menu item + an a la carte charge even though nothing was added?? Only positives: servers were friendly, sausage was tasty. Everything else was no good.... More

It is sad to see a locally owned "mom and pop" type restaurant decline, but this one is. I used to love this restaurant. The pancakes that accompanied most egg meals were outstanding. They now are only average. The omelets were fluffy and very tasty. Now, they are inconsistent and often dry. I am not sure what has happened to... More

Got a Groupon on an extra special deal that cost me $5 for $20 so we decided to give this place a shot. When we got there, we were not really greeted, but were told by the ONLY somewhat harried waitress that it would be at least 20 minutes. We decided to wait anyway, no bid deal. We then watched...

We purchased a Groupon even though the restaurant was 50 miles from where we live in Goodyear. By the looks of the food other tables were getting it appeared we might be in for a treat; however, I guess we ordered the wrong thing, or perhaps because we used a Groupon we got less than what we thought we paid...

This is a small, gourmet restaurant with a flair for baking. The cook made the English muffins from scratch for a new experiment in "Breakfast Pizza" (Canadian Bacon, diced tomato, with melted Mozzarella cheese). The baked pancake with fresh blueberries was especially tasty. Don't go here if you are in a hurry, but it is a great place to eat,... More

JP Pancake is a small neighborhood breakfast joint in the McCormick Ranch area of Scottsdale. I think they have another location, but I've only been to this one. I've eaten there probably 10-12 times in the past 18 months and while a tad pricey, the food is good and I like the feeling of patronizing a locally managed restaurant (as... More

There's nothing on the menu you can't make at home. If you like overpriced buttermilk pancakes you'll love this place. Walked in and was told it would be just a minute for a table. 20 minutes later and 4 tables walk right in and get seated and they then came outside and said there was a list. Don't waste your...

Unless this restaurant was recommended to me I: (1) Would not have known it existed; and (2) would have never eaten there. JP is located in a strip shopping center and does not at all look like a restaurant from the street. The restaurant was recommended to me by a family member, so I gave it a try. Once inside... More
