Great local breakfast cafe

Jack's has the best breakfast in Bishop! It is an interesting, fun little "hole in the wall" with really good food. We try to have breakfast there at least once on our yearly trip to the area.

First of all Debbie is a delight. Great service and a wonderful sense of humor. GET THE CHILI! You won't regret it. I went for "Jack's Burger" and was happy I did. If ever this way again, you can bet I will be back.

When visiting Bishop this is the place we go for meals more than any other. It is heavily a local restaurant, but tourists are spotted here too. The food for any meal is very well prepared, most of it from scratch, especially the excellent selection of pies and baked goods, and the service and atmosphere is very good. Bishop has... More

Have been eating at this Resteraunt for many years, the food is always good. They have decent prices and the service is excellent! Really enjoy their breakfast, Dinners are very nice with great specials every night. Perfect place to wind down after enjoying the many exciting things to do in the Bishop area......

Over the years, we've stopped into Jacks for hearty meals and yummy baked goods. The other famous bakery in town had nothing better than Jacks for the same items. Well, sadly I can no longer say the same about either Jacks food or baked goods. Their food is not good. And the cinnamon roll my husband had was tough and... More

Jack's has been a mainstay on Main Street (CA HWY 395) for as many years as I have been around. We used to have breakfast here on our annual pilgrimage to the Eastern Sierras when I was in Boy Scouts. It was good then and it's still just as good now. They have an amazing staff....some of whom have worked... More

We were staying in Bishop after a long day on the road and called into Jack's for dinner. First impressions were that it was dirty, but we were tired so stuck with it and were seated. The waitress was friendly enough. Whilst sat waiting to order I noticed how grubby the floors were, with rotting food in the corners. We... More
