Restaurant veggie sandwiches can be dull, tasteless and boring, but Jantz certainly knows what they're doing. Made with homemade, artisan breads and fresh vegetables, they can't be beat. I also had their macaroni salad and it was very good. Don't forget to save room for dessert. I'm not big on them, but their coconut cream pie is pretty special.

Jantz's is known for their pastries and breads which make this restaurant the place to go for breakfast for lunch. Ask for their secrete special syrup if you are having waffles, pancakes, or French toast. They won't tell you the ingredients but you might be able to figure them out if you have selective taste buds.

Hubby and I went to Jantz for lunch again today. We went in thinking it was past 'rush hour'. No.. But all was good. We were seated quickly, but had to wait a few minutes for service. No problem. We were greeted with the sweetest face and the biggest apology ever for our 'long' wait. Even though they are extremely... More

To start off with I liked the fact it's small. You don't feel crowed, but you do feel cozy. If you go for lunch, be sure and get there before 12. Otherwise your waiting in line. I usually order a half sandwich with soup. It's just enough to smooth a savage soul. I've tried some of the pies but haven't... More

The Merced restaurant scene is dominated by fast food & chains but this place is special. On a recent visit we ate breakfast twice, lunch once, and took home a pie. We kept going back because everything was good and the staff was so friendly. My first order was for a standard breakfast of fried eggs, ham, & potatoes. Not... More

Amazing deli and bakery! The sandwiches, soups, and salads are wonderful. The bread and pies are made from scratch. Who would've known Merced?

I like Jantz for the small, family atmosphere. You can't beat their food whether it is breakfast or lunch (or dinner) ( The one in Atwater is open for dinner.)

Came here for lunch on a Saturday (they are closed on Sundays) and really enjoyed their tri-tip sandwich and side salad. I also orded a slice of their berry pie -- delicious. Great small restaurant with friendly service.
