A very popular morning stop for us and many of the locals. Bright and friendly staff who seem to know everyone there. A hearty breakfast is assured.

I live in Arizona, but visit this community every few years. I always eat at least one meal here. Generally breakfast, sometimes dinner. The food and service is always great. Good food. Good people. I recommend this little place.

Great service, great food, reasonable prices. All in all a great "home-town" feeling when you go to the J&L café.

I felt awkward asking the waitress to please clean our table top even though it had obviously just been passed over with a greasy cloth.

Don't expect a gourmet experience here, but go for the friendly people, the rich atmosphere and the cheap eats. Every little town should have a place like this. I don't have any specific food recommendations, but I've never been disappointed in the half dozen times I've been here. Only drawback: Parking in front can be treacherous.
