Wonderful little place for breakfast and lunch. We also use this restaurant for catering at our office. They deliver which is a huge savings of time. Love the Dave, omelets, creme brûlée french toast for a treat. Lovely family and we enjoy doing business with them.

My family was transferred to CT and was blessed to find a great place in Old Saybrook. This gem is just down the street. You would pass right by if you didn't know to stop. They are friendly and the food is outstanding. The potatoes were a surprise at breakfast and a must have when we go. Corned beef hash... More

Spent the night at Mohegan Sun Casino and decided to have breakfast on the road. We were so happy to find Jamss! It was a super busy Sunday morning and we sat up at the bar. This allowed us to watch this family run restaurant in action - they have an open kitchen and we watched them prepare many mega-meals... More

JAMSS is one of those places I daydream about and eagerly anticipate the next time that I will eat there. I often find myself in the area but will also go out of my way to have breakfast and/or lunch there and frequently choose it over the many other local options. It's casual, comfortable, friendly atmosphere and delicious, generous portions... More

I ordered food to go from JAMSS today based on the good reviews and ended up not even eating it all and concerned for my health. As I was about to put one of the last bites of their raved about fruit bowl into my mouth, I noticed a very visible green, fuzzy mold growth on the strawberry slice resting... More

I run an employee committee that is responsible for special functions one of which is a Christmas breakfast. We employed jamss for our 2012 breakfast and it was fantastic. Eggs were perfect, homemade sausage patties bacon bagels and muffins, plenty of good food for 100 people. The next year a no brainer after our first experience. We were very disappointed.... More

How can an eating establishment have no restroom? This is a real problem. You cannot even wash your hands before eating. Friendly staff though.

The reason this place is usually crowded is the exceptional quality of the breakfasts. Best for miles around!

Little restaurant in a strip mall that is always packed. Huge pancakes and lots of great breakfast selections. The muffins are to die for. The only problem is getting a seat.
