Real, homefries

My only pet peeve was that they charge on coffee refills. I was a little pissed that 2 coffees cost me $5!!! But really if you want the best homefries on the shoreline, come here!! they are beautifully seasoned--not frozen and chunky like Cristy's. Seriously THE BEST. The omellette's are great, the... read more

So much to say about this place. They have just moved into the new place I believe like around Memorial Day. This review is based on to recent back to back weekend visits, both times we had breakfast. I also realize some of this is growing pains, but they must right the ship. Service.....Bad....period that's it. A bunch of young... More

I've been working my way through the eggs Benedict menu and have rarely ordered anything else, however, on the occassion that I have, I haven't been disapointed. Everything is fresh and fantastic and although there are a lot of great breakfast places within a short distance, you should not miss this if you're in the neighborhood!

We ate here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. I had the eggs over a gravy which is over a biscuit and that was delicious. My wife had some eggs and a pancake. The pancakes are thicker than she is accustomed to and I thought the pancake was very good and "old fashioned" style, while my wife didn't care for... More

The food here is spectacular! However, the long wait and cold service make me not want to come back here. Our waitress, who we have had before, was not very friendly and never refilled our coffee during our 45 minute stay. We eventually had to request our food to go because of the long wait and because we had somewhere... More

It's been awhile since our last visit, mainly because they'd become so popular that the lines to get inside were just too long. J.A.M.S.S. moved over Memorial Day weekend to a larger location on the Boston Post Rd next to Chalker Beach Rd. Their new spot has more tables & staff, a larger kitchen AND THEY'RE STILL JAMMED. The breakfast... More

The food was great! The poached eggs with avacado and arugula over flat bread was light and delicious. The staff friendly and the restaurant, newly renovated open ans welcoming. A definite return visit!

New address:1522 Boston Post Road Old Saybrook Finishing up a late breakfast and had to stop to rave about this place before I leave. They just moved to a new location. Don't pass by without giving them a try. Just had the "Ali"...one of the best light breakfasts I've ever had without question. A must for locals and visitors alike.

JAMSS has moved to Westbrook. We have been coming here for many years on a Sunday for breakfast or brunch. We were happy to see a slightly larger space in the new location, cleaner, and more tables. The owner greeted us and sat us right away. I was shocked to see empty tables. We ordered and waited 1 hour and... More
