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.

Great breakfast - style in food with quality ingredients. A bit crowded with average service. No rest room. Nice food presentation made to order.

I threw the calorie-counting out for this place. I went because of reviews I read here. I had a ham, swiss and avocado omelette and English muffin -- really yummy -- but the killer was the house version of something called a donut muffin, rolled in butter, sugar and cinnamon. Come on. Did they know I was coming? I can... More
