One of the best breakfast places on the CT shoreline!

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.

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

I've always enjoyed JAMSS, however, was a bit disappointed this visit. The staff is very friendly and I noticed regulars are greeted by name. With the exception of the home fries (yummy with rosemary!), the rest of the breakfast was a bit bland. Also the freshly squeezed o.j. tasted watered-down and priced $4.00/small glass seemed excessive.
