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

Went for lunch. Be sure to stop at a restroom before you go as theirs has been out of order (at least for customers). They don't think this is too crucial as their food is very good. Service with a smile.....no way, rather service with a frown. Again, food was very good.....but they need to pay as much attention to... More

My husband and I traveled to CT for some prime leaf peeping (beginning with “Fall Foliage Tour...River Rambles Along Route 9) in addition to visiting some charming little towns, such as Old Saybrook. I compiled recommendations from fellow T.A. contributors and came up with three options for lunch in Old Saybrook. When we first arrived at J.A.M.M.S. location in a... More

I had seen this restaurant featured on a local new cast. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with my visit. I did wait a while to be seated but this place is very small so it was to be expected. When I finally was seated it them over an hour to bring us our food. The wait would've been fine if... More

J.A.M.S.S. has great reviews on TA and Yelp, so maybe we were there on a bad day....but, we were staying overnight in the area and decided to bike here to have breakfast because of all the great reviews. I really don't think it was worth it. The first thing that was a bid of a turn off was the cramped... More

I don't stop here often because I'm either on a diet or the line waiting to get in is stretching across the parking lot. J.A.M.S.S. is tiny, just 9 small tables and 4 seats at the counter, but the variety of choices for breakfast is incredible. The menu is extensive. My wife had the portabella omlette and I had the...

We have enjoyed the excellent food, the imaginative and innovative menu, and the very good service almost as long as they have been open. Therefore we decided to hire JAMSS to cater for a family and friends cocktail party for 40 odd people. We made the right choice. Not only were the selections varied but they were favorably received by... More
