Great Way To Start Your Day

Jamms moved to a new and larger location last year because it is so popular for breakfast and lunch. The menu offerings are very creative and the presentations show the chef'/owner's respect for his profession. The quality of the product is always at the highest level.

Wait forever to get some youg kid with an attitude wearing dirty clothes and has no clue how to make a sandwich the first time so I thought I would give it a second try, this time same senario, after waiting a while for someone to finally emerge from a very unorganized dirty looking back room only to take my...

We had heard good things about J.A.M.S.S so we tried it this morning. The omelets were so undercooked that my wife could not eat hers. I ate mine but it was also very runny. We ordered mango for our toddler. It was really unripe and we couldn't give it to him because it was a choking hazard. What really got... More

This place is great. Its not cheap, for that go to McDonalds. The food is high quality and tastefully cooked and presented. Have eaten hear several times and it never is bad. You will most likely not be disappointed, except that it can be quite full at certain times and you might have to wait to get a seat.

Food is always amazing... so fresh and tasteful. However, every time I am there it usually takes 10 min. for a waiter/waitress to come acknowledge us. Servers sometimes forget to come back and take your plates after your done, or even ask if you need the check. I will usually go to the hostess to get it for us because... More

Situated in a small house on the Boston Post Road my son and I decided to try J.A.A.M.S. after reading Trip Advisor. The front part of the house is a deli and the back is a quaint restaurant. The menu offers extensive breakfast and lunch items. I was extremely impressed by the creativity and descriptions of the various omelettes, skillets,... More

I ate here today for the first time and I came away very impressed. It may be my favorite place on the Shoreline. The menu is a culinary maze of goodness! Everything looked better than the next thing and I felt like they had a few dozen items worth drooling over. We went with a banana chocolate chip muffin to... More

The food was wonerfully flavored and the chef knows how to pair what foods with what. The inside was clean and bright. They have a good size menu and I liked the large coffee cups on the tables. The service was good, but not great. Several ladies came to the table. One to bring menues, one to bring coffee, one... More

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 french toast is great, and the veggies and... 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
