Best place so far.

Headed to see the Blue Angels fly and decided to stop here for breakfast, based on other reviews. Really surprised by the choices, prices, and quality of food. My wife had the country ham and egg biscuit, daughter had the blueberry pancakes with bacon, and I had the second best French toast I've... read more

We discovered this place for breakfast and returned each day we were there. Ended up having beignets for dessert both days too. To die for! Staff was friendly and we even interacted with the cook, who is visible from the dining area. Lots of locals on hand, kept the coffee fresh, very inexpensive too. Great place to check out, and...

We love to eat at local restaurants, especially for breakfast. There were four of us and between us we ate eggs, hash browns, pancakes, country ham, and toast. It was simple food, cooked to order, served with a good attitude. We arrived at 8:30 on a Sunday morning and had no trouble getting a table. By the time we left... More

We got a groupon ahead of time. Great value, lots of food. Busy place. They close at 2:00 PM daily. I enjoyed my brunch

I love coming to small mom and pop joints; but this one was a bit off. Arriving we were not bombarded with cars in the parking lot but it did take time for the service to notice we were seated, food was slow but decent; filled me up (breakfast). While sitting and enjoying my meal, the door keep opening filing... More

One of our favorite breakfast diners. We always make it a point to visit CJ's for breakfast while we are on vacation in Pensacola. On our latest visit I ordered their Crawdad omelet. Stuffed full of crawdad tails and topped with a hollandaise sauce. Very tasty to say the least. We always receive good service and never leave hungry. We... More

My husband and I like to go there for breakfast. We are stuffed when we leave. They offer a great selection and huge portions. I never fail to compliment the cook when we pay our bill.

We now live 12 miles farther away from CJ's than before and we tried a number of places on this side of town for breakfasts. None of them were as good. Look for their specials, like the gumbo skillet and the catfish breakfast. My favorite on the regular menu is their New Orleans Napoleon. Having said that, we've never eaten... More

Old school neighborhood dinner feel. Jazz playing on the speaker. The place could use a good deep clean up in a few spots, but overall, ok. Pretty quick service, friendly waitress- Mary. The person bringing the food was pleasant but dry. (I hate when people are talking to me but walking away). I ordered the 2+2+2, eggs bacon pancakes. Eggs... More
