Excellent brunch here with some world class beignets! Having been to Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans, I can say that CJ's rivals their beignets. They melt in your mouth with plenty of powered sugar to spare! The brunch was great too, with a well made omelet with a side of hash browns and a biscuit. Great little diner with... More

Some issues with order detail but they were slammed standing room only. Food was good overall staff was friendly. Will eat there again. Always go for hash and beignets ;)

Loved the breakfast but the beignets were the best. My goodness I could eat those smothered in honey everyday. Staff was slow and didnt come over to refill our coffee. We had to get up and ask someone. Its ok though, the food is great.

Previously did fine with lunch and the deep fat fried fare. Definitely a good local greasy spoon with a lot of character. For breakfast, stick with the pancakes and French toast as recommended by others. The steak, while generous and render, was freezer burn bloody tasting despite the good seasoning on the outside. Horrible approaching rancid taste that will be... More

I have seen CJ's for years and always just judged a book by its cover. It doesn't look horrible, it just isn't inviting. After reading some reviews I went there this morning and man was I surprised. It is truly a diamond in the rough. Food was great, staff was very nice, and the hollandaise sauce is amazing. Don't judge... More

We were scheduled to be in Pensacola one day so I googled "best breakfast" and found CJ's. It was very good. I had the french toast. Others at my table ordered an omelette (huge), pancakes (big and fluffy), and breakfast basics. We all cleaned our plates.

Wow! Great home cooked food. Had the catfish basket, perfectly cooked and the homemade slaw was to die for! The special, chicken and pasta looked great as well. Each order cooked your style, will come back here to try others.

Been eating breakfast and lunch at CJ's for years. Never disappointed. Returning from the VA with my wife, yesterday, had breakfast in mind and went to CJ's. Aroma reminded me of many a wonderful grill both north and south. Small and off the the direct route to the beaches, it's only 5 minutes from downtown. My eggs etc, basic breakfast,... More

We saw a lot of good reviews, and so we gave it a try and were pretty disappointed. The crab cakes were bland and full of shells, and the French dip was very greasy. i suppose I could go back to try their breakfast, but their lunch left much to be desired.
