Great breakfast, brunch, lunch spot

Good variety. Right in town. On-street parking. A bit noisy. Generous portions. A favorite local dining spot. Good value.

I have lived nearby for 28 years and never tried it. Finally went. Food was good but not anything to write home about. Probably won't go back but mostly because there was nothing super about it. Go early on the weekends...small place - could be a line.

I usually read reviews of places to eat when we are travelling....so good reviews of Jakes brought us here for breakfast. Eggs Benedict....extremely undercooked eggs, on top of slabs of ham covered with an unidentifiable gray/brown sauce...not even close to hollendaise...sickening...awful.... My husbands "fabulous" French toast was soggy and sweet....he was equally disappointed. ....my suspicion is that the regular locals... More

Based upon the reviews we decided to try this place for Sunday breakfast. It's not large and fills up fast so we decided to get there before noon. This was good as we were seated immediately. In true diner style you can get coffee (or tea) before you can even read the menu. We both highly recommend the home-made corned... More

Good coffee shop diner atmosphere, a tad busy noisy for Sunday brunch. Fast service once you are sat. Big serving sizes. And value. Great blue berry pancakes. Plenty of business and satisfied customers . Join 'em!

I was in town for a week on business and wanted to try a local favorite breakfast spot.. I found Jake's and since it was close to the hotel I decided to check it out. The staff, service and food were excellent, I sat at the counter next to a regular patron and ordered an omelet, he said he hoped... More

Best breakfast place around. Awesome combo choices, plenty of hot coffee, cold juice, wide selection including seasonal fare. They do serve lunch as well, but we've only done breakfast. Open til 2 Tuesday through Saturday, and 1 on Sunday. Sometimes have to wait to sit, small restaurant, but they do have a bar if you don't mind. Worth the trip

You definitely don't go here for the esthetics. It's small, a little dingy and smells like bacon but this dinner has the best breakfast. The homemade corn beef hash alone is worth the trip. My son said they were the best chocolate chip pancakes he's had. If you are not counting calories, try the loaded hash browns. Prices very reasonable.

My wife and I stopped here for a quick late breakfast on a Wednesday afternoon. The service was excellent as wss the food. Portions are American-sized and prepared perfectly. The French Toast is awesome!!!! We will definately be back and recommend this restaurant to everyone.
