We were in the area for a wedding and wanted to find a good local eatery for breakfast. We checked Tripadvisor and found Jake's and we were glad we did. We went on a Sunday morning at about 8:15 and the place was packed, but we were lucky enough to be seated immediately. Our waitress, Tracey Lee, couldn't have been... More

This used to be a restaurant to go to for a great breakfast. My past two visits have been unpleasant and unappetizing. The service was horrible. The servers spent more time gossiping and leaning over us while trying to eat. The food hash browns were cold, the eggs were over cooked and the bacon wasn't crispy. I could deal with... More

I went here on the recommendation of a local. The food is hearty and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately, there is an overabundant amount of grease used when cooking. This resulted in an ensuing stomach ache. Perhaps if one eats here all the time, this is not an issue. However, I expected better food from a place that had quite... More

A great breakfast. The homemade hash was wonderful. Big portions and friendly staff make this a perfect spot for a power breakfast.

I have been dining here for the past 20 years, so my opinion may be a bit biased. The restaurant has changed hands a few time since then, but their menu continues to be an excellent variety of home made and specialized fair. For a great home cooked meal experience you would be hard pressed to find anything comparable in... More

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning on recommendation from a friend we were visiting in the area. You can tell it's a popular spot with the locals. It was jam packed and we had to wait about 5-7 minutes for a table (and a line built up behind us) but it was worth it. It was a... More

Jakes has great food including hearty oatmeal, healthy fruit, perfect eggs and waffles. Little touches like hot chocolate and whipped cream make Jakes a family favorite. If you want to to see the real Marlboro, eat at Jakes

Jakes is a great spot for breakfast or lunch. The food is always great and the service is even better. They have everything on the menu from breakfast food to lunch entrees and everything in between, works out great anytime of day. Interesting people watching to say the least, but clearly entertaining!

I was at Jake's this past Saturday. My eggs were perfect, "over light", bacon was light and crispy, and pancakes big and fluffy. Jake's is small and you might have to wait in line on the weekends, but it is by far the best place around. I would recommend to anyone to try it at least once and you will... More
