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 went here for a late breakfast during the week. The food and service were both excellent and the price was about half of what we would have expected. The French Toast, (as well as everything else), was awesome! !!! We will be back and will recommend this cafe to everyone.

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
