A really nice place to go for breakfast. I liked it well enough when it was a "greasy spoon" sort of place in a previous incarnation, but now the menu is upgraded significantly. Interesting and hearty portions beyond the usual breakfast fare.

Jake's has been under new management for about a year or so. It's a no frills breakfast and lunch place, part of downtown and across from the court house. The food is great, just what we were looking for.

I had high expectations for this place as its supposedly the #2 restaurant in noho. I had a pancake with apples and walnuts with a side of sausage and OJ. My orange juice was so good, you could tell it was freshly squeezed. Also, sausage was amazing, but my pancake was terrible. It was burnt on the bottom and doughy... More

On a frigid Wednesday morning, my friend and I trudged through Northampton looking for a good, hearty, eggy breakfast. She had always wanted to try Jake's, but it was usually crowded. Now we know why! From the moment we were greeted when we opened the door to this warm, wood paneled, sunny place, I had a great vibe about it.... More

Was out hunting for a hot breakfast, you know, fried eggs, home fries, choice of meat....not so easy to find in downtown Northampton. Jake's was the place. Not crowded at 9 a.m., service was friendly, food came out pretty fast and it was delicious. Really fresh tasting, perfectly cooked over easy eggs...chunks of crispy skinned, well seasoned potatoes, sausage patties... More

I have been to Jake's twice - once for a private dinner function and once for breakfast. Both times I was very impressed with the food! It was delicious and very unique and the service was also great. It does get very busy on the weekends for breakfast so be prepared to wait. Coffee is available while you wait which... More

I like their black bean and egg with cornbread dish, which several breakfast places in Northampton serve. The portions are two-thirds the size of what they used to serve under different management, but that's the restaurant biz these days. What I can't understand is why it has to be so loud. The servers and hosts do not need to yell... More

Went on a Sunday morning at 8:30 and were seated immediately. The special "Hash of the Day" was made with roast duck, peas and carrots, and some delicious herbs that D and I tried to identify. It was outstanding. Service, great. A really nice breakfast.

We went to Jakes after reading reviews in trip advisor and were not disappointed. The food was well prepared , the choices were interesting and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I can see why this place was so highly rated. We will definitely return on our next trip to Northampton

Jakes went under a few transformations over the last couple of years. Being a above average breakfast and lunch spot in the 80's and 90's, it was sold doing quite well. The new owners decided to change the decor, cheapen the food, and failed at keeping the place clean....THEN...the chefs bought it. Spotless, timeless, and breakfast items fit for high... More
