I have not read other reviews but I can guess what they said after giving this a try. Reading the menu is a blast and make sure you look at the prices of some of the items. They mix fun in with the dishes which are way way to large for one person to eat. Best bet is to slice... More

This little cafe gets a little crowded at times but a little bit of patience will be rewarded! An original Mom and Pop local hot spot, they serve only breakfast and lunch. You can't go wrong with either. Portions are very generous and prices are amazing for the quality of the meals. Put this place on your "must try" list.

Meeting friends half way between Cleveland and Chicago, so ended up in Jackson. Looked at previous TA reviews and picked Roxy Cafe as the place to meet for a late breakfast. A great "mom an pop" type place, lots of local flavor, and a varied, well-priced menu. The food was very good, and the portions generous. Did not have to... More

Plenty of menu items, some unusual and all delicious. Portions are generous, the waitstaff very pleasant, the prices are reasonable. Much like Schlenker's hamburgers in Jackson, this is one place you simply have to experience.

We enjoyed our first breakfast at the Roxy Cafe this morning. We didn't have to wait to be seated. Three of the four of us had an omelet. The fourth person had a short stack of pancakes. The food was very tasty with generous portions. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful and were kept busy in this smaller... More

The omelets are great and so are foods on the side. The waitresses are are hardworking and keep a lot balls in the air at once. The complaint I have with the restaurant is not their fault. Because it's so amazing it is always crowded and sometimes you have to listen to idiots whine about waiting. Jesus, you're at the... More

I wouldn't go anywhere else for a sit-down breakfast. This is a local favorite. It's reasonably priced and the food is ALWAYS good! The only down-side is that the restaurant is only open for a few hours in the morning and early afternoon.

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way out of town after a night in Jackson. I found it through Urbanspoon and it had GREAT reviews. Well...the reviews were RIGHT! This place was charming, quaint, and just down right perfect. At 11:45 on a weekday, this place was still pretty packed with locals, which I take as a good... More

The Roxy is a Jackson classic. It is your typical greasy spoon breakfast joint...small, old, and PACKED on weekend mornings. All breakfast items are good but the omelettes are the best. If you have never been to The Roxy, be sure to try one! Don't let the small store front fool you: park in back and just walk into the... More
