Breakfast deliciousness!

We ate breakfast here and couldn't have been more pleased. Service was excellent and very friendly. Interesting décor, handmade crafts, etc. Restaurant was clean. Food was great. This is better food than what I would expect to come by in a town like Chemult.

There are not many choices for food between Klamath Falls and Eugene, however, KJs Cafe formerly Wagon Wheel is a sure bet for quick, friendly service with surprisingly good food. Highly recommended!

The Wagon Wheel is known as KJ's now. Very clean but the restrooms are in the basement so don't go in if you can't do stairs. The "art" gallery is down there also. Waitress was friendly but a little slow. I like to try chicken fried steak but KJ's was deep fried and not hand breaded and not good. Eggs... More

This establishment is now called KJ's. According to what we were told by a local, the owners have had it for 3-4 years, but have just not gotten around to taking the Wagon Wheel Café sign down. Two had breakfast, for a total of $21....oatmeal (generous portion served with brown sugar and raisins), breakfast sandwich, one scrambled egg and a... More

We had breakfast here, the food was plenty, fresh and good, unfortunately the waitress had a bad morning. Could not bear to communicate in a friendly matter, maybe it was too early. She also changes the amount on our bill to tip herself more as we found out on our creditcard invoice later. A bit of a sad action as... More

The waitress was surly and inattentive. The corned beef hssh came out of a can and looked and tasted like dog food.

Now if you are expecting gourmet food, skip KJ's. In fact, skip Chemult. You are not going to find it in this town. what you are going to find is standard diner fair done as well as it can be with good flavors and good service. Yes, there's a lot of frying going on, but the food is not greasy,it... More

We had a great time here, more for the service then the food. Don't get me wrong, the food was fine. Good portion size and high quality. Sandwiches and soup were hot, and fresh. The best part was our server. He had a dry, somewhat sarcastic tone, that might be a put off to some, but we loved it! Typing... More

We were on our way from Medford to Crater Lake to Bend when we stopped in at the now renamed KJ's Wagon Wheel Cafe. It was around 2pm on the 5th of July and the place was pretty busy with the long-holiday-weekend-travelers out in force. This is truly a roadside-diner-style-restaurant with mom-pop and daughter playing their respective roles in the... More

You couldn't ask for a more genial group. They are professional and have a solid menu. My salad was nice and fresh and the steak was perfectly medium rare. A great team of restaurant workers.
