We used to visit weekly but unfortunately due to a horrible experience this morning with the extremely rude hostess and nasty waitress, we won't be returning. We were treated so poorly and rushed. It's a shame how badly the service has fallen here due to the miserable staff.

We ate at Jake's for lunch. I ordered a hot turkey sandwich and my wife ordered a salad with shrimp. The food was tasty but the portions were very small - we were both hungry afterward. The prices were reasonable but would have been better if the portion was larger. It is similar to a diner but much smaller portions.

I live in Newtown and have heard many good reviews about the breakfast here. I finally got a chance to give it a try. the place was pretty crowded for a Tuesday morning. Looked like a good sign. The restaurant is very open. Sort of diner feeling. Could be a bit more cozy in my opinion. We were seated immediately.... More

The food is consistently delicious, and the staff is always friendly. They often have a crowd waiting to eat on the weekends, but they work hard to keep the line moving fast. Good breakfast and lunch options, and very reasonably priced.

We really enjoy breakfast and lunch here, and have been here many times, but this cafe can get very busy. The wait is usually pretty fast, as they seem to serve very quickly, and wait staff efficient. I have had specials, which is what I often choose, and regular items, and only had one item I thought was ok, versus... More

Ok, I like this place, it's convenient, have great specials, but they really have one thing that earned them only 3 stars. Their home fries are like mush. Don't know where the cook ever learned how to cook them but on my recent visit they were so discussing after one bite that was it. When the server picked up my... More

Probably the best breakfast place in Newtown even though breakfast is just OK. Hopefully the area will get a quality breakfast place one day. Lunches and dinners are marginal at best.

Had a particularly great breakfast yesterday with 3 other couples. The food comes out quick and hot, always delicious, the service is excellent and we all love to sit in Angie's section. I have brought so many family members and friends here and everyone loves it.

The restaurant is understaffed and underwhelming. Waited for coffee. 2 waitresses on the floor for a full restaurant at breakfast.
