Great Breakfast

Lots of options for breakfast and lunch. Good food and excellent service! It's always busy as it's a popular spot with the locals. Especially on the weekends.

The lunch here was excellent. I ate here for lunch every day I was in Vermont. I was surprised at how expensive the coffee was though.

We had breakfast here with a couple family members and, unfortunately, were not impressed. For the basics, eggs, bacon, waffle, etc. the food was good, but nothing special. Avoid anything that you could consider more upscale, such as eggs Benedict, as the sauce was not very good. A little overpriced in my opinion. They did have tasty looking homemade sandwiches...

JP's offers as wide variety of selections for both breakfast and lunch. Service is always fast, efficient and courteous. Servings are large and prices are very reasonable.

Went twice, once for breakfast and again for lunch. Huge portions of homemade food and absolutely delicious! Oh, and the added bonus? Very reasonably priced. I highly recommend checking them out, you won't regret it!

I love coming here for Breakfast (Sunday Brunch) with the family. The food and service are always excellent. Three of us had omelets with the $1 extra for the Homemade Toast - always have to go homemade - and my wife had pancakes which were great - but usually she goes with their eggs benedict for which the LOVES theirs.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast one morning recently when we were out riding our motorcycles with a group of friends. I had excellent eggs and bacon and my husband had eggs, ham, and pancakes. There was lots of good, filling food and very friendly service. We left feeling sated and satisfied. A nice comfy place to eat... More

I Love coming to this restaurant - always quick and friendly service. They make a fantastic omelet, and the homemade toast is wonderful. They have a bunch of pre built omelettes - but they are very accommodating and allow me to design the omelet as I choose. My wife get's their Eggs Benedict (her favorite breakfast dish) - and you...
