Consistently good and great service!

This spot is a local favorite. The food is consistently good, the service is amazing, and the food comes out fast! Sometimes there is a line out the door, but most of the time we get in and out. Our favorite meals here are breakfast, but we have enjoyed lunch too. This is a regular spot for us!

JP's is a great spot for any meal of the day. However, I happen to enjoy our family breakfasts here the most. Good food, good service and reasonable prices.

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.
