Great Little Place for Lunch or . . .

We really like this place. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The employees are pleasant and readily make suggestions if you seem indecisive about what to pick. The sandwiches are full of ingredients and very good. The service is quick and you never feel hurried to vacate your table. They... read more

Despite an almost entirely empty cafe (2 other patrons were waiting for their lunch) my cappuccino took an extraordinarily long time to prepare and arrived improperly made with milk that was sour. The baristas are clearly not trained properly and appeared to be extremely frazzled in the kitchen. Pity because the location is convenient.

The latte's are small but it's enough to get us in the door and want more. What a quaint little coffee shop - serves homecooked breakfast in the AM. Wonderful little place.

We strive to support local businesses and heard positive reviews about Jak's Cafe from a number of locals. So today we gave it a try - we like little hole in the wall places like that. I'm giving it 3 stars because the server was very friendly and efficient. My husband had the lunch special Chicken Alfredo - priced under... More

We went here for lunch on a weekend -- just driving around, saw it and decided to give it a try. The place is small, family run, and the service was very personal. The soup is made fresh every day (had tomato and it was very good) and the sandwiches are custom made to order. Healthy stuff. I'm looking forward... More

After reading others reviews, I'm very surprised. We recently relocated to the area and wanted to try something in downtown. This place was fabulous!! From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family. The staff was super friendly. Great service! And the food was delicious. Not to mention, the soup and cookies are made from scratch. And there... More

My husband and I arrived mid-morning and only the owner was there, taking orders, cooking & serving. Several people arrived at the same time and a group of six about 20 minutes after we got there. We placed our order and waited and waited and waited. I will say my latte was lovely, but after that it was downhill. We... More

First time customer at Jak's the third Saturday in Sept. We arrived about 10 minutes after they opened and waited to order. We requested the "Look for our Homemade Biscuits & Gravy or Fresh Fruit Crepes on the first and third Saturdays of each month"! We were told they only have that on the first Sat. of the month which... More

Good home made food. Plenty of outdoor area to sit with sun umbrellas available. Good coffee and deserts and lots of good sandwiches to choose from.
