Their signs outside advertised some unusual pancakes so we had to try and we certainly weren't disappointed. The ginger pancakes with apple butter were scrumptious and the bacon and cheese omelet was great as well. We will go back!

I will first have to say its a little pricey for breakfast :( I did enjoy my waffle, daughter had the ginger pancakes but, the ginger overpowered them she did not like, & my hubby had the Spanish scramble (I think that's what it was called) that was very good. Take time to read the menu it tells the "history"... More

The Jailhouse Café offers the best breakfast in Moab. Well worth the wait to get in. The waitress was very accommodating to our children and extremely friendly. One of the best egg bennies we have tried.

Had a great breakfast here. The service if anything was a bit over the top, the only time whilst in America that I thought the waitress was putting on an act! Would happily eat here again.

We had different menu items: The ginger pancakes and the breakfast scramble with chorizo. We ate outside to enjoy the patio. Unfortunately the distance from the kitchen cooled our dishes and they arrived only warm rather than hot. My pancakes were fluffy and very tasty with the apple butter. However the egg scramble was a bit greasy due to the... More

We ate breakfast here on Sunday morning. Service was great and food came quick. We got the Eggs Benedict (good but a little too greasy), bacon and cheese omelet (good and mostly bacon - a little too cheesy ), chorizo scramble (good but lots of potato). No complaints though. Highly recommend the ginger pancake with Apple butter. It was amazing!... More

Great outdoor seating, quiet and peaceful. The waffle was great, fresh orange juice, good coffee. Stopped on our way out of town with no real expectations and were very pleasantly surprised.

Bright energetic waitress, great rib sticking breakfast (bacon is amazing!~) in casual outdoor shade setting. U shaped seating and center of the "U" is a lovely black eyed Susan garden. Best part? (OK bacon as the best part.) Second best part? They have a fenced side yard off dining deck so dogs can romp while owners eat just on the... More

Our breakfast was just average, nothing to really remember it by. The food and service were not bad, just not really something interesting. Liked the setting outdoors but little else. Sorry.

Passing thru to back home. Great stop for some Benedict, thick bacon and coffee. The staff was very friendly and accommodating too. I would def stop again to try something else on the menu. And our 1 yr old loved the ginger pancakes. Road snack!
