Good Breakfast

Had a very good breakfast at the Jailhouse cafe. My son and I both had the ginger pancakes and enjoyed them. Staff was very nice and attentive. The only downside for me was I felt the menu was somewhat limited.

We stopped in before visiting nearby parks and wowza! Yummy fresh breakfast. Dining inside or on patio and the building has history as well. Staff was super nice and fairly attentive.

This place offers fast service and extensive breakfast menu. Everything was more than adequate. Just two things: your coffee is strong, but doesn't have enough flavor, because you use Italian roast. Use medium roast coffee, but larger quantity to make it flavorful. The other remark is although you selected a catchy and trendy name for the cafe, you did not... More

Very expensive and we were not impressed with the food or the staff. Lady seating us was not terribly friendly to guests ahead of us. But she tried to help us out with our son. Hash browns were very greasy and not edible. I had a large scramble plate and picked out the potatoes.

Nice little place with good food. The side of bacon is VERY good bacon. Our waiter the first morning was great but the next day the waitress seemed to want to be somewhere else. The food was good both days. Would eat here next time we are in Moab.

We passed this place every day on our way in and out of Moab. They close at noon. On the last day we made it for breakfast. Great food, lots of it and great service.

Rarely do you encounter a restaurant with as exceptional of wait staff as Jailhouse Cafe. I believe Adam was our server (I hope I have that right!! Red hair, extremely polite?). My husband and daughter have special medical dietary restrictions and Adam went out of his way to accommodate us. You cannot know how happy this made us as we... More

The restaurant is in multiple, very old buildings with a lot of character. Quaint! Delicious, home-style cooking.

This place has a great breakfast, the bacon was so good. There was a nice outdoor patio, and the service was great.

Absolutely the finest breakfast in Moab, and probably the best breakfast anywhere in the entire State of Utah. Wonderful selection of tantalizing eggs (sometimes as benedicts, or florentines), pancakes, waffles, French toast (sometimes stuffed) and other breakfast items. They open early (7am) and get very busy...and for good reason. They serve only breakfast, and breakfasts don't get any better than... More
