Jailhouse cafe is in the heart of Moab, in an old Jailhouse from the early days of the west. I really enjoyed this place. I had the Swedish Pancakes and the Whole Grain Waffles. Overall it's a good place to have breakfast....but....it's a bit pricey for pancakes and waffles. If you're in Moab, it's worth trying out once.

This restaurant only serves breakfast and they do a good job. We ate inside due to rainy weather but they do have a patio. As someone said, the bacon is very good, and the whole wheat waffle was large and served with bananas and strawberries and excellent as well. Hubby's eggs were cooked as he asked and he loved the...

Food is very good, service was good. Sat outside and enjoyed the morning before it got too hot. Pancakes and eggs benedict are yummy.

the bacon is to die for...we definitely don't get anything like that on Cape Cod...Sitting outside in moab, under the trees and in the shadow of the original jailhouse eating a DELICIOUS breakfast was just ONE of the highlights of our time here. This is a must for bacon-lovers!

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
