Of all the times we've stayed in Moab, even for a week at a time for mountain biking, we've never been able to get into the Jailhouse Cafe. Usually the line stretches halfway down the block. So we were determined to get a table this time, and were there just as they opened for the day. As we walked back... More

Unusual selection for folks from out of town, but was a great new experience. The history of the place is unique and we enjoyed having our meal outdoors. The staff was great too.

I say hipster but maybe the right word is popular. There was a pretty long wait when I was there. We just beat the rush so I don't know how long it was. It looked closed when I went by in November 2014 but if it's still open, I say do it because the breakfast was great.

Great place. Nice indoor and outdoor seating. It fueled us up right for a day at Arches. The food is excellent and the story behind the building is very neat. Old jailhouse/courthouse from gold rush days. It is authentic atmosphere much better than some of the kitsch decorations at other Moab eateries. Attentive service. The pancakes were great as was...

Went there for breakfast and was disappointed. Food was to pricey and not that great. I would not go back.

Enjoyed this place, although we had to wait quite a while for a table. Straight breakfast menu, nothing unusual but very good stuff.

Don't let the size of the place from the road fool you. They have plenty of room outside or inside. Waitress was friendly and prompt. I had the Jailhouse original scramble and my friend had the Southwestern Eggs Benedict. Both were delicious. Enough to feed four people. I just wished we would have stopped in on Monday instead of our... More

But they do it very well. I loved this quaint little breakfast joint. Great food!. The Eggs Benedict were good as were the Swedish Pancakes with lingenberry jam. Very friendly staff.
