So THIS is why this place is rated so highly! Absolutely wonderful food at very reasonable prices, with large portions and friendly service. Best meal we had in Moab. Try the bacon!

After our adventure with Canyonlands Ballooning we drove into town and had Eggs Benedict and other delights at the Jailhouse Cafe. We enjoyed it very much.

I was told that this was one of the best places in the country to have breakfast. I would say it was just average. Service was ok, food was ok. In terms of Moab it is probably the best place to have breakfast.

A very cute place with great food and SUPER quick service. I loved this certain pancake dish that was kind of like crepes. The food was definitely good and the people made sure that you enjoyed it there. I would definitely recommend going there for breakfast.

The food was not only very good, but it came out really fast! The Swedish Pancakes are the way to go if you're into pancakes. Absolutely recommend eating here at your stay!

A nice breakfast out of the air conditioned. You'll eat outside without getting cold a large choice of food.
