Sit outside. Enjoy the fresh air and outdoor ambiance! Wait staff fun and enthusiastic. I'm pretty sure I cleaned my plate! :) Only breakfast - nice little historical spot.

What a great breakfast experience. The food is excellent and the portions are generous. This place is very popular and there is usually a line waiting but things moved along faster than we expected. Service is also top notch. We went back again on our second day in Moab and again we were pleased. Will return our next time we... More

We needed a good breakfast before heading to Canyonlands and we found it. What a wonderful place with a fresh and open atmosphere to enjoy breakfast. Ate outside under the roofed area. Found the menu challenging to chose from with all the excellent offerings. Finally chose the Jailhouse Chorizo Scramble and found it meeting all my expectations. Another in my... More

We had breakfast at the jailhouse (waffles and eggs benedict) The food was very nice however we thought it was quite expensive since its "just" breakfast.

The food is okay, but there needs to be a bigger selection and options. I'm allergic to walnuts, so my first choice of multi-grain waffles was out since the nuts are in the batter. I wish they'd leave the nuts out all together. The ginger pancakes were good, but I could have done without the apple butter spread. The potatoes... More

We choose this restaurant because they had a picture of an omelet and my husband has to have eggs for breakfast. The price was a little disconcerting for two eggs, bacon and potatoes it was around $11 but then the bacon came...It is EXCELLENT bacon. I had the bacon and cheese omelet and it was packed full of bacon. So... More

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...
