Eight of us had breakfast here on two different days. Everyone really liked their food and the service was also very good. You can eat inside the building, plus you can eat outside in a semi enclosed buiding which is where we ate. I think that they are know for their great eggs benedict, and they did not disapoint. They... More

The food was above average. I took 19 people to breakfast, kids and parents and grandparents. Several people were thrilled, several thought is was OK. Mine was OK. I expected much more for the price, even though it is priced in a seasonal area. I paid 30% more than expected. Bacon, eggs and pancakes (even eggs benedict) are not lochs... More

The food is great, however, it is already overpriced. I ordered a waffle and asked for some maple syrup. When the server bright me the check, I saw she charged me $3.75 for a side of syrup, with a waffle! This now brings the grand total of my one waffle to $15! I don't mind paying for good food, but...

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. It sounds like there might have been a miscommunication. We charge for "real" maple syrup not table syrup. Because as I am sure you know its quite expensive. Not sure what you were asking for. I will talk with my servers about communicating this more. It is stated on our menu. Thank... More

We like to stop at the Jailhouse cafe when we are in Moab primarily for their pancakes. The last time we were in town this past May we were unable to get a table in our desired time frame as the wait was 45 minutes and we had a baby in our group that wasn't up to waiting. So...the wait... More

It looked so charming we thought we'd give it a try. On entering the restaurant there was the usual "Please wait to be seated" sign, so we waited - and waited and waited. A server went right by us several times and finally asked if we'd been helped and we were led to the "patio" section (we never did see... More

My husband and I recently vacationed in Utah visiting all of the national parks. We stayed in Moab as a base for visiting Arches and Canyonlands. The Jailhouse Cafe was recommended. It is conveniently located in the middle of town. There was a line when we arrived and were told the wait would be approximately 20-30 minutes. They have seating... More

If I am in Moab for several days I try to do at least one breakfast here. Great coffee and service. Love the enclosed patio seating. Since I make 1-2 trips to Moab per year, I am lucky enough to get served by Wendy sometimes. She has been here for a long time. So upbeat, friendly and sweet. I've always... More

We have traveled to Moab several time and always have breakfast at the Jailhouse. The poached egg dishes are best we have had anywhere.

We went for an early breakfast before heading out to arches. Service was excellent, and the food was good but I didn't think it lived up to the hype. I had the southwestern eggs Benedict, which was good but not $11 good. Ginger pancakes were also good but expensive. I liked it but for the price I would just as... More
