Lazy Jane's serves a lovely breakfast, and their scones are heavenly. There is no table service--when your order is ready, they either shout your name or give you a pager and you pick up your order.Seating can be a little iffy sometimes once the place gets crowded. If all you're looking for is a scone, they have a bakery annex... More

I'm not from the Madison area, but I would move there just to eat at this establishment, daily! The food is made-to - order so it's hot, and always incredibly delicious! They have gluten free options, Vegan, and traditional plates, and you can order anything on the menu and eat like a King/Queen! As a chef, I seek out the... More

This place was so fun! The atmosphere and staff were so fun, and the food was amazing! Everything on the menu sounded so good, and everyone I ate with really enjoyed what they got. Would definitely revisit this place!

Nice place for breakfast in Madison. Interesting decorations and a friendly atmosphere. The service was quick and food very tasty. You order and pick up yourself and the system works great. Good value for the money. The name in Scrabble tiles on the side of the building is cute

Cute place for breakfast. Quirky decor, good coffee, great baked goods. Fun, funky place to start the day. Lots of hot selections too, including a mac & cheese pancake!

Our son live around the corner from this very good breakfast place. It is quite busy but the service is friendly and cheerful. We I has scrambled eggs with bacon cheese and jalapeño and thought it was excellent. The coffee was great. I usually do not like to eat at places where I order at a counter and have to... More

This is a great local place for breakfast. A little off the beaten path but there are charming stores on Williamson (Willy) Street if you ate too much and need to walk a little afterward. I LOVE their scones. They are a nice biscuit type scone, not too dry and not too sweet. The lemon or blackberry are the best.... More

I've lived in Madison for years and never had the chance to make it to this near east side landmark. This weekend I finally had a chance to rectify that after an early Sat. morning trip to the Farmer's Market. My wife and I arrived around 9am for breakfast. The cafe was busy but the service was efficient and there... More

We needed a breakfast place on our roadtrip and decided to try Lazy Jane's based on reviews. We were not disappointed. Had the egg sandwich and a scone. Excellent quality of food and delicious baked goods. Coffee was very good too.

Great place for breakfast or an afternoon coffee & snack. Good coffee, pastries & egg dishes. They make morning buns (like the old Ovens of Brittany's Brittany buns), scones, etc. There's a line in the morning, so go early or be prepared to wait. The logistics: you'll stand in line (go in the entrance by the street) and order at... More
