Interesting atmosphere but amazing homestyle food. We are fans!! Tip: Just be aware that Lazy Jane's accepts cash only, so come prepared.

"Funky" best describes this eastside Madison favorite. For us it's a hike across town but there really isn't anywhere on the westside we like as much. We usually order a homemade scone and some of Lazy Jane's hot, strong coffee while we wait for our cooked breakfast, which tends to arrive promptly even when the place is heaving with customers....

Visited on a Sunday morning and there was a line outside the door. Don't bother going in, that's the line to order your food. When you order they give you a light up pager then you sit and drink your excellent coffee. When your food is ready you pick it up yourself. Friendly people, excellent tasty food and most importantly... More

Stopped in for Sunday brunch. Cheerful, efficient staff, eclectic bohemian vibe. My husband and daughter liked their chorizo scramble and pastries. I did not like the chicken salad croissant sandwich. It was salty and boring. Coffee was very good. All pastries are made at bakery.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. I love the funky tables. You do order at the counter and get your own food. If that isn't a issue for you the food is always amazing and the staff are friendly and quick. They have gluten free, and vegan options. Well worth the visit any day of the week!

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

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!
