“Not Wonderful, but Pretty Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

We had breakfast for lunch! My husband and I had the omelettes...I had the ridiculous one with meat and homefries and about 23908 other ingredients. Homefries were great. Omelettes were good. Server was excellent. Glad we went, but not sure I'd return.

“Best Breakfast on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

Well I've been travelling to St John for 5 years and could never find a hearty breakfast. Most of my family does not join on the search so I was on my own. I finally found Jake's in the Lumberyard and found my breakfast. The corn beef hash was so good that I had to find my way to the kitchen and hug everyone in the back room. The pancakes we terrific as well ... if you enjoy a hearty breakfast don't miss this place ... and don't forget the hug !!!

“Awesome Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

They might be open long hours, but Jake's was our best bet for a great breakfast. Family run, cooked to order. The home made corn beef hash was the best that I have ever had.

“Jake's was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

Great food! Funky upstairs breakfast and late-night food and drink joint. A little light on atmosphere but the water views more than make up for it! Good prices, large portions and quality food. Plus, you just might be visited by little Jake himself, the owner's son and restaurant's namesake.
