“Yummy Lunch in Jackson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went for a few hours to Jackson. We had lunch here.
I had a big salad with cranberries and bleu cheese. I am not a big fan of bleu cheese but the salad was very good and the portion was generous.
My husband had a pot roast sandwich which was also very tasty.
The only thing that did not taste stellar was the banana nut muffin we had. It was a bit dry because it might have been from the day before or just too crumbly.
I would go there again when we are visiting Jackson again. It was a nice locally owned cafe which we like to support.
The staff was really friendly and nice too. They also have a cafe in Sutter Creek, CA.

“Great lunch in Jackson, California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We recently had lunch at Thomi's with a bunch of friends en route to Columbia State Park. Service could not have been better and the food was very good and plentiful with more choices than you could select in a week. Our group of eight had everything from Cobb Salad to Quiche Lorraine to good old fashioned giant hamburger to omelettes and it was all very good both as to quality and quantity. Plus it was COOL inside (108F outside). Kind of hard to fathom the negative reviews...all eight of us thought it was great and very reasonably priced.

“Always closed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I'm not sure if they are even open anymore. Guess they couldn't make a go of it in such a small community. The one in Jackson is open and has good food.

“Good food, OK service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I have been here a couple of times--twice with a book group of about 6-7 people. The service was just OK, even though there were few other customers. I like the quiche, which is served with salad and fruit. The last time I was there last month, I found the quiche to be very good, while the salad was not as good---more iceberg lettuce and less romaine/darker greens. I will be back and will try something different next time.

“Cute place but food disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We had eaten at Thomi's in Sutter Creek and loved it. This place is larger and the decor is charming, but the food was very disappointing. We love Thomi and think that she is a great hostess. But the food here is not like we had at the original place in Sutter Creek. It all tasted like it came from cans, (soup, etc.) and the coleslaw was pretty weak. We really wanted to like it!!
