“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

While driving along on our vacation, we decided that we better stop and find a place to have breakfast, when coming up to The Dalles, not knowing if there was any place else offering decent fare along our route. So we punched "restaurants" into our GPS and came up with Mammma Janes. Upon arriving at the packed parking lot in the otherwise empty town, we knew we had hit upon the right spot. Although the service was a bit quirky, the food was fantastic! And there was so much of it. We all had a most wonderful breakfast (I had one of the exceptional omelets). We were all very full, and we took away a big plate full of leftovers for us to snack on along the way.

“Darn Good Breakfast - Thanks Momma!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

On a weekend motorcycle trip to Hood River - The Dalles area, we were told by locals to stop in to Momma Janes for breakfast. Great tip! We were waited on by the owner who was the most pleasant lady ever. We enjoyed everything from the fresh coffee, to the nice thick slices of bacon and ham, The fluffy scrambles eggs and the huge pancakes served with an assortment of syrups. All very reasonably priced. This will definitely be our go-to spot any time we're in the area.

“Basic Breakfast place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Had a typical diner type breakfast here. Positives were the staff and location and clientele that reflected the genuine nature of the locals. Served a poor substitute for maple syrup with the pancakes. Portions large.

“Not impressed , wasn't bad, but wasn't worth praise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

A couple of us went here as locals raved about the place. We were expecting a lot more than what we got. It was just a so so meal, with so so service. Nothing bad but nothing like the Baldwin in service and food.

“Good choice for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Full of locals, very friendly, quick service, very accommodating. Had a good eggs benedict. When I requested no potatoes, fruit or anything with it, I was pleasantly surprised to find they adjusted the bill. That has never happened to me before! The eggs were perfectly cooked. Will eat there any time I am in The Dalles.
