“Awesome breakfast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Jim's does breakfast right. Huge portions, delicious food that's prepared fresh--there's a reason the line is always out the door.

Their wraps are also very good, and you can't go wrong with any of their sandwich plates. They even deliver.

“Good portion size, decent food, average cleanliness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Saw this restaurant was highly rated on many websites. Stopped in on Sunday for brunch with the family. Friendly staff and good portion sizes are definitely a strong plus. The Guatemalan omelette was a new dish that I have not tried before. The one negative I have is that the cleanliness of the restaurant itself, the cutlery and the kitchen area (which is open to view) did not inspire confidence. The other negative was that the beans used as filling in the omelette did not feel freshly cooked- was either canned or cooked a day earlier.
But overall, the food was filling and I think overall it would be a good dig for students and yuppies for brunch.

“Tasty Breakfast Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Great breakfast on a Sat/Sun morning after a good night out before. Omelets, wraps, sandwiches, I'm going back when I'm in Boston again.

Good:

-The Guatemala
-Chocolate Chip Pancakes
-Good for groups up to 4-5
-Big menu with lots of choices

Bad:
-Gets crowed (Cafeteria style) but seats become available as you wait

Had an awesome breakfast here this morning. You just have to love little local places like this! It is the favorite local restaurant of our son and his wife - and now we know why!

The staff here is really friendly and you can tell they're always having fun at work. The food is very good, big portions and reasonable prices. Very good for breakfast and lunch! Worth the stop.
