“Bayard Cafe is super yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Smoothies are real good. It's hard not to get the country fried steak. My wife always gets the eggs benedict. I have tried several of their specials and they are tasty. Pork chop special is good too.

Crowded on a Saturday morning, but we got a table quickly and the breakfast food and service were excellent.

“Sunday breakfast is a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The Bayard Cafe provides great down home cooking. It provides a relaxed informal dining experience with healthy menu selections. On Sunday mornings it always attracts a good crowd of couples, families and groups. The weekly specials by day are posted on a large chalkboard high on the back wall. The breakfast special is listed on a smaller chalkboard outside the door.
There is an in house bakery with takeout rolls and breads. There is a selection of omelets as well as eggs, hot cakes and waffles to go along with sausage, grits and potatoes. I had the Big Boy with eggs, two sausage patties, grits and three hot cakes. My wife had the Build Your Own omelet with bacon, swiss cheese, spinach, grits and rye toast. The food was delivered hot and timely.
The wait staff was attentive and kept our coffee mugs full with superb coffee. The Cafe is the epitome of your neighborhood eating establishment even if you don't really live in the area. The owners certainly make you feel like you are part of the neighborhood.

“Best in its class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Finally had the opportunity to try this one out, not once but twice the same week. And, I'll be back! That's because I love small local cafe's and this one in particular is probably the best in its class anywhere, and that includes its competitor cafe down on CR 210! Staff are actually FRIENDLY locals who are cheerful and non-judgemental toward their customers. They also do not carry all the local negative gossip and even better, they are fast and efficient!

The food is the best in Jax for local cafes, maybe the best I have eaten anywhere in small locally owned independent restaurants. That includes both breakfast and lunch. Portions sizes are large. For example, their competitor cafe on 210 serves up greasy undercooked 2 slices of bacon for breakfast. But Bayard serves up perfectly cooked and presented 4 slices of applewood bacon. The eggs are also perfectly prepared while their local competitor serves up a small amount of greasy eggs. Also, their decaf coffee REALLY IS DECAF, while their competitor substitutes caffinated. Patrons are loyal and there are no all day lingerers loudly hanging around annoying customers and staff.

I am very glad to have found this place - They have eared a new customer!!!
