Came for breakfast but could order breakfast or lunch all day! Love that! We had the rancher omelet and the hungry man steak and eggs! The breakfast potatoes(homefries) are spicy and soooo good! When I asked if they had any spiked coffee drinks, she told me no, not on the menu but she was creative and made me one! Thank... More

Wife and I have been to Jakes many times and always enjoy the good food and friendly service. The hotcakes taste so good along with many other choices. Just tell them what you want and they'll deliver. If your looking for a nice way to start your day then Jake's is the place in Cruz Bay..

A few years ago, my wife and I ate here based on a recommendation from a friend. In August we decided to have breakfast there on this trip. We were not disappointed. Any time a cook can make my sunny-side up eggs perfectly, deserves my kudos. The second floor location is also a great place to eat. You can look... More

Very convenient upon arrival to the island. A few parking spaces are available. Coffee was strong and really to our liking. We normally drink Starbucks black ice coffee. Home fries have great flavor. We ordered gramie's favorite omelet and the egg and cheese sandwich in wheat. Both were very delicious and service was friendly and fast. Reasonably priced for what... More

What a very cool place with awesome open air seating with a great view. Great family owned place named after one of their sons, Jake of course. The pancakes are so good and buttery, no syrup needed. Absolutely a must visit while staying in St Johns. We have visited this area for the past 3 years .... always eat at... More

Looking for a good St John breakfast spot? You've found it. Had Free wifi which was awesome for making people back home jealous, and the food was FIRE! Super cheap, view of the area from second story window we ate at and good food. I would come here every time.

Went to Jakes this morning looking for a different breakfast place. The parking is horrible. There were people in the lot trying to direct traffic but it was a pain. The views from the restaurant are awesome and the staff seemed very nice although I never once got a drink refill. I ordered eggs over medium and my eggs were... More

A surprising find for breakfast in a local neighborhood away from the busy thoroughfare of Cruz Bay. The French toast is a must try-tasting just like cinnamon rolls!

An unsuccessful attempt to find another restaurant because I had no GPS service on my phone, led us to stumble upon Jake's. What a happy surprise! We sat at the open window area that offers nice ocean views off in the distance. We both ordered the Philly steak sandwich and it was perfect. Good service, too. I love unexpected serendipitous...
