The first time I visited I was made to feel welcome! Tom gave us the history of the place and soon the food arrived - and it was delicious! I have been back a few times and it just gets better and better.

Service is fun, food is better than you expect but this is a great place to visit. It is a bit of a dive but that is the adventure. Breakfast is great!

Jimmy's Lunch is a breakfast and lunch place, and features nostalgia from the 50s, and 60s. It is a bright and very clean diner, and although there are no menus, just ask and you will find a good offering available. I had perfectly cooked eggs...More
