Food is always great. Server Michelle is the best! So friendly and helpful. The older lady taking names at the front needs some customer service training however. As if she doesn’t care if you are there or not.

People say to visit Jantz Cafe & Bakery for the pies. I say go for the take and make meals! In a busy season, these are lifesavers and they are delicious! Enjoy the convenience for your family or better yet, give them to a friend!

We arrived after 1:00 PM. The cafe was still very busy, but we were seated right away. We had a wonderful server who helped with our selections. The food,as always,was fresh and delicious. Jantz is a very reliable choice for lunch.

Had lunch here today; unfamiliar with Merced, but TripAdvisor ranks it No. 1 in the city. The tuna melt was delicious, though my request for "light on the cheese" was ignored. Never mind: I took off one piece of bread and one piece of cheese...More
