We had a terrific breakfast here earlier this week, really fresh and tasty, and pride with which the owner and her staff were serving the locals and travelers alike were obvious. It was heart-warming to see how hard the owner and the rest of the...team were working to keep everyone happy when it seemed as if the entire town descended on JJ's within a 20 minute period that morning...yet, everyone served with a smile, the coffee was fresh and (most importantly) the breakfast egg scrambles were delicious. The BLT with avocado we got to go was also very tasty for lunch.
We really like to patronize family own and operated businesses and JJ's didn't disappoint. You should definitely stop here when passing through or staying in the areaMore
Before heading to Lassen National Park I checked TripAdvisor for places to eat in the area. One of them was JJ’s Cafe. My wife and I arrived in the morning and had to wait about 20 minutes before being seated. I ordered a large breakfast...that consisted of eggs, sausage, hash browns, wheat toast, and orange juice. The breakfast was as good as all the reviews given for this place. Also, the service was excellent and given with a smile. Coffee was brought to my wife a couple of times without asking. Our waitress offered to tell where to park without having to pay to see McArthur-Burney Fall. That was very nice of her but we have no problem supporting our national parks. The breakfast was so good that we came back from the falls and ordered lunch (hamburgers) for our hike to Lassen Peak. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the area looking for a place to eat!More
Stop in and visit Anne and Chuck, owners of JJ’s Cafe in Old Station Ca.
You will be seated indoors or on the patio and presented with a menu of delights.
Try the home smoked pastrami burger. Fantastic. A classic Ruben with melty Swiss and...sauerkraut.Sooo good.
Maybe breakfast with a plate of homemade corn beef hash and eggs. Excellent choice!
It draws a big crowd of locals and Lassen hikers alike,that’s a clue.
You can’t miss this fine establishment. I wholeheartedly recommend.

My wife and I stopped here just before 3pm on a Sunday. There are 8 tables inside that seat two to four and appear to be easily assembled for larger groups. In addition, there are several tables on back patio. Most of the tables were...occupied but there was one 2 seat table by the back door which we took.
We were brought menus and had our drink orders taken. It seemed like they were really busy in the dining area as tables turned quickly. We had to ask that our table be wiped. We checked out the menu and when our drinks arrived, we placed our order.
My wife ordered the mushroom swiss burger and I chose the pastrami sandwich. We both ordered fries as our side.
There are not many places to get something to eat near the intersection of 89 and 44 and these are both common routes to Nevada and rural Lassen county, CA. We drive through here several times a year and always comment that we need to stop and check out the area. If JJ's keeps doing it right, they will have something pretty amazing. Based on the experience today, maybe they already have.
There was a steady stream of people in and out while we were there. Our meals arrived in a timely fashion and looked delicious.
We both really enjoyed our meals and noted this is a good stop for future trips.More
This is your basic cafe in the woods. I ordered the Sausage Benedict ($14). I don't know what I was thinking. Three eggs, two biscuits, and sausage topped with gravy. Oh and hash browns. I had to do some triage because I couldn't come close...to eating it all. Very tasty. Ate at 7:15 am. Didn't eat dinner until after 6:30 because I was full all day long. My buddy had the sausage scramble and he was more than satisfied too.
Our server has very polite and asked without being pushy if we needed coffee refills. It is very clean too. This is a gem on the east side of Lassen Peak on CA hi-way 44.More
