We had breakfast here because we heard this was the best spot in town. It did not dissapoint! This place is a great place to hang out, the breakfast portions are huge, the salsa for the ommelete had a kind of homemade taste, I could go back just to only have that again!

There food is good and reasonable prices. What I like is that it is a family run business. The owner are always there. They are famous for their Italian soda.

Jenny Lynn's is a nice, quiet, hometown cafe. Service is always good and quick. This is my go to weekly for a great chef or cobb salad. They also have solid sandwiches on the menu. They are known to have a fantastic breakfast but I've never been there early enough to try it (although you can get breakfast any time).... More

In my experience, usually lunch with friends on a Saturday, this place is pretty good. I like the atmosphere I guess. Tables instead of booths which is nice when our group could be 4 or 8 or so. Tables can always be pushed together. Service is fairly good, no problems that a reasonable person can't overcome. Breakfast is above average,... More

First stop in a number of years and was surprised that they have transioned from what used to be mostly a coffee and pastry operation to a full service restaurant complete with a wine list.
