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. On a quiet Tuesday early afternoon, the place was busy, the service friendly and the food surperior. We had sandwiches with killer, fresh fries. Breakfast... More

The last two times we've come to Porterville to visit family, we have met family here for breakfast and I just have to give this place a 2-thumbs up! The whole restaurant is spotlessly clean and the staff are both friendly & efficient. It's been pretty busy both visit, but room was made for our large family group in the... More

I cannot possibly in words convey how awesome the staff here is. We were in town for a funeral and met friends here for breakfast and from the moment we walked in we were welcomed by a very conscientious staff. I wish I had gotten the name of our waitress so I could commend her here. She paid very close... More

We always enjoy dining at Jenny Lynn's! It's inevitable that we will run into friends or family while we are there. The meals have that "down home" style that is comfortable and predictable. The service is usually prompt and the people are friendly. My husband usually orders the meatloaf or a burger, while I prefer a salad or a sandwich.... More
