3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have had breakfast several times over the past several years--mainly at the old location and twice at the new place. Unfortunately, something has gone wrong. In the past, the food was great. Friends warned us that it has gone downhill, but we wanted to try it again. We were disappointed. The wait was long, though it was past the... More

This place really looked promising but it failed to deliver. The flips (pancakes) were rather bland; even toppings/stuffing did not help at all. The Cinnamon Raisin French toast should have been flavorful but was tasteless, and worse, mushy in spots. The orange juice was fresh squeezed, we think, and was the best part of our meal.

We have had breakfast at JAMSS many times and have loved it. Today we went for lunch and were amazed at just how awful it was. First, we were the only two people in the place and it took 25 minutes for our soup and sandwich to be served. The order, as served, was incorrect. I was supposed to have... More

I am not a huge fan of breakfast...Unless it's from J.A.M.S.S. I crave their Italian sausage omelet with home fries and pumpernickel bread. This is my goo breakfast and I don't even need the menu. My boyfriend lives their skillet with jalapeños, sausage, Cheddar, potatoes and topped with a fried egg. We have tried to replicate these breakfasts at home... More

This is the best place we've found for breakfast, good size menu and very different. Have never had anything we didn't like.

Sunday morning at 11:30, full but not jammed. The woman taking our name was so frazzled she was sweating. She was put off by her wait staff and kep verbalizing her discontent with their skills. At one point she said "everybody keeps picking up slips and I cant keep my eye on everything."We waited 5 minutes before she asked out... More

We were afraid that once they moved from their cramped previous location things might change, not so, their quality has remained at the top.

We have been going to Jamms for years. They have been having massive staff changes with wait staff which seems to be the only negative. The wait staff are often stressed out and expressing such verbally. The restaurant is quite consistently packed. The food is good and the cook is very kind and willing to accommodate almost any request.

I have previously been at JAMMS and it has been packed! This Sunday morning it was almost empty. Unfortunately, this time, after waiting ages for our food, it arrived almost cold. Because we had waited so long, we did not complain. Then we heard screaming from the kitchen, and could not wait to leave. Previously I have enjoyed the food... More

the worst part about this place is having to chose from their extensive breakfast menu! We have only gone for breakfast. If you are there during rush times, you may have to wait, but it's worth the wait. They have an excellent and creative array of omelets and Benedicts. My partner especially likes the fresh asparagus with bacon & cheese... More
