Although we arrived at a busy breakfast time and were seated quickly, the food took for ever to come for our table of 6. One expects to wait but it was at least 40 mins. and no one checked with us nor offered to get out the kids food first or bring coffee refills in the meantime. When the food... More

This was my fifth time to the restaurant and I was looking forward to a burger and fries for lunch. Alas it was not to be. The hostess seated me and I watched as the servers cruised by attending to everyone around me and working very hard to avert their eyes, refusing to make eye contact. I gave up after... More

Saturday morning is when the world goes out for breakfast, but we didn't think this small eatery tucked into a corner of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport would be busy. Swamped. The service, however, was up to the challenge. Our party of six was seated with minimum delay, water and coffee distributed quickly. Tempting breakfast choices fill the menu. Our server,... More

Combining my passion for airplanes i didn't miss the chance to be in this "small" executive cafe inside the airport. Enjoying the good quality of food, large portions and fair prices, it was a different experience. Very nice service, and a welcome smile made me want to repeat a.s.a.p.

As the name of the restaurant suggests, you can literally watch private planes take off and land at the Fort Lauderdale executive airport while you dine. The restaurant is loud and airy inside with an upscale vibe but you don't need to dress up. Better than the novely of the scenery around you is the food, which is surprisingly good.... More

I've been to Jet cafe probably around a dozen times and so has my wife. Never had a bad meal. Portions are great, burgers are fantastic. Nice to watch the planes come in and take off. Occasionally a helicopter comes in or a military craft. Busy around lunch time but that's a good sign. Good rewards program too—just enter your... More

BUT inside was clean, cute, bright with Windows to see the runway and the privately owned planes.. Service Fantastic and food YUMMY! and very reasonably priced!

Always enjoy lunch here. Silver linings salad with their tomato bisque is dylana special. Great salad with fresh chicken breast, walnuts, Gorgonzola pieces and the best tomato bisque. All salads are fresh and their sandwiches and tacos are delicious

I'd heard very good things about this restaurant and I'd tried the place with the same name at Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood Int'l (in the Sheltair Bldg) as I'd worked their for many years. I finally had the opportunity to check it out and was impressed beyond my expectations. The menu, unlike that of the place at FLL, is quite extensive. I'd... More

This is such a treat to have this cafe where we keep our plane. We have had breakfast there twice now and will probably eat there every time we head out. Grits are really good and so are the pancakes! I have seen some lunch items and they look good as well
