We went for breakfast on a Saturday & had no wait at 9 a.m. Server was friendly & helpful. Delicious beignets, even better than those in New Orleans! The Napoleon & Eggs Benedict were both good. Price was reasonable. As we walked out saw a blackboard which offered other specials of the day-had I seen this earllier would have ordered... More

Had the Napoleon, a puff pastry filled with andouille sausage and egg accompanied by hash browns that had cheese and diced tomatoes as my main brunch dish and got an order of bingets and a coffee. I can't say enough about the food. The main course was fantastic- fresh pastry, perfectly crispy hash browns and a huge portion for under... More

Our must-go place for breakfast. All the food is amazing, but I always have the Napoleon. Puff pastry , scrambled eggs, andouille, and hollandaise. What's not to love? The coffee is delicious. Even the hash browns are above average. This is a bit out of the way, but if you're coming from the beach, on the way to the Naval... More

Like the title says, they have the best in town. The bread is perfect, the au jus is great. I drive a half hour at least twice a month to get one of these wonderful sandwiches

This is a mom and pop restaurant with great home cooking. My friends told me about it and I joined them on Thursday 5/26. I had a chef salad with a plate of fries and beignets for dessert. OMG. The beignets were very good along with the salad. My friend had fried mullet with fries. The service was excellent also.... More

This place is a little out of the way and nothing special to look at. The service is a little slow, but they stay very busy. The food however, is excellent.

When we are going out to breakfast we almost always end up a CJ's. The food is delicious and the wait staff is always friendly. Make sure to order some beignets!

I only gave it a single star because one of the waitresses was very friendly with us. An hour after we had been seated, the kitchen sent out another table's order, one that had been seated at least twenty minutes after us. When I asked how on earth that can even happen, the server had the cook talk to me,... More

Two friends and I ate a late breakfast/brunch here. The food was delicious, and the service great. I enjoyed watching the chef interact with customers, as he was working at the grill.
