We were in town for a hockey tournament and called just after an early morning game on a Saturday to see if Jakes could accommodate our group. The staff was more than happy to help and got our entire group of 25 in and seated within about 15 minutes. The service was good and the food was great and very... More

We found this restaurant close to the hotel we stayed in. There were 7 of us but got seated right away. The food was excellent and affordable. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive although it was busy. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Marlborough, MA.

Arrived in town early for a business meeting & tried Jakes for breakfast when I passed by on Main. Glad I did! A true local family joint & popular but plenty of counter stools for the travelers like me. Highly recommend the counter so you can watch the magic happen: fresh thick french toast by the dozen, corn beef hash... More

And the sign (S) say: Additions welcome, Substitutions are not! In God we trust, customers pay cash! (No credit or debit allowed) Egg whites $0.50 EACH EGG. I asked for Poached Medium, got RUNNY. Waitresses carrying on loud conversations about other customers to other customers. Waitresses swearing. Friendly enough, but swearing. Parking lot is about 4-5 cars big with no... More

Nothing pretentious which is great. Just good service, good portions and good food for a fair price. I hat hot turkey sandwich. My son had eggs and bacon. Would definitely go back.

A very convenient downtown Marlborough location, a friendly staff and a very reasonable good and fast service breakfast. Inside the restaurant is screams of times gone by. Tight table spacing needed for volume driven business. The wood panelling everywhere displays times long ago. If you are ok with the ambiance then the breakfast should satisfy.

I've lived in Marlborough my entire life (22 years) Jakes has always been our family's go to breakfast spot within the city. However, after not going for roughly 4 years while away at college there has been a big difference in the quality of the food. I've been 5 times since graduating in May 2015 and every time my order... More

This is a very good breakfast place, and people know it, so you may need to wait a few minutes on weekends. It's hard to get real homemade corned beef hash. It's delicious here.

Good food and plenty of it! Try the Jakes benedict with homemade hash, delicious and you have to eat for the rest of the day! Spinach tomato and feta omelette is also a favorite. Staff is very friendly. The place itself could use an upgrade but I suppose that is part of the charm

We lived in the Marlborough area for about 10 years and often ate our weekend breakfast at Jake's. Now that we are retired and live down in the south, we love to visit Jake's! In fact we've tried to go 3 previous times but then remember it is closed on Mondays - so finally on this trip we planned it... More
