This is where I go every year for breakfast and it's always great. The place is small with a counter a row of tables for two along the wall plus two larger tables in the back. If you need to wait, it's worth it. Classic menu. Good service.

Jesse's Chuck Wagon is small. You have to know where it is. It is THE place on the island for locals - and visitors - to eat breakfast. It's an old fashioned counter, with a few tables, short order cook restaurant. You get what you expect, but it is well done. Only open for breakfast and lunch.

We were there at lunch rush place is very small. Had to wit in line at the door probably around 15 minutes for seating to open up. There was 4 of us and we had to grab the first open spots, fortunately we got to sit close, 2 at the bar and 2 at the table behind them. We all... More

Grabbed breakfast sandwiches to go on way to ferry. Pros: waitress said they could get the sandwiches done in just a few minutes & she was right. Cons: pretty greasy & like other places here, they use that processed American cheese rather than good cheese. Everything would be ssoooo much better if they just did that!

This family-owned restaurant serves up the best breakfast, especially the bacon burritos! As island residents, it's where our summer guests always want to visit at least when they are in town.

This was recommended by a carriage driver. It's a diner/dive that is open a few hours for breakfast then closes down. It opens again at noon for the lunch crowd and that's what we experienced. We all lined up on the street at 11:45 waiting for the doors to unlock. Once they did you just file in....there are tables against... More

This place is small and very busy but the service is extremely fast and the food was great! We got there right as they opened for lunch and there was a line when we left.

This place is small in size but mighty in food and service! The size of it makes you feel like you are right there in the kitchen watching the owner build your hamburger to order while having a great conversation! That is the charm of this place it has a homey feel and it is perfect after a long hike... More

Very small restaurant , with a crowded feel to it, but breakfast was excellent and reasonably priced. Be ready to wait until you're able to be seated!

This is a very busy, very small place, but you can also go up to the counter and ask for food to go. Staff was super friendly and accommodating and so relaxed for how busy it was. I tried their cherry chicken salad on whole wheat and hubby tried their most basic grilled cheese. Both were great. They're supposed to... More
