Best food all week! Their takeout is fantastic. Hot, fresh, and delicious. Can’t wait to order from them again

Tried out this breakfast joint. There’s a lot of very sweet stuff on the menu, such as cinnamon roll pancakes and lots of French toast and pancakes with whipped cream and honey or syrup on them. Those do not appeal at all to me. But...there were also lots of interesting savory choices. My friend went very basic, just sunny side up eggs and potatoes, while I did a spinach & mushroom omelette with English muffin. They were both good, and the coffee was hot and refilled often. This is out of our normal area, about 20 minutes away. Not sure we’d make the drive over again as while it was good, not necessarily better than other closer places. But if you’re in the area, I would recommend this place as the service was also very good.More

We’ve ordered takeout several times and recently sat down for a nice Breakfast, I had Bluebery Pancakes and my wife had Lemon Swirl Pancakes, both were fantastic and the service was great! Not a lot of staff so on the takeout we had to wait...for a cashier a few times but worth the wait!More

Have loved their omelets on past visits. This time, I ordered a turkey sandwich with Brie and fig jam. Very creative and tasty - even with my sticky hands after finishing. My friend ordered a burger which hadn’t usually great in a diner snd she...was very pleased. Great place for breakfast and lunch.More

Good choice for a nice breakfast to start your day. Hard to beat the all American with eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. Everything was cooked to order and served promptly. Good, hot coffee served with a smile. EmJ’s does breakfast right. Reasonably priced. Located in...a strip mall, parking is easy.More

With so many competitors in the area its hard to stand out. EmJ's does a nice job of keeping the menu simple but interesting and the service is always on point.

They have delicious homemade soups and they also sell them in containers to go! I also love their tuna and I’m very picky about tuna fish.
