Cafe located downtown Baraboo. Very quaint atmosphere and great food. Serve breakfast and lunch only as closed during dinner.

I have been going to Jen's for breakfast off and on for years. I love her biscuits and gravy combo platter. Always really good! Service speed depends on what is going on. Most dishes are from scratch, not a can, so things can take a little longer.

Had a opportunity to have breakfast here recently. Unbelievable food & good service. Place was packed with the after church crowd I'm guessing because it was 11:00 am on a Sunday morning. Need to get back for lunch one of these days soon!

some of the best buttermilk pancakes I have ever had. This IS our breakfast place anytime we are near the dells. Our waitress was really friendly, I wish I could remember her name to give her proper thanks. She was there Monday morning July 4th. We were the couple with the thermos of hot water. Thanks again!!!

Want a big breakfast, simple lunch or some great soup...? This is the place. Food is solid and they will bring it out fast. You can not beat the prices.

I have such a hard time deciding what to order -- my drool overcomes me! Best buttermilk pancakes; outstanding chef salad; soups & sandwiches galore (with seasonal treats)! I love their Eggs Benedict & hash browns... YUM !!! The wait staff are all so personable & fun.

We stopped here for breakfast and I have to say the food was good. I had a mushroom and cheese omelet. The omelet was very good, had lots of cheese, and was cooked about as perfect as an omelet could be. It came with hashbrown's that had lots of flavor. The service was quick and fast. She had some trouble... More

We were visiting Baraboo and had stopped at Von Klaus for wine tasting and asked Ken where he would recommend eating lunch. He told us we should try Jen's and are we glad we did! This restaurant has been around since the 30's. My husband ordered the French dip and I had the harvest turkey burger. Both were excellent. We... More
