We all had eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Wait staff was friendly and personable. The host was hilarious.

The southwestern eggs benedict are terrific; chipotle sauce is fantastic. The waffle, on the other hand, is tasteless, soft, just awful. There are great waffle recipes out there guys! Make an effort. Soul food bacon is great, but asked for crisp and got soft.

On a rainy Sunday, we had a 15 minute wait. Seated inside with Tom as our waiter. Immediately served water and coffee! The food was delicious, speedy coffee refills. Don’t forget to order the bacon!

You can tell how good a restaurant is by the number of people on the sidewalk waiting for a table! Good, hearty breakfast, good coffee. Had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. So worth it!

We tried Jailhouse Cafe based on several great reviews but was not impressed. It was a busy Sunday I will give them that…but service and food was lacking. I had the Southwest Florentine Benedict and it came out looking like someone threw a burnt English...Muffin, spinach, and a poached egg together in a hurry. My husband had the special which was a Chorizo Egg Burrito. Nothing impressive just eggs, chorizo, and cheese. Pico de Gallo was the best part of the dish. Both our side potatoes came out cold. Waiter never came by to see how our meal was. Just brought the bill and moved us along.More

My husband and I had breakfast here on our last day in Moab. I had the Southwestern Benedict and he had the Chorizo scramble. Good coffee, good service and a tasty breakfast. Glad we stopped here.

Jailhouse Cafe is definitely worth a stop at Moab. It's only open for breakfast. It has indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating area is well designed so you don't feel like you are sitting right next to the sidewalk. Food was delicious. Service was...friendly and fast. The breakfast potatoes were probably among the best we've ever had. Great omelets and coffee too!More

I ate here for breakfast two days. I was part of a travel program so I was with a group. I loved the unending coffee. Many menu offerings. Everything I ate was yummy and well prepared and they were very accommodating of special requests.
