Best waffles I have ever eaten! They come with fresh fruit and real maple syrup. Yum! Our server Wendy was fabulous!

I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast and coffee here, but the service was a bit hit or miss. For example, the waitress literally poured my initial coffee while engaging with a neighboring table, never making eye contact, and not till several minutes later coming back to take our breakfast order - odd! But perhaps to be expected in very trendy tourist... More

Amazing, Amazing breakfast. By far the best we had during our trip. the staff was friendly and courteous. We ate there every morning. It was recommended by the owner of the Inca Inn.

We went there for breakfast again. Their prices tend to be a little on the high side, but the food is good and service is friendly.

If you love bacon (and honestly, who doesn't?) you need to try it at the Jailhouse Cafe. Great breakfasts!

Most of the time when I order fruit with breakfast anywhere we go it consists of mostly melons, honeydew and cantaloupe, but not Jailhouse Cafe! There was strawberries, bananas, and large blueberries! The swedish crepes were delicious and so were the eggs and potatoes. Great place for breakfast. We sat outside in the "tent" enclosure, there were heat lamps and... More

We thought breakfast here was good, but not exceptional. We ate outside in a building/tent where the heaters kept it very warm. I had pancakes and eggs and they were good. My husband had the whole grain waffle, bacon, and an egg. Again, he thought his was good. Our service was very good.

We stopped here for an daly breakfast (they open 7am-12noon). They looked like they were expecting a bunch of people but when we got there there were only a few of us. The food was fantastic, service quick, efficient and friendly. I'm somewhat of a traditionalist when it comes to breakfast but they did my 2 eggs, bacon and hash... More

I went here for breakfast and had the Southwestern Eggs Chorizo with fried potatoes. Oh my goodness. It was so good! I would be perfectly content having this for breakfast every day. I'm interested in trying their other options. The coffee was just as good and the service is even better. I would highly recommend and look forward to going... More
