My wife and I ate breakfast here on a Tuesday in mid-August 2016. We came in around 8:00am and were seated immediately at one of the two open tables at that time. The wait person checked with us about a minute later and we had coffee in another minute and placed our breakfast order a couple of minutes after that.... More

I was SO hoping this would be our new breakfast place. While the food was clearly homemade, the tiny portions (who serves ONE slice of toast) and the wait time (50 minutes for an omelet and a creamed chipped beef plate) just aren't worth it. The lackadaisical attitude of the staff is a clear indicator that these wait times are... More

Once again I visited the famed Jumbars at a friend's request. After 2 other visits that were at best mediocre, I went because she does enjoy it. I was underwhelmed, again. A small, half full restaurant should not take over 30 minutes to produce a salad and a sandwich. Those items should be as described on the menu. Both of... More

They only serve drip coffee (no espresso drinks), and the day we went had not a single juice available, nor any of the flavored iced teas, etc. The service is slow and unpolished. I don't mind a leisurely dinner, but we were trying to eat breakfast with a young child and would not have sat down if we'd realized the... More

I had the spanish omelette, maple sage pork sausage, fresh fruit (instead of potatoes), and a whole-wheat English muffin. The food was fresh and delicious. There are several whole-wheat options on the menu. The English muffin was grilled instead of toasted, which was a nice surprise. They have several jams available that can also be purchased to take home. Outside... More

My friend and I ate lunch here, waited only about 5 minutes for a table. All tables were full and service was great. The combos are a good buy (soup or salad and sandwich). You can also upgrade to a bowl of soup if you are really hungry. I had the curry yam soup - so good! My spinach, farmers... More

Cozy, quaint little spot for a late breakfast, which is smart, appealing to the college crowd. Friendly staff, good food. Breakfast and baked goods were really good.

This is one of our favorite café’s in Bethlehem. The café is very small, but cozy and it has a nice atmosphere. We been here for lunch & breakfast and enjoyed both of our meals. It gets quite busy and they get backed up, so expect to wait before being served. The service is just ok but the food is... More

I won't be going back. I was there in 2013 and was disappointed...but I was in the area again and hungry. It was a weekday at 9 am and not crowded. Waitress was not friendly, seemed like she didn't want to be there. It took 35 minutes to get my omelette and toast...and after 2 cups of coffee I was... More

Small restaurant. Try to avoid THE lunch hour - they are busy because they are good. Small menu but everything is wonderful.
