“Fabulous Breakfast!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Found this charming breakfast/lunch place near our hotel. Rustic, with great outside patio dining. The omelettes were large and tasty, the service attentive. Would enjoy a brunch there again.

“Best Breakfreast”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

we stopped in Alpine after leaving San Diego on our way back to Phoenix. We longed for a hearty breakfast before our trip and found it at Janet's Montana Cafe in Alpine, CA. The ambiance was just what I expected in a town called Alpine, a rustic, cabin feel setting with fireplace and antler chandeliers. The omelet with cheese and avocado was excellent and the fruit very fresh and tasty. The wait staff was friendly and efficient.This will be our favorite stop on the way home from now on. ( there is also outdoor dining for later in the day with warmer temp)

“Good American food - nice atmosphere”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We wondered what we would find in remote Alpine CA but Janet's turned out to be a little gem. The menu is standard fare but food is very well cooked and presented. We ordered burgers and these were excellent and cooked just as we wanted them with thick fries that really tasted of potato, and delicious pickles. The decor is attractive in real country style and the staff are very friendly and offer prompt service. Other customers seemed to be local regulars so I guess the place has a good reputation. Prices seemed very reasonable.

We have been here twice, for breakfast & lunch. This place is absolutely amazing and a word of caution..go hungry! The portions are huge. Janet's is our new favorite place!

“OK, not great”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Breakfast was standard fare and over-priced. Bakery looked good but didn't try any items. Would hold out for IHOP in El Cajon.
