“Best breakfast in town -- literally”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Can't recall how many times - but they've been voted best breakfast in town multiple times by the community.

Fantastic breakfast -- lunch is great too! Parking lot is packed every day -- but if you ever have to wait for a table -- it's totally worth it!

Another local gem -- skip the chains, keep it local! You can thank me later! :)

“Remind us of our old hangout back home”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We loved it. The food was great, the bacon thick and not overcooked. The coffee yummy. The french toast was delicious.

“Value! Good, Simple Menu with Great Prices”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

A very typical, popular local place with friendly service. In the nicest way, this is one of those Holes-in-the-Wall, Greasy-Spoons (without the grease) kinda cafes that no matter how unfancy, you know you will go back. Fast, friendly service with a smile, and the best prices in the area. Try it !

“Breakfast, Lunch with hometown atmosphere”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Jan's offers great lunch and breakfast schedules, you would think you were in moms kitchen. No better place for comfort food. Last lunch special baked chicken, carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy with homemade bread. Yum.

“Pancakes Anyone?”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you like pancakes, you'll love Jan's! They are the size of a full dinner plate! Everything else was made to order just as we asked.

This is a classic restaurant. No frills.

Fast service, good food.
