Check out J C's for breakfast, fresh food served by caring owners and staff. Nice quiet location with great patio setting. Try the breakfast burrito or greek egg scramble our favorites. Reasonably priced for the quality and freshness. A locals favorite.

A friend served "her" gazpacho at a dinner party, and we all raved and claimed it to be the best ever. Guessing in had finely chopped zuchini, cucumber, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, onion, garlic maybe, cilantro, maybe hotsauce, and other "secret" ingredients. After a little coaxing, she admitted she bought it "to take out" at J C's Patio. Of course, the name was not quite correct, and it took several tries to finally find J C's Patio, on El Paseo in the same block as Chico's.
So we had a dinner party, and decided to do the trick ourselves. Yes! Yes! It worked - finely chopped, and ultimately delicious - cool on a hot summer's night. Best Gazpacho in the desert - maybe even the world!
Now we want to go and eat at the cafe ourselves - not just order "take out".

Reasonably priced breakfast place with a good varied menu. The servings are generous and you have your choice of potatoes, fruit or tomatoes with your entree.
Service is attentive. Will definitely return. They open early which is great if you have anywhere to get to.

We had lunch at J C's this week and although the location sounded attractive, the patio is in the shade stuck between buildings just off El Paseo, the oiled tablecloths might have been a warning. Timewarp food, salad greens without dressing with bland homemade dressings offered in plastic bottles on the table and fairly uninteresting ingredients but very nice service were on offer.Not a memorable meal just an OK pitstop.
