“Best Breakfast in Palm Beach County”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Yearning for a fabulous breakfast or lunch in Palm Beach County? Try John G's! It is consistently rated best restaurant for breakfast in Palm Beach County. You will love the selection of entrees which range from delicious french toast selections, traditional bacon and egg platters + ethnic omelets. The food is fresh, tasty and always served with a smile. Get here early especially on the weekend or on holidays as there can be a line. Be prepared to pay with CASH ONLY, as credit cards are not accepted and prepare yourself for a fab dining experience. An added plus is that John G's is located in a lovely shopping plaza with fabulous shops and is close to the beach.

“Nothing new to add..IT IS EVERYONE'S FAVORITE”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

It is still number 1 after 100+ excellent votes ...it has to be telling you something. John G's only serves breakfast and lunch and there is no need to go any further...it is perfect the way it is. I would like to say THANK YOU to the Giragos family for giving us, his customers, this wonderful dinning experience. IT IS TRULY A GIFT. The landmark family-run restaurant has served breakfast and lunch seven days a week in its original location at the Lake Worth Casino for 37 years, then in 2011 it moved to Manalapan its current location. Everyday is PERFECTION, but during season on Sundays they have coffee outside for you to drink while you wait on line (YES, there is a line), a short time later a waitress comes out and offers chocolate dipped pieces of strawberry and pineapple, to entice you a bit further. A jewel of a restaurant that is not to be missed.

“Florida favorite!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Followed them from their former location and glad to see that nothing has changed in terms of food quality and service! Dining area is larger but still the wait is long for breakfast, but sooo worth it! I wish I had some French toast right now! Best breakfast ever! Remember it's still a cash only restaurant and always has been.

“The best breakfast & lunch in the area”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

I have been coming here for years and this place is without a doubt the best place for breakfast and lunch.
Arrive early for breakfast and avoid the lines, but it's worth the wait.
