We visited Jelly Cafe with our son and two small grandchildren. It was a busy Saturday lunchtime. Service was quick and the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. The kids meals were brought out first, which is always appreciated. Big servings and very tasty. Only downside is that the tables are very crowded together to accommodate as many people as possible I assume. Hard to hear conversation.

Jelly Cafe is located in an off-street mall with plenty of parking. Not as large as some breakfast restaurants, we found the service slightly lacking. This was not because of the waitress, however. For some reason, we came on a morning when there was only one waitress and she was working very, very hard and doing as best as she could. There was at least one manager helping, but the service did get behind. That being said, the food was good and there were some different menu items. Five different benedicts to choose from. We tried the hash bennie and the pot roast bennie. Both were very good and the portions were large. We also had the baked goat cheese salad which was way better than expected. I have to agree with one review that mentioned the beignets in cinnamon sugar with jelly. How about beignets with powdered sugar, and see which one gets ordered more? It is a quality local restaurant and we will be back.

First off, I actually preferred the pectin-less compote they provided to jelly. It, and the amazing fried potatoes, were the highlights. The rest alternated between just okay (pancakes) to not so good (beignets buried in granulated cinnamon sugar, huge fluffy cheese omelette with almost no cheese, prices). Go to Walker Brothers.

Great new place. We tried it today with our kids. Staff is very friendly. Ample selection and a good value for the quantity. We had the Mickey Mouse Pancake, Spanish Omelet and a Fajita Omelete. All excellent!! We will be back.

Just a great change from the ordinary chain-type breakfast restaurants. This place is bright, cheerful and classy looking and the food exceeded our expectations. I had the peach cobbler pancakes which was one of their specials of the day and it was wonderful. A layer of peaches between the pancakes as well as on top and I am not talking pie filling peaches here, I am talking peaches. My husband had the cinnamon roll French toast and said it was also excellent. Service was spot on and since we were there about 8:30 on a Monday the place was only about half full. Portions are large and prices extremely reasonable. Hardest decision was what to choose from the menu. 10% senior discount before 9:00 on weekdays. Total check about $20 for our two breakfasts and coffee. We plan to return very soon.
