Unless you know about this place, you will not find it, until you stumble upon it. So, let me guide you! lol This place is tucked away in an alley, right off of 3rd street but, before E. Broad Street. I'm almost sure this is a "mom and pop" shop and that's what makes this place attractive.
There are clearly both "regulars" and "newbies" that eat here. You can tell when the cooks, servers and owner yells out a familiar name.
Breakfast is served all day....and I think lunch is too. At any rate, I love breakfast, so that's what I wanted. I recall coming to this place some fifteen years ago, and was happy to learn, the recession didn't take this neighborhood staple out. The prices are affordable and can accommodate any budget. Seriously, where can you get a pancake and hashbrowns for under $6, including tax? I ordered a short stack (2 fluffy pancakes) and a side of hashbrowns. My girlfriend ordered corn beef hash, hashbrowns, sausage and coffee-under $7. I enjoyed my food, but, my girlfriend said the corn beef hash, was NOT homemade which was very disappointing.
The staff was pleasant and smiling, which is always a bonus!

Great, simple food. This place is no secret and it gets packed at lunch time. We ended up sitting at the bar right beside the Governor. Hardly anyone payed any attention to him or his aides. The food was everyone's concern and it's delicious and cheap.

the location is neat; it's more or less tucked in an alley and it's been in the same place since the forties. The menu is simple and if you leave without trying their Velvet Ice Cream hand-dipped milkshakes then you have shorted yourself the best 'shake you have ever tried.

This morning we happened into Jack's on a recommendation from the Columbus Hotel. Totally decorated for Halloween....this place can cook eggs (over easy), rock bacon and sausage, crisp potatoes, and offer the best coffee. The staff is super nice, happy, and delightful first thing in the morning. If you're looking for a perfect breakfast this is the place; it's just a great diner in a great city.
