I have visited the Jay Cafe on a few trips to Needville to visit family. The staff is always friendly and there is a good variety of meal selections.

Highly recommend the chicken fried chicken, chef salad, and chicken salad sandwiches. The side dinner salad leaves something to be desired, only iceberg lettuce and a quarter to a half of a tomato. Also, on this trip the potato soup was good, but not heated throughout.

The desserts are AMAZING! Chocolate pie, coconut cream pie, and peach cobbler... You can't go wrong!

Priced a little high for what you get, but a great place to dine while you're in/going through Needville.

We have been here on many occasions and have never had a problem with the food or the service. The chicken fried chicken is by far the best I have had. The pork chops and meatloaf are also very good. The homemade pies are exceptional. This is a bit of a drive for us, but we make it gladly.

Twelve of us ate Saturday at 5:30. Not very busy. The waitress we had was too busy with the boy behind the counter to take care of us. Some of us ask for sweet tea, got unsweet. My wife ask for a salad dry and everybody else got their salad but her. We had eaten their before and ask where our rolls were and said they would be there in 5 minutes. We got our rolls when we were finished with dinner.

We have been patrons of this awesome cafe since they opened. Family owned and operated and fantastic service. Food is fresh, home made and have been here morning, noon and night. Good breakfast buffet. Wonderful burgers (try the jalapeño Jay on jalapeño sourdough bun), chicken fried steak and chicken, pork chops..something for everyone. Fresh salad greens and veggies. Did I mention the PIES. OMG!!'!!!!!!!!!!! Coconut cream is our favorite! This is definitely worth the drive from SW Houston and the Sugar Land area.
