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.
