Arnest Seafood is a very quaint little cafe. Don't be fooled by the name, this is more than just a seafood place. We stopped by two mornings in a row for breakfast, which was wonderful each time. Everybody was incredibly friendly, the coffee was frequently topped off, and the food was delicious. What more do you need? Well, I guess you do need to try the Jacks, they are very good.

The atmosphere and vibe is much the same despite the ownership and name change. The menu appears identical to JJs, to include the Jacks. According to their menu, "a 'jack' is a fried light Italian bread known as a Zepolli." One to two of their breakfast items contain seafood, as they have a seafood spin on Eggs Benedict called Eggs Chesapeake. I enjoyed their Crab Quiche this past weekend, listed as one of their specials. They also still have a large assortment of coffee choices, though I thought their house coffee was below average.

Hi, This cafe is in an old, smallish house which gives it some country atmosphere. The breakfast menu has many choices. My husband was happy with his vegetarian omelet. The yellow grits were good and the breakfast potatoes were wonderful. They were flavorful and not greasy at all. Good service. They seem to be running a successful cafe. I hope they are able to renovate the restroom. It's a large room and they only have one restroom so customers had to wait their turn. It looks like they could divide the space and have room for 2. Minor point.

Some time near the first of December 2012, the restaurant changed name to" Arnest Seafood. and Cafe"
My wife and I stop by for a luncheon sandwich and was very pleased with the service and quality of the food. We had a Turkey Rueben with two side dishes of sweet potatoe fries and Onion rings ( we shared because the portions were big) Other sadwiches items included oysters, wraps, soups and many more specials. Dinners are also served. Are server was very nice college / high school girl and attentive.
Definitely worth the the costs of lunch and we will return.
