“Great food, unique funky vibe”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Lazy Jane's is my favorite breakfast spot on Willy Street. Yes, sometimes there is a long line out the door, but it's worth the wait. If you can get there for lunch, try the avocado grilled cheese sandwich and side-salad with lemon-basil vinaigrette.

“Great food, but noisy and crowded”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

That about sums it up--it can be very crowded. Food is excellent, but difficult to enjoy as you feel rushed to vacate your table. Impossible to read while enjoying a lazy breakfast.

“Good food, but not worth the hype”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We've eaten at Lazy Jane's for breakfast on a number of occasions. On the weekends, it's always crazy busy. They have a nice play area upstairs, but the entire place is pretty cramped.

The food is very good, but not awesome. If you're in the area, it's worth your time for the stop.

“Love this place for breakfast”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The place is a gem. Funky atmosphere. Great food. Laid back. The scones are fantastic. They have some really cool egg dishes. Yeah, you have to bus your dishes, order at the counter. But it is a fun experience. We try to stop here every time we are in Madison.

“Go for the Baked Goodies”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is an order-at-the-counter place, very alternative, so as a Portlander I felt right at home. I had a cherry scone...it was hard to choose because everything looked great! It was unique, delicious, and a good value. The hot breakfast options, though, are not anything special and without table service you could be disappointed if you go expecting a traditional sit-down breakfast experience. Like another reviewer, I also appreciated the parking lot, too!
