Loved eating breakfast here. We would usually get the same server, I don't remember her name but she has long blonde hair and was super nice. She made the better bloody mary, sorry guys! Anyway, I usually just got the regular because it was a good mixture of things. I know it's hard to screw up breakfast, but this is... More

You cannot go wrong here. Tasty brunches and nice service. The only drawback on a working day is the traffic noice.

Not the fanciest place, and the view is good - a partially obstructed view of the water if you sit along the bench seating along the waterside. However.........the potato pancakes with a hint of onion served with sour cream and apple sauce were just fabulous. And the side of homemade corned beef hash (made with chunks of real corned beef)...

Basic breakfast. Good service. Nothing worth mentioning specifically. Easy to get to in town. I'd go there again in a pinch.

This food is amazing! Everything we ate was homemade with quality ingredients! Guava jelly, pancakes with strawberries in the batter, corned beef hash with chunks of beef, breakfast burrito with homemade pico!!!! Love this place! Worth every penny, and the staff is prompt and friendly.

We went to breakfast today at Jake's. We had the home made corned beef hash and eggs. It was excellent. Great homemade jams, too. Nice view from the window seats. The person next to me had the pancakes and they looked like they were almost too much to eat.

My husband and I had breakfast here as we waited for our rental car. It was not anything special, hard chairs, fair service, no view with pretty good food. Just OK. Fair price for the island.

We were tired of eating at the condo so we decide to try Jakes for Breakfast and we're glad we did. Located upstairs in a great open-air space, they serve a variety of diner-style options for breakfast including potato pancakes (like hash browns) waffles, egg sandwiches, pancakes and more. We arrived around 8:45 and hit it just right because by... More
