If you're a morning/lunch person and on the island, you have to visit Jakes for some good food. Great omelets, homefries, and frenchtoast, to name a few. Service great and atmosphere light

Two couples went for a late breakfast and absolutely loved it. Breezy, open air and island feel. You do have to climb some stairs to get there, but it was worth it! I had the California omelet and it was very good. Others had the...More
