I went to breakfast just to see if Jam was all it was cracked up to be. What I discovered was a creative breakfast menu, executed well, delivered quickly with a smile & my coffee cup never ran dry. I had something called fried oatmeal....More

Someone recommended this place to us and thank goodness they did! This was absolutely a home run. Great service and fabulous food! We had the Charlie Bowl, which I wasn't sure about because of the corn and peas, but it was a smorgasbord of flavor....More

Checked out Jam for the first time yesterday, a Saturday morning so a line-up had formed outside when we arrived at 9:30. I am not the most patient of souls so the 50 minute wait to get a table was excruciating. The inside has a...More

Jam offers American-diner style food; copious, totally over the top in terms of caloric intake and home-style presentation. Coffee was watery and service was on the slow-side. We all couldn’t finish our dishes and decided, in the end, while Jam was an experience, it was...More
