Driving by it doesn't look like much. You can't tell a book by its cover. Clean, friendly with offers of your basic breakfast foods. Simple foods..nothing frilly. Eggs, pancakes and regular home cooked fare. Potatoes could use some seasoning but a good breakfast for the money.

My sister and I decided to stop here for breakfast on our way home from AC because we had read mostly great reviews. We weren't disappointed! From the outside the place doesn't look like much at all, but we all know those places usually have the best food! We were quite shocked to walk in and see how spacious and... More

Jo Jo's is by far ,my favorite breakfast and lunch stop in the area. There is a cool atmosphere of bonhomie among the regulars and everyone is made to feel welcome. The menu is real food ,made real well. One of the best homemade cheeseburgers I've ever had. Hand formed burger,not over packed,done perfectly,on a great roll. Homemade soups everyday,shrimp...

Walked down from the Villas near the Stockton Seaview. It's a throw back breakfast place that could be out of the 1950's. The breakfast omelets we had were great and the service was excellent. Mary Ann was a wonderful server - and got our order just right. This happens rarely these days. We love these local places especially when the... More

Looked like a hole in the wall but those are usually some of the best places. Service was good and everything we ordered was delicious. Historic building that was a bar and now a diner type atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

I have had several breakfasts here, and never been disappointed. Not to new but kind has its own appeal. I remember years ago, used to be a bar. Food was hot tastey and service was prompt if a little stiff... I would recommend you try their breakfasts. I have not eaten lunch so can't comment it that.. Prices probably in... More

I was staying at the nearby gold resort for a tournament and didn't feel like dishing out $36 for breakfast for my son and I. This is especially since I know my son would eat only one waffle and be full. Found this great little gem and had a great omelet. Was it the best omelet I ever had? No!... More

The breakfast here was ok- the pricing is the same as Shea's up the street which is so much better - the omelet here was flat-nice service
