Jim's on Main is a cozy, recently-renovated little diner right on Main Street at the edge of downtown Rochester. A family-run business with good food, fast and friendly service. Comfortable, relaxing atmosphere that's very welcoming to the locals and regulars and also out of towners!

Stopped in for breakfast on Sunday morning. It's a busy spot but hit a turnover moment and we were promptly seated at the counter. Tastey plates of Eggs Benedict and Scrambled Eggs with bottomless coffee were quickly served up. A pleasant experience worth checking out.
