....And never disappointed 😀 I can't believe some people didn't like it. I get the bacon and cheese omelet and it is to die for. Staff has always been super nice and we have never waited long. I don't think they are made for large parties but we aren't Mormon so only 3 kids 😍

Jailhouse has a great spot in town. Shaded outdoor seating, great menu and great coffee. Best omelette in town, and best pancakes too.

I tried it for the novelty but was pleasantly surprised. The coffee was incredibly good, and the sweet potato pancakes made for a great start to a day of hiking in Arches. The service was attentive, and the price was very reasonable for the portion size and good quality.

I've eaten here on two different trips to Moab (August 1014 and October 2015). The first time, I had a great meal. The eggs were terrific and the BACON... hard to describe (they call it Soul Bacon on the menu). I visited there again this past October. And while the service and eggs were great, I was less impressed with... More

Ate breakfast here our last day in Utah. Ginger pancakes were delicious. We sat inside, but they also have an outside patio.

This place is extremely popular and it's easy to see why. The food and service are fantastic. We sat in the enclosed, heated patio and watched the trucks, mountain bikes, ATV's, cars, and strollers walk down the main drag of town. Every breakfast item was delicious- omelet, pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, coffee and even the toast!! Definitely THE breakfast destination... More

They specialize in breakfast! Where we sat, we could still just see the comings and going of Moab and have nice tasty breakfast. Friendly service! Awesome!

The only think keeping this from being an excellent rating was something that we noticed at several restaurants in Moab: the service was efficient, but not overly warm or friendly. The food was excellent though.

Ate here again recently after remembering the same place from four years ago. It hasn't changed....breakfast is always good! The bacon is wonderful and the pancakes are tasty and filling. We waited about 20 minutes outside on the deck on a chilly October morning, but the patio heaters helped. Ate in one of the outside patios with window tarps down... More

We have eaten here several times on our visits to moab and I have yet to be disappointed. I typically get the pesto omelet. The eggs are always cooked perfect, soft and delicate. Never any color.
