No particular atmosphere, but always friendly and efficient, always good food and attentive service. A lot of business gets done here, and a lot of friendships are supported by breakfast at Jines.

Jine's is an old standard in the corner of Park Avenue and Berkeley always busy, inside or outside. It's been renovated three or four times in the last few years but it remained under the same family ownership. There are more booths and the decor displays of framed pictures taken by local photographers but the main attraction remains the quality of their food anf their quick and attentive service. It is very rare not to see a line waiting for breakfast or lunch but patience is always rewarded,, especially for brunch on Sunday.
Many of the locals take our visitors from abroad to Jine's to experience the real American breakfast and the funny thing is that the owners are of Greek descent!
I've been going there for 26 years and hope for many more!

The food is excellent, the price is reasonable and the location can't be beat. Great place for brunch on the weekend.

We discovered a Jines giftcard that had some funds left on it, so we ventured here for lunch. Right away I noticed that they have shoehorned way too many tables into a small and crowded space. We were seated a a two-top in an area that I'm sure was a walkway last time we were here. It felt like we were on top of the parties on either side. My turkey sandwich had about 2 oz. of meat and 4 oz. of lettuce, and now the greedy owners charge an extra 50 cents for a tomato slice! My wife said her tuna sandwich was skimpy as well. Such is the sad state of the restaurant business on competitive Park Avenue.

My husband and I were at Jines on Saturday morning for breakfast.
Absolutely enjoyed Banana French toast and Country French toast with home fries. Really good food for the price. I highly recommend it.
