This popular breakfast and lunch spot has a large menu, and the biggest problem is making a decision. Among breakfast offerings are eggs, pancakes, waffles, Benedicts and omelettes. For lunch, there are soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs and grilled chicken.
Warm and welcoming — and always busy. There are tables, booths and counter seating in this comfortable, friendly cafe.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
I can never resist the huge omelettes served here, but the dilemma is in choosing the ingredients. On this visit I ordered the Spanish version ($8.75) with green peppers, onions, homemade salsa and melted cheese. I chose home fries for my side (other choices are grits, oatmeal or fresh fruit) and wheat toast. Everything was delicious, and I made a serious dent in the large serving. My husband and our friend decided to order lunch, and since it was the weekend, the choices were a little more limited than usual. Both chose sandwiches, egg salad ($7.95) with cole slaw for my husband, chicken salad ($7.95) with fries for our friend. Their sandwiches were stuffed — and so were they, when they finished every bite. No one had room for dessert that day.
REASON TO GO
It’s a Jupiter landmark, and there’s usually a wait for a table because people know they will find good food and service. Remember to take cash, as the restaurant does not accept credit cards. There is an ATM on the premises.
We went about 45 minutes before closing, so we were able to get seated right away. Our meals came quickly, and our server checked back on us to make sure we were happy with our choices and our glasses were full.
It’s a cafe, so expect chatter.
This is definitely a family friendly restaurant, and the kids will find plenty of items they’ll enjoy.
