Fast, convenient breakfast in downtown Hamilton. You order and pay at the counter, then they deliver it to your table. The tradition bacon and eggs breakfast with coffee is a value leader. It's a very popular spot for Hamilton's Finest, with the main police station only a block away.

Found this place over the weekend while in town. Happened to walk past it one evening and thought it would be a good place for breakfast next day. Solid menu, large dining room, and inexpensive. Full breakfast for $8, incl. great coffee. Enjoyed the paintings/photos on the wall for sale from local artists. Nice touch.

My wife and I and some friends have eaten here a couple times. Good breakfast food. We always go for brunch. Not too expensive which is nice. The good won't blow your mind, but is very good. Not a fancy place, just a good place to go when you have a rainy morning off

I brought my mother here for breakfast on a Friday morning at around 10 am. We like to try different restaurants because both of us have our favourite restaurant that the other is not overly fond of. We heard of The Jet Café and decided to try it. We entered the café into a sitting area. No one greeted us... More

Used to work in the area and visit here but haven't been there in years now. We arrived and there was a fair amount of people in the place and it appears to still have a loyal following. My partner went with the Eggs Benedict it was tasty and had a spicy kick that she hadn't expected. Coffee was delicious... More

Just had take out, a burger and side salad. I didn't want fries so asked them to sub a salad and I was told there may be a little up charge. My bill came to $16.93! And my burger was so salty my mouth is shriveled! And salad was iceburg lettuce, aweful! I will never go there again!

Jet Café serves dirt cheap all-day breakfasts and other inexpensive meals. There's nothing fancy here, no artisanal this or gastronomic that, just the basics. You can get a good 2-egg + 2-toast + homefries breakfast and one of half a dozen varieties of self-serve coffees for a little over $5. I don't know of many other joints in town that... More
