Service was abismal, the whole cafe didn't look super clean considering it had just had a 'make over'. My husband ordered a breakfast, the hash browns didn't even looked cooked, I had 'homemade soup of the day' - which was supposed to be beef/vegetable, dishwater...More

Love the new and improved Bluejay! The restaurant looks like a whole new diner, the new owner is very friendly, and the kitchen staff is really good at what they do.

Ripped seats, dirty tables, the Reuben was lacking meat terribly. They used margarine on the toast, not butter. One waitress was so rude to a customer at the next table, telling them "You'll get what you're given" and " You talk too much" I could...More

I'm not sure I'd call this place a cafe. It's more like a diner that only serves breakfast and lunch. Here is where you go when you have the need for greasy food at a good price! The menu is very large with lots of...More

Was a great family restaurant but has become pricey and I think their prices should have stayed the same but the portions reduced. Not very accommodating for me and I have been their breakfast customer during the week for years now.
