This is a friendly hole-in-the-wall that has terrific breakfasts all day long. They also make specials, so you need to ask the waiter what is good today. They will delight in that question and give you an honest answer. Highly recommended.

It was ok. Service was great. I liked my breakfast burrito. My husband got the carnitas and egg. Didn't think it was just a pile of carnitas on the plate potatoes and eggs.. But he used my sour cream to garnish it. If there had been some cheese on it and a side of tortillas, it would of been better.... More

This is our third time over two years that we have visited and enjoyed Jason's. Generally those visits were in the mid afternoon of different weekdays. Today, our third visit, was on Tuesday, 20 October, around 10:15AM. Customer activity seemed light, service as usual was friendly, welcoming, and quick, both with greeting, being seated, menu questions were answered accurately and... More

Often go for breakfast. Coffee is good, breakfast menu adequate and they will meet almost any request if they have the ingredients, such as steamed vegetables and rice which some of our members often order for breakfast. very reasonable pricing and servings are large. And they remember your names. Well managed with great staff.

My friend and I came here because she was craving an American diner. I just had mashed potatoes and gravy for a snack but her coconut pancakes were wonderful. I recommend the lemonade and juice too. Plus, the owners are adorable.

Great friendly service. Large menu- but it's all good, I haven't had everything mind, but it's all been great so far!! Fantastic breakfasts, wonderful sandwiches, the orange juice is fresh squeezed!! They have a better selection of bottled beers than some of the fancy pants restaurants on Santa Cruz downtown Menlo Park. This place is one of my favorites in... More

still the go-to place for breakfast all day, or for a quick lunch. Staff is always welcoming. Large portions. Hubby likes the hamburgers. I'm partial to the standard breakfasts.

My wife and I had breakfast here as we have a son named Jason and the restaurant was close to our hotel. I had a strawberry waffle and my wife had eggs and hashbrowns. The waffle was tasty enough and the strawberries were fresh, but it was the thinnest waffle I have ever seen. My wife's hashbrowns were defrosted it... More

I love restaurants that serve breakfast all day!! Jason's Cafe is a homey, comfortable, clean restaurant to visit. The service is excellent ; the food is good--home style comfort food. Basic American fare is what is on the menu. We ordered the standard breakfast of eggs, link sausage, toast, and a spinach mushroom and cheese omelette , with hash browns... More

My wife and I were visiting Menlo Park for a wedding and in need of lunch before the evening wedding celebration. We spotted Jason’s Café close to our motel. The café does not look like much from the outside, but it was pleasant on the inside. There were about 5 other tables with customers which I thought was a good... More
