We love breakfast and I think Jan's has the best pancake I have ever had. Great mom and pop place and best breakfast in town

Great diner feel with homestyle cooking and very accomodating service. Not huge on atmosphere. You saw a ton of locals which means it's great.

We were in town for a white water rafting adventure and needed to fuel up for a big day. We found Jans. This is obviously the place all the locals go, which is always a good thing. Typical breakfast joint, good service, hot coffee

GREAT FOOD! Buttermilk pancakes are a MEAL to share even though you won't want to...it's hard to eat them all! All breakfasts were plenty of food to have leftovers!

My husband and I went here for breakfast- they serve it all day. The prices are reasonable and food delicious. The wait staff and owner- Jan- and the locals who frequent the restaurant are all very friendly and welcoming.

This place is old fashioned, hometown, homestyle breakfast, lunch & dinner. Simple, well prepared meals like chicken fried steak, patty melts, omelets, and meatloaf. Friendly service and good prices are topped off with best pies and soups in town.

Went here for Breakfast and was very disappointed. First off we sat and waited 10 min before the waitress came to take our order. I had 2 eggs over medium, link sausage, hash browns and toast. Well my eggs were over easy, the sausage was...More

Not sure if it is hand breaded but it sure is good. I am willing to think so because most of their food is home made.
