With that.. they didn't have much to offer that I would like. But what I DID have was really good. They have a lot of... More

The food was amazing! We waited about 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone was very friendly. So many great choices on the menu it was hard to decide. Went with croissant French toast and the protein plate. Loved both!

Best breakfast in all of Jax's. There are several locations and they all are great. Large portions on everything they serve. Breakfast, lunch or dinner you cannot go wrong with going to the Metro

We love omelettes and wanted to make a comparison of omelettes here versus omelettes at a well known breakfast chain restaurant that we frequent back home. The omelettes here were the same price, but my hubby's... More

The yohalla sandwich it's really dessert. Very good supper rich definitely dessert though. The Greek salad was okay..Not as flavorful as one would have hoped compared to their other good which was fantastic. Get the... More
