We stopped here for an daly breakfast (they open 7am-12noon). They looked like they were expecting a bunch of people but when we got there there were only a few of us. The food was fantastic, service quick, efficient and friendly. I'm somewhat of a...More

I went here for breakfast and had the Southwestern Eggs Chorizo with fried potatoes. Oh my goodness. It was so good! I would be perfectly content having this for breakfast every day. I'm interested in trying their other options. The coffee was just as good...More

This is considered "THE" place for breakfast & always a line out the door. The last couple times we've been there - July 2016 & now October 2016, the food has been good but not great. Service was abrupt and coffee was horrible.

We had a great breakfast after our river trip. They have some great unique recipes as well as traditional breakfast fare. The ginger pancakes and chorizo scramble were excellent. The service was very good too.

Jailhouse only serves breakfast. Lots of egg dishes, one waffle dish and one yoghurt dish. I hoped that they would offer more options than only egg dishes since this place claims to be an expert in breakfast. Maybe in the future? Staff is friendly but...More

The Jailhouse is extremely popular and for good reason. They only serve breakfast as that is what they do best. The pancakes were light and fluffy and the Eggs Benedict were terrific. There was a short wait for a table but it moved quickly. The...More

We went to the Jailhouse Cafe to get a large breakfast after hiking Arches National Park at sunrise. There was a line but it moved quickly. I ordered a chorizo egg platter and my husband ordered pancakse. We were both extremely happy with our choices....More
