We recently stopped by for a quick breakfast and were not disappointed. The croissants and other baked goods are freshly made on premises and are delicious. I was also impressed with the friendliness , service and freshness of all their offerings. Their lunches are also delicious as Chef James , the owner is a phenomenal Chef who has inspired all their offerings. Definitely my favorite lunch and breakfast destination in Kent!

Twice in two weeks,we stopped for lunch. Their food gets better each year. A specialty sandwich and a box of fries is more than enough to feed two adults. Weekends are a zoo with all the hikers, bikers ( cyclers also)and passing through cars.
The turkey blt wrap is especially good. they have good bakery items as well as organic drinks of all kinds.

We ordered the Bahn Mi sandwiches. They were very blind, pork wasn't seasoned well and the sauces typically found on a Bahn Mi were also not good. Maybe some of the other more traditional items are tastier

Delicious food at local Kent cafe. Enjoyed seared ahi tuna banh mi sandwich and curried chicken. Unassuming interior with nice patio seating. Food is high quality with interesting menu choices. Highly recommend.

The room is dull and almost ugly, but the food is wonderful. I loved the black sheep sandwich and the cookies. You put in your order and wait a long, long time. The service is painfully slow, but there's a friendly atmosphere. It could use some cleaning and decorating since there's nothing attractive about the place. However, the food is really good.

Thank You for your review of JP Gifford Market!!! We will never win any awards for decor and after the 300th person comes in on an average day the place will always look beat up. The floor is 80 years old and is replaced every January or February when at least 100 floor tiles have been pulverized under the feet of hungry patrons.
In most cases the wait times vary depending on how many people have ordered ahead of you.
All that being said, the food is really good.
