This was our third visit to the Fort Jesse Cafe and each time we have had to wait for seating. You can grab a cup of coffee while you wait but it is worth it. The food is really good and a variety of things to choose from pleasing the entire family.

I come here and have breakfast with my friend often. The food is good and the coffee is too. If you can get past the wait that is there most days then I highly suggest you try it. The wait is longer on the weekend to sit but during the week it's minimal.

There were about 10 things on the menu I would have loved to try... but we went for the shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles. They were great!
