Had to wait 45 minutes for a table, but it was worth it. Great coffee!! Pancakes were delicious and so were the sides.

The restaurant was really clean or had a very clean feel. We arrived early and it was almost someone at every table.... If you like pancakes and you want something special go to this... More

I asked for my eggs softly scrambled and I don't think they know what that means because my husbands eggs looks the same as mine... More

Delicious food, great atmosphere (although a little noisy), excellent service! Recommend this to anyone visiting LA, but avoid the weekends. We went on a Monday morning and were seated right away.

Mmmm, very satisfying, comfort food. Servings are good sized. Of course the pancakes were great. Their food is not greasy, undercooked, past freshness, or anything along those lines that you might run into at other places. They have a very pleasant and helpful staff, we felt very welcome. The place is popular and crowded with a somewhat long wait. There's... More

Jack's N Joe is located in the Figueroa Corridor in the USC or University Park neighborhood. Their specialty is the variety of pancakes and omlettes. They serve a good breakfast. In addition to indoor seating there are 8 stools for the counter. Service is very good and the food is basic, if not a bit on the high side. Parking... More

Glad I read the post about the parking...very tight squeeze in front, more parking in the back. The breakfast was excellent. I had 7 Minutes in Heaven, which was French Toast made with Hawaiian bread, Nutella, strawberries & bananas. It was very good. I also had a yummy pineapple mango smoothie. My husband enjoyed the coffee. He said it was... More
