“Very good breakfast!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

My wife and I had breakfast one morning at Jan's. The service was friendly (a little slow), but the food was better then most small-town cafés. The short stack of pancakes was huge with a nice "griddle" taste which also was evident in my wife's eggs and sausage.
If you grew up in a small town, you're going to enjoy this restaurant. The food, prices, and the atmosphere makes this a local's spot.

“Great food and run by local family!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

DH had a breakfast for dinner and I had a hot sandwich and fries. Both were very good. Great place for standard American style food that was price appropriately. Best of all, your money goes to support locals. The young people working there for the summer were very enthusiastic and I think our waiter was maybe family of the owner. Service was good and the portions were large. Definitely would eat there again!

“Must be good by the size of the crowd.”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The restaurant was crowded which is usually a good sign. Locals must all eat there. The food portions are large, service w a s fast and dessert was delicious...an unusual array of pies to chose from and they are good!! Prices are standard for food in other restaurants but the portions are bigger than most. A nice place to eat..and breakfast is served all day.

“Good Home Cooking”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Jan's is a staple in Buena Vista. You can always count on a good meal. There's nothing fancy about it, but it's good. I did notice the pictures on the walls. They were great.
