I was at Jake's this past Saturday. My eggs were perfect, "over light", bacon was light and crispy, and pancakes big and fluffy. Jake's is small and you might have to wait in line on the weekends, but it is by far the best place around. I would recommend to anyone to try it at least once and you will be back!

I used to travel a lot for business so I know a great breakfast and lunch when I taste one. Jakes is that one. Great choices all freshly made and yes you can see them making it. Staff knows their customers by name because they have many regulars who go there every day. There are many choices in Marlborough but they are always filled with customers. Kid friendly, family friendly and a great place to enjoy food.

Jakes is a crowded, down-home grill where waiting for a table for Sunday brunch is a time to greet friends and check out the specials posted behind the counter. There is a lot of food, and last time our two teenagers visitors went home with doggie bags. You want chocolate bits in your pancakes, crave more heated syrup, whatever you fancy they provide. Endless cups of coffee and tea while you inevitably wind up talking to someone at the next table. Out of town visitors always ask to return to Jakes, and if you like local color, this is definitely the place to stop.

Ok, so it's a dive and the floring could be replaced. It's clean, it's raunchy, and its all about the breakfast and the smiles! Open kitchen, clean, fast. Eggs any which way you like them. They have a bit heavy on the pepper for my taste corned beef hash that is meaty, not greasy, really good. Perfect poached eggs. Neatly folded omelettes, grilled muffins... Just simple food made really well. And cheap!
