Amazing food....anything with a sauce is a winner. Wonderful french toast, Eggs Casino, and Omelettes...yum. Don't forget their famous fish and chips for lunch. Planning my next trip to West Palm just so I can have the Eggs Casino again.

This is an encore, but as encores go is breakfast at Tiffany's ever finished. The staff here not only runs the place. They own it. There is a small town familiar charm exhibited which tells you they are glad you are back. And one of the four Bernaise sauces on their special tells you so. Plus watching the crowd in... More

I find the prices a little too high and the food a little too greasy. The portions are pretty large and that could be in part why it is so popular, I don't think it is the quality and certainly it is not the ambiance.

We enjoyed breakfast here twice while staying at the Eau Palm. The service was excellent! The breakfast options are plentiful and everything we ordered was very good. This is a real gem in the area.

This is by far the best food ever!! Downsides are long lines, which tells you how good this experience is and they take case only.

I left. Dirty, wet food covered, spoons was placed on our table. Evidentally their dishwasher isn't cleaning properly. I would not eat here.

Four generations of our family have been coming here over the course of 40 years. But we sold our condo just down the street last year and with it had our last meal at John G's. We mostly came for lunch and always had the best clam chowder ( with the fritters of course) and the "fish and fruit "... More

We stayed across the street at the Eau Palm Beach and Resort and came here everyday for breakfast. They only take cash so make sure to leave the credit cards at home. The blueberry pancakes, with scrambled eggs, bacon, grits and their fresh squeezed orange juice was out of this wonderful. Big blueberries and fluffy pancakes. The breakfast was absolutely... More

Wonderful food and fair pricing. A local favorite. Would not serve breakfast on a Sunday five minutes after the changeover though. But the food and friendly service was great.
