You can certainly find fancier and more expensive places to go for breakfast, but Jim's is down-home, neighborhood friendly food and with Joni as your server, just plain fun. They do lunch as well, but it's a go-to place for a simple, enjoyable and very...More

An old fashioned mom & pop cafe. Mom & the waitress staff provide good service and Dad cooks up a delicious breakfast for you. They make their own sourdough bread as well as sausage, though I thought the bacon was even tastier. We enjoyed the...More

This little store-front coffee shop, across the parking lot from the Boise Co-Op, offers fresh, delicious breakfasts and lunches at amazingly low prices. For example, an egg salad sandwich is $3.50 ! The service is great, the people are friendly, and you won't walk away...More

Great breakfast to a very local crowd. Friendly Waite Staff and patrons. Be ready to be greeted by strangers eating there too.

It would be a retro-diner, but it's the real thing still operating with a firecracker waitress, gruff cook, comfort-food menu, decor, and even a stereo pre-dating MP3 by a generation. And it all works. At breakfast, the eggs come out perfect accompanied by high-quality bacon,...More
