Love this restaurant and have visited many times! Anytime of year is perfect, but summer is best when you can choose to order and dine at a bistro table out front. Lake Orion is such a quaint town and this establishment exudes that feeling. So many choices on the menu, there is something for everyone for either breakfast or lunch.

CJ's does awesome breakfasts. We go every weekend and are counter creatures. When we travel - everything is compared to CJ's. You cannot go wrong here. Great Omelets which are awesome. Too many places overcook omelets - these are great. Will make any kind you want if you don't see it on the menu. We love this place and love... More

We eat breakfast here pretty regularly. Their breakfast food is always great. The eggs are always cooked as requested, love the hashbrowns, and the sausage and biscuits are wonderful.

This is a *great* place to go have a traditional American-style breakfast. They also serve at other times of the day, but I've only been there for breakfast, so I can only review that part of it. This place has become a weekend go-to for breakfast before a round of golf on Saturday or Sunday morning.

I've been using the TripAdvisor app to find new restaurants to try near our new home and came across this place. I went here for brunch after church Sunday. The reviews said that the omelettes were good and I was very happy with my choice to go here. The omelette was quite large and delicious. The waitress suggested the raisin... More

The food and service was very good. It is a nice cozy place to enjoy a quiet lunch. A lot of the old restaurant appeal still around. The menu was extensive and the choices made it tough to choose. The other people around us seemed to like their meals.

I come her often to get some great breakfast. They have amazing omelette and pancakes! But I do not enjoy the lunch as much here. But best breakfast in town, easy.

We walked by the bar and saw the menu but not too busy inside early in a Saturday. We were greater by the bartender who said to go into the back for beyyer seating since we had a group of 10. Around the corner was an old fashion diner in a historic building with a few cute antiques and the... More
