Why hasn't Jim's been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives? The food and service is always great. I seem to only go here in the morning and afternoon, but every meal so far has been wonderful. I have been eating at their establishment at

This is a great place to eat if you partied all night and need something to get you over the next day jitters.

Their food is a bit greasy and they have WAY TOO MUCH on their menu, it's kind of like a nightmare.

The pancakes are tasty and breakfast scrambles are fine, again, just a bit greasy.

PRO: good price
CON: Super long wait and greasy food

This place just welcomes you in. I love their breakfast but also enjoy the occasional dinner. The very reasonable prices also help It tends to be packed but it adds to the great atmosphere of the place. Just don??t over indulge, as it is on the greasy side.

While staying with family a trip to Jim's coffee shop for breakfast is a must. This shop is a real gem! The food is great and you can special order just about anything. They like kids and are so great with them. They are fast and the food hot. Highly recommend.

Jim's s a pretty good restaurant. The food is always good. A really good place to go for lunch. It says coffee shop, but they have really good food, too.

Ive been to lots of restuarants in the bay are and none compare to huge proportions of quality food put on one plate for such a low price. This b l o w s any other breakfast place out of the water. Definatly the best place around. The service is excellent! the food comes right away...i dont know how they do it.

Pros: Huge portions of food at a reasonable price/Great service/Everything! try the dinner menu it will b l o w ur mind how great it can be also

Cons: i cant find one thing wrong.

Jims seems to be the hub of Alameda breakfast fare. It's the place to go for weekend breakfast...and I know why. The food is great! Yeah, it can be crowded, and you'll have to wait on weekends to get in (usually no more than 20 minutes or so) but the food quality and value make up for it. Highly recommend the Chili Verde Omelet, pork chops, sandwiches, and any breakfast item. It's family owned and their staff is their extended family. So it's sorta like a home environment in a large diner out of the 40's...with great food. Highly recommended.

The food is fresh and real, the portions are enormous (I'm serious, the pork chops and eggs were 3 eggs and two huge chops!), the menu extensive. I've had better hotcakes but this is nice, solid, breakfast fare.

Nothing fancy here, but very solid. The line cooks really know their stuff and are happy to accomodate even on the busiest Sunday brunch.

But the best thing on the menu? Their Chicken Casear Salad!
Housemade dressing, not too garklicky and a full, perfectly grilled, fresh chicken breast for under $10. Tell them to skip the crummy pre-packaged croutons and ask for their bread instead.
I dine 5 star pretty often but I still have a Jim's chicken ceasar once a week. It's that good!

I enjoy the lack of pretense and none of that hokey fake 50's diner garbage, just solid American meals and some really nice Greek additions.

Jim's is the place to go for breakfast in Alameda. Period. The place is crazy busy all of the time, which lets you know how satisfying the food is. There is free coffee outside on the weekends for those who have to wait. There is something for everyone on the extensive menu. My favorite "sin" is the chicken fried steak and eggs with fruit on the side. There is a large selection of omelettes, french toast, waffles, as well as healthier stuff like salads. The staff are super friendly and very efficient, especially the man who oversees the waiting list. We haven't tried dinner there yet - they now serve beer and wine, but the selections look rather mainstream. I would like to see some Greek specialties on the menu that honor the family's heritage.

My friends have been telling me about this great place for breakfast, Jims Coffee Shop in Alameda. I wasnt the least disappointed after I finally decided to try to place. Its great that you can have great tasting breakfast (of generous portions not to mention) in the company of friendly waiters and waitresses who are always speedy in their service.

Jim's is packed every weekend morning with a line spilling out into the street for the right reason! Their food is excellent. I always choose from their list of delicious omlettes. They come with a side of hashbrowns that are huge and tasty. Their service is quick and efficient and I always get to take at least half of my meal home. It's not expensive either. For the meal I was just describing it's like $7. ENJOY!

Jim's serves up traditional American breakfasts in an equally traditional environment. Styled like a diner, Jim's conjures up both nostalgic feelings and hunger from the smells wafting out of the kitchen.

The food is average, sometimes a bit greasy, atmosphere is loud, voice seems to echo in the restuarant. Not a place to have a leisurely breakfast, too loud and frantic bustling of the waiters rushing about.

Great, simple food, best breakfast around right down to the homemade sausages. Not great if you are watching your waistline, but perfect comfort food when you need it.

Pros: Inexpensive, Great Atmosphere, Good Food

Simple, old-school food and ambiance; a real throwback. Huge portions. Don't expect to find real maple syrup, fresh herbs or artisan cheeses. Decidedly not gourmet, but good nonetheless in its own way (but skip the juice). Great people watching, too.
