There is a new breakfast option in Wakefield, next to the railroad tracks. Cafe Jag's has only been open for a short time but already seems quite popular based on the crowds I have seen on most of my visits. Though they started off just serving breakfast, they have begun serving dinner as well. I have not been there for dinner yet so this review will pertain only to their breakfast service.
The breakfast menu has all the standards, such as eggs, egg sandwiches, pancakes, French toast, waffles and omelettes. Prices are reasonable such as $5.50 for a cheese omelette with home fries and toast and $4.99 for a Belgium waffle. If you are really hungry, you can one of their specials such as The Logger ($9.99), which includes 2 eggs, 2 slices of French toast, 2 pancakes, 2 slices of bacon, 2 sausages, home fries, toast, juice and coffee.
The food is mostly very good. I really like the French toast and the omelettes are excellent. They serve chorizo and it is delicious, a bit spicy and with lots of flavor. You can order it as a side, or get it in an omelette. The English muffins surprised me, being thicker than the usual muffin and quite good. The only thing I disliked were the pancakes. Though they are huge, almost the size of the plate, I found them too heavy and cakey. I prefer a lighter and fluffier pancake.
Service has been up and down. The restaurant does not yet appear to handle crowds well, making service sometimes very slow. On one visit, despite plenty of customers, there only appeared to be one waitress on duty and she was clearly overwhelmed. On another visit, despite a couple servers, they still could not adequately handle the crowd. This is something that they hopefully will address in the near future. As they are still new, I grant them some leeway in this regard.
I am glad to see another breakfast place in the local area and hope they improve their service issues soon. I am curious as to their dinner menu so will check them out soon and report back.
