J&M Cafe Restaurant Review

: Although J&M stays open through lunchtime, breakfast foods are its big draw. All the morning classics are offered, ranging from biscuits and gravy to homefries with melted cheddar and fresh salsa, Belgian waffles, egg scrambles, and hearty breakfast burritos. Tofu may be substituted in the egg dishes. If there’s a wait to be seated, and on weekends there probably will be, self-serve Stumptown coffee poured into an array of quirky mugs mitigate any impatience. If breakfast dishes don't appeal when lunchtime rolls around, try a tasty sandwich such as one featuring chicken breast with tomato jam, Fontina and fennel slaw. Or hedge your bets with a breakfast/lunch merger such as the "Johnson family sandwich" of Canadian bacon, cheddar, egg and mustard greens on a biscuit, with homefries. J&M once didn't accept credit cards (an ATM is on premises), but this policy appears to be evolving. At present, they will accept credit if you pay at the counter instead of at your table. The policy on cell phone conversations, though, hasn't changed: smartphone silence is the golden rule.
