Jake's Restaurant Review: Jake's owners originally envisioned their place as a gourmet take-out store, but quickly realized they could do a good trade by also providing attractive seating in which to enjoy the food. They created a pretty little eating area and bar in the small courtyard and transformed the even smaller front section of the store into a rather elegant lounge with tables and a view of the mountains. The result is a thriving restaurant/take-out place that combines casual ease, efficiency, a charming setting and good food. Locals drop in for tasty salads and sandwiches at lunchtime (try the chicken curry wrap in a spinach tortilla) as well as constantly changing specials. For dinner, the crab cakes, meatloaf and four-cheese macaroni and cheese all go fast when they are on the menu. Baby-back ribs with a pineapple teriyaki glaze are a good way to start the meal. Tailored menus are also provided for special occasions. The indoor space can be reserved for private parties.
