We gad been there once before several years ago and we're satisfied. This past Saturday we had out of town guests and decided to take them there for breakfast. The wait was acceptable perhaps 15 minutes. After ordering our food we waited 55 minutes for our breakfast food. One order scrambled eggs came hot, the other 3 breakfast buritto orders... More

We had to pick up our parents at the airport around 9 am. So, we were online searching for a place to eat breakfast and avoid morning traffic. This place was rated in the top 10. It did not disappoint. The view is the thing. It is right on a private jet runway. The portions were large, the food came... More

The view at this restaurant is unmistakably awesome. It was a lot of fun for the kids to be able to see helicopters and Cessna is taking off and Landing they thoroughly enjoyed it so did I. The menu you had a lot of different options with descriptions that made me want to try it all. The first thing I... More

I have been there a few times and have enjoyed it every time. Had the BBQ chicken salad today and it was fantastic. My friend had the tuna melt and she loved it. Good service, nice setting. Always busy. Try to get there by noon or you will wait

Celebrated a special occasion with an early breakfast (7:30 AM) at Jet Runway Cafe. Portions were large, could hardly finish my "Banyan" breakfast plate. Our server Luanda was excellent and we can't wait to return. Best views for breakfast watching the sunrise and the private planes taking off and landing.

Not your typical airport cafe food. The fish tacos were very good. The restaurant has plenty of window seating to take in the views of the Executive airport. If there was a downside, it was the large lunch crowd. We waited about 10-15 minutes. Not a big deal for us, but may be a factor if you're in a hurry.

Normally a very busy place we were seated immediately upon arrival. We both had salads which were large, fresh and delicious one of which was the Crispy Asian Chicken salad which was delicious. The service was great. So happy to have found this place!

Thanks for your review, dnjohnson721. We appreciate the feedback! Wait times can sometimes be long at lunch due to the limited seating. We're looking to expand in the near future to another airport in the vicinity. Hoping you'll come back and see us again! #JetRunwayCafe More
