Many many customers have complained about this issue but nothing seems to be ever done about it. The food was super tasty, surely the best in the area. We always have the... More

I love this place. They have the best Smoothies and Thai Ice Coffee in town. My favorite dishes are the Spicy Basil Chicken and the Basil Chicken Chow fun. Friday's are crazy there so expect to wait for dishes. It is worth the wait.

We have been hooked on this place since their orange chicken, Sweet and sour shrimp, Chicken fried rice and not to mention their egg rolls. This place is the best Chinese We've had in forever!

Service was fast and the restroom was clean. Jeff Cafe was full of diners, even though we were there close... More

Delicious food..loved the hot and sour soup and string beans. A long smoothie list but it was snowing tonight so we had hot tea. Three of us had soup and three entrees for under $35. No alcohol. Courteous service. Atmosphere just local Chinese...many fusion dishes, Thai, Korean, etc.
