Truly enjoyed the service and plating was acceptable but felt tucked in between the free standing tables. While it was a nice clean place and breakfast was above average, so are their prices. Again, service was above average and that's about all that can be said. We may eat there again but surely won't rush back.

Good selection on menu for breakfast with omelettes being their speciality - but not many tea varieties to choose from. Service was prompt and friendly.

My granddaughter attends Moravian College and we like to meet up for a weekly lunch date. Looked on Trip Advisor for a restaurant near her college. Found Jumbars! What a fabulous find. We may now make this our permanent meeting place!

We arrived a little after 7:45 when the restaurant had just opened. I saw that others complained about slow service. It wasn't as quick as a diner, but we had our food within 20 mines and I expect farm to table to take a little longer to cook. I ordered a special omelette with goat cheese, mushrooms, caramelized onions and... More

I went here this morning with my brother in law. We are like kings. We shared a "Duffin" and then he has the SOS and I had a New England omelette. All were delicious. We'll be going back.

We've come here many times for breakfast, and we've never been disappointed. The food is creative and fresh. The portions are good sized. Service is excellent. The prices are in the moderate range ... but worth it. The baked good and breads are homemade. Come early, or you will have to wait for a table. The dining room is very... More

My wife and I ate breakfast here on a Tuesday in mid-August 2016. We came in around 8:00am and were seated immediately at one of the two open tables at that time. The wait person checked with us about a minute later and we had coffee in another minute and placed our breakfast order a couple of minutes after that.... More

I was SO hoping this would be our new breakfast place. While the food was clearly homemade, the tiny portions (who serves ONE slice of toast) and the wait time (50 minutes for an omelet and a creamed chipped beef plate) just aren't worth it. The lackadaisical attitude of the staff is a clear indicator that these wait times are... More

Once again I visited the famed Jumbars at a friend's request. After 2 other visits that were at best mediocre, I went because she does enjoy it. I was underwhelmed, again. A small, half full restaurant should not take over 30 minutes to produce a salad and a sandwich. Those items should be as described on the menu. Both of... More

They only serve drip coffee (no espresso drinks), and the day we went had not a single juice available, nor any of the flavored iced teas, etc. The service is slow and unpolished. I don't mind a leisurely dinner, but we were trying to eat breakfast with a young child and would not have sat down if we'd realized the... More
