J’s Breakfast & Lunch
4 Yums 😋😋😋😋
My boyfriend loves breakfast food. So whenever he recommends a spot to try I’m always game for it because he knows breakfast. He took me to J’s Restaurant (formerly June’s) one morning when we 1st started dating and I’ve been going back ever since.
J’s is located in the hood (West Philly) and owned by a Korean family. They serve up traditional home style breakfast food that definitely meets the mark. This place is small, cramped, no frills no fuss and it’s always a wait. Service is quick and the food is good and inexpensive. My boyfriend lives about 10 minutes from J’s, so this has quickly become our go-to spot for when we’re too lazy to cook breakfast ourselves.
I’ve tried a few dishes at J’s but I always come back for the buttermilk pancakes. They are just perfect, light and fluffy as ever. I usually get a side of sausage with them. I’ve had the patties and links. The links are a good size, not thin or flimsy at all, and they serve them split.
My boyfriend usually gets the fish and grits with a side of eggs. You have your choice of flounder, tilapia or whiting. He always gets flounder and it’s always fried golden to perfection. Sometimes he goes with the standard sausage, eggs, grits and toast with some home fries on the side.
For all my non-pork eaters, this eatery sells turkey products so you’ll feel right at home. Another thing to note is that it’s cash only. But in case you forget, there’s an ATM on site for your convenience.
I love J’s. Nothing fancy, just good ole breakfast food that hits the spot. Next time you find yourself in West Philly, pay them a visit!
