All day breakfast and lunch cafe
As is the nature of greasy spoon diners, Jim's cafe offers heart-attack inducing food at a good price. However, Jim's cafe also offers fruit dishes, which is excellent. The servers are always friendly and the ambience, though not great, is much better than most diners (which are usually dirty and often rat-infested). It's a decent place for a relaxed breakfast.
This cafe/diner is located in the Uptown area of New Westminster. I discovered it in the past couple of years and have been to it at least a couple of times every month since.
When you step through the door into the 'cafe', you feel as if you have gone back in time. The booths and 'feel' of the place remind me of the 50's (I am guessing as I was born in the 60's). I have been consistently greeted with a smile and friendly welcome by the young lady who usually does the seating and serving. The clientele tends to be 'adult-oriented'.
The menu offers a good, inexpensive selection of typical Canadian 'breakfast' and 'lunch' items.
I regularly visit other 'breakfast' restaurants in the Uptown area. I prefer to go to "Jim's" for the omelettes and sausages.
Breakfast at Jims is unlikely to disappoint. Since Jasna took over she has been improving the decor a bit at a time and it is now quite pleasant and comfortable. There is always a lineup for breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings because we know we will get good, comforting bacon and egg type breakfasts, quickly, at a modest price.
this place has always provided consistently tasty, huge, fresh breakfasts for cheap. after years of having the regular breakfast (2 eggs, bacon, grated hashbrowns, & toast for $4) i ventured out and got the breakfast sandwich that comes with a fruit bowl... oh my goodness! the sandwich is what you would expect, but the fruit bowl was amazing! fresh & full of variety, care & attention in the presentation. This is the best greasy spoon diner in New West!
I've been here for breakfast a few times, despite the overwhelming smell of hot grease that welcomes you when you walk in the door. The breakfasts themselves are decent, plentiful and cheap, but beware of ordering any kind of juice (orange, apple, etc.) as you'll find the glass of juice costs almost as much as the bacon, eggs and toast you consumed.
