We had breakfast here and for three people it was $28.78. We did not order any drinks or anything special. This is a Greek style restaurant

Greek owned. GREAT for breakfast. They make their own potatoes which are fantastic. Service with a smile, fast and clean. You will never be disappointed at a Greek owned diner and Jimmy's is one of the nicest I've been to. Will be back weekly.

Your old standard diner. Open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfasts are my favorite. Great omelets and waffles.

This is the classic local breakfast joint. I would never have stopped in if someone hadn't recommended it to me, but the food is delicious. Each time we have eaten here, we have been treated like long lost friends by the server/owner. Last fall, when I hosted a mini-reunion weekend for my dad and his brothers, we took them here... More

We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning. The food was food and decently priced. Jimmy's is a small cafe in downtown Valpo and very affordable. We had breakfast sandwich and waffles. If you r looking for designer coffee and tea this is not ur place.

This is a family owned, diner style restaurant. We went for breakfast and the food was great, service was quick, prices were fair! We will be back on our next visit to Valpo.

Breakfast at Jimmy's is a long-standing tradition, with good reason: it's excellent. Service is warm and friendly and no-nonsense competent, and while the food is generally great, the potatoes are absolutely, positively the best I've ever had at any breakfast spot anywhere in the world!

Jimmy's is a cozy family owned/run restaurant in downtown Valparaiso. Great Greek food and fabulous breakfast With ample portions and reasonable priced. One word of caution it is cash only. But worth the trip to the ATM 😊

A cute little Greek restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. We mainly eat breakfast there and love the food. Really fast service if you are in a hurry, but want to eat and be on your way.
