It's a diner, and it's a pretty good one. If you understand that then you'll be happy. If you expect something fancier, then you won't.

My husband and I really enjoyed our breakfast. He had the Breakfast Special and I had the Breakfast Burrito. The food was very well prepared and the potions were more than we could eat. I highly recommend this place. It's was a very pleasant surprise.

This cafe has great home-cooked food, but was kinda pricey. We decided not to go to Waffle House for brunch when we heard this place was around the corner on Greenville in Dallas. Would have given it an Excellent rating if the price was right. $30 for two to eat quick diner food was a little too much. If your... More

When I pulled up to John's Cafe, I wasn't sure what to expect. It's in the middle of a pretty standard shopping center and didn't look like anything special. When I walked in, I noticed that the walls were lined with newspaper articles and photographs from the cafe's decades of business. John himself greeted me at the counter and I... More

I've eaten at John's regularly since 1976! John and group will fix your food any way you want it. BLT on a bun instead of toast, no problem. Hamburger steak without the cooked onions but with the gravy, no problem. Club sandwich with only two to pieces of untoasted white bread, no problem. If you can say it, they will... More

This is not a place you would drive by and say oh, let's eat there. We looked up on yelp & it had great rating. As we pulled up we questioned, but walked in and the place was packed. There were four of us for breakfast and we all ordered different items. We were happy with all. You order at... More

There are not too many of these places left where you can get old fashioned breakfast and it was really reasonably priced. We were delighted with this choice for breakfast. We are sure to do this again.

This place was no frills, easy to order quick breakfast. Order it up, sit down and it gets brought to you quickly. The hot tea and coffee were perfect, hashbrowns some of the best I have ever tasted, perfect mix of crispy yet tender potatoes, delicious pancakes and eggs, and rich chocolate milk all for a reasonable price. It didn't... More
