We had to be in Albuquerque for a fasting blood draw. Afterwards, we wanted a really good place to have breakfast. I remembered that Jimmy's Cafe on Jefferson was open for breakfast. We were seated right away and our server promptly took our drink orders. I ordered the meat skillet with sausage, ham and carne adovada which came on a... More

The coffee was very weak, the eggs and hash browns average, and the turkey sausage poor quality. There are other local places I would prefer to visit for breakfast instead.

This place is great, I would highly recommend if your in Albuquerque. The chili is awesome. I had the breakfast enchiladas and had them put a scrambled egg in each one, good stuff!

We love Jimmys Breakfast. Have to try the meaty skillet. Full of flavor. Service is also awesome with very friendly and attentive waitresses. This is by far our favorite breakfast spot.

Was fearful the large number of folks waiting to be seated would be a factor - the hostess was terrific, heck we were seated in less than 8 minutes at 11:00 AM on a Sunday!! Decor was warm, comfortable and very tasteful - service was spot on, friendly,knowledgeable and fast. Ordered the SW Eggs Benny and Pancakes - both were... More

We went during the week and during the breakfast hours. Atmosphere was great, seating was available and the food was amazing. While the server was a little preoccupied and our clerk who ran the register was a bit short, the other staff who helped we're awesome. We would definitely go again!

I think mostly locals go here, but my son and his fiancé found this place while visiting and wanted to take me there too. It was reasonably priced and filling.

We went to Jimmy's based on location. The breakfast menu was really extenstive - - almost too many offerings. Staff was very friendly and fun. The food was excellent and the portions large. Price was more than fair. Obviously freqented by many local people as it got very busy as we left.

Casual atmosphere with good food. Service and portion size are both good. They have a number of skillets with interesting combinations with both country gravy and green chili toppings.

Jimmy's was close to our hotel and had Tripadvisor 4.5 star rating so I decided to pass on the free hotel breakfast and treat myself to a nice breakfast before a day of driving. I should have realized it wasn't going to be great when I got the coffee... which was mediocre at best. The breakfast special had meat, chorizo... More
