At first glance the café appears to be a patio extension of ChinaTown Restaurant, but a closer look reveals a quaint, quirky little eatery; bistro-style dining in its truest form. As soon as you enter you are greeted by a bright and cheerful place with warm teal walls, dozens of photographs peppering the room, and highly attentive staff. If you are the sort of person who hates going to crowded restaurants, then this is the place for you, because Jade Cafe doesn’t seat more than 30 people indoors, and perhaps around 20 outside on the open-air deck, which is an excellent brunch spot for the current season, and even more beautiful at night when a canopy of fairy lights is aglow.
So, this little café passes the test on ambience and aesthetics, but of course, the real question remains whether the menu is up to strength. Well, Jade Café offers all-day breakfast: a wide assortment of pancakes, waffles, crepes, eggs, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. The fare is fresh, delicious, and served very quickly (I know this because our table ordered a second helping of dessert halfway through our meal when we were running low on Nutella Stuffed French Toast).
When a gratifying combination of the California Club Sandwich and Red Velvet Waffles will have you feeling drowsy in your chair, a cup of their spiced tea will perk you right up (if tea isn’t your thing, you’ll have a wide variety of other beverages to choose from, hot or cold).
All things considered, you are almost guaranteed to leave Jade Café with a mostly-full wallet and an immensely satisfied stomach.
