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.

Really nice people but the food is very greasy. Says on the menu that they cook in butter. It's a decent cheap breakfast but nothing fancy. Very small room and it feels cramped and claustrophobic every time I've walked in there.

Jimmy's is a good home town restaurant for breakfast and lunch. The service is very good and the food is always fresh. If in the area it is worth a try.

Very fast service and food is out to the table in no time. Only half a block from the 'main drag' to quite convenient. Food was good and well priced. The waitress was talking loudly on her cell phone (in another language) the entire time we were there and that was very distracting.But everything was as we ordered and she... More

We love to go to Jimmy's for breakfast on the weekends. The staff is beyond friendly and the food is fast, inexpensive and filling. We love a hearty breakfast, and that is what we always get. It is not fancy, which may be part of the reason we like it. Cash only.

Wonderful, downtown, breakfast/lunch diner. Great breakfast omelets and pancakes; always smiling staff. Like the club sandwich for lunch, crispy fries. Hard to get to for a few months as there is construction just north of the restaurant, but it's worth the trip!

If you are looking for a great breakfast or lunch, Jimmy's is the perfect place. The service is very fast, even when they are busy. Down to earth tasty food which is reasonably priced. We have never been disappointed with a meal from Jimmy's. The hardworking owners are always on site, and are delightful.
