We were looking for a good breakfast, close to Valley Forge and we certainly found it at EmJs. It's casual, the food is wonderful, service quick and friendly. We had salmon Florentine eggs Benedict and Almond Joy pancakes. Our server was Courtney and she was fun! The only bad thing is that we don't live closer.

You can count on EmJ's to provide a good breakfast and a friendly atmosphere. They offer your basic breakfast staples and there are several specials every day. Prices are perhaps a bit on the high-moderate side, and it sometimes gets crowded on the weekend, but the food is good and the service accommodating. Great local spot to relax with friends... More

This has become our week day spot for friends wanting to linger over breakfast without the feeling we are holding up the waitress or the table! I have also eaten here with a large group in the private room. Always find breakfast to be very good!

Food quality always top notch at family prices. Had the omelette with scrapple and the potatoes were unique and flavorful. The potatoes are their specialty but don't ask for the recipe! They feature to specialty organic coffee's with unlimited refills.

Like this place for breakfast. A tad high priced, but very good food. If they could only make better coffee.

EmJ's is the perfect place for breakfast and lunch. The tag "Good food, done right" is spot on. Traditional breakfast or something with a twist, you will not be disappointed. Today four of us met for a holiday get together. Two of us had the Turkey Club sandwich, perfect balance of kitchen roasted turkey, crisp bacon, tomato, lettuce and mayo.... More

I have been here several times and it has always been a great little place for breakfast but today it was lacking a bit. The Eggs Benedict has slipped from my first experience. The Hollandaise sauce was like water today. Very thin and did not have the thickness required for a proper Eggs Bene. The coffee, as always, was top... More

We had been looking for a new place for a quick breakfast and I came across Em J's this weekend while my wife was out of town so I decided to give it a try. We always use the Eggs Benedict as our judge for breakfast. This place had a good Eggs Benedict...better than most. The breakfast potatoes were tasty... More
