Quirky with interested breakfasts, the joint offers a nice choice off the square for breakfast. The coffee is excellent, and the staff enjoy their jobs and are welcoming as can be.

Went to this place for breakfast. There was a long line and a long wait. Figured it had to be awesome food. Well all I can say is, it's average. I gave it an extra star for having gluten free food. The place is quirky in a quirky neighborhood, what do you expect next to campus. There was limited housekeeping... More

My wife and I love this cozy bakery and cafe. The baked goods and breakfast foods are delicious. There are so many cool decorations. We eat here at least a few times a month.

Jane's is a funky little cafe & bakery. Surrounded by art from local artists. Open only till 3 in the after noon it's mostly breakfast and lunch. Counter served multi-cuisine fare that's fresh and family friendly. Their signature scones and pasteries are to die for with flavors you won't see anywhere else. Also great for Vegans and Vegetarians (try the... More

Our daughters love Lazy Janes, so when visiting them over the weekend, we decided to have breakfast there. We are so glad we did! We loved the cute, "living room" type atmosphere! We loved the homey antique decorations. We each loved our breakfasts, but especially loved the breakfast potatoes, blueberry pancakes, and waffle with berries. If you see a line... More

We live almost two hours away and have to visit Madison somewhat frequently and we and the kids always choose Lazy Janes. It has a great atmosphere and superb food. The kids always enjoy their food although the portion sizes might be a bit on the generous side - I'd love it if a smaller version, for a little less... More

I thought Lazy Janes offered great atmosphere. I regret visiting on a day when I wasn't very hungry. I ordered a pig in the blanket. I am used to a Dutch style pig in the blanket and what I received was a sausage link wrapped in a pancake. I wish I had ordered something else. But, the place was very... More

August 16, 2016 Love the little table with the ridiculously comfy chairs (upper level overlooking the stairs). What a great place for tea and a speedy eggwich. We were so happy, we didn't want to leave.

Lazy Jane's proved to be a most perfect way to wind down our weekend visit to Madison. We stopped on our way out of town for brunch on a Sunday, and though the wait was probably about 45-55 minutes from the time you began in the line until you sat down to dine, it was worth it. We had our... More
