I only went to Jake's twice, but I enjoyed both times so much. I used to hate the idea of going out for breakfast. Sometimes I have trouble going out to restaurants in general because, well, my parents were good cooks, and I've been doing it for the longest time and am also getting pretty decent at it, if I may say so, so I'll say "eh, but why pay if I can make it at home? and probably better." Pancakes were one of the first things I learned to make. So, seriously, why go out for breakfast? Well, maybe you're traveling. Maybe you just want to go out in the morning for a change. Maybe you do want something fancy like Eggs benedict. Maybe they have something you don't know how to make. I guess there are a bunch of reasons. My reasons are more about going out with a friend, and catching up. And not wanting dining hall food. If you're in Northampton, Jake's is one of the best places for breakfast. It always comes down to "Jake's, Green Bean, or Sylvester's?" It's hard... But maybe you're lucky. Maybe you have three mornings in Northampton.
I don't know what this place is called. Stupid of me, maybe. I call it 40 Green Street but often people are confused: "That Lunch place?" Uhhh... maybe? They don't seem to have a website, a Facebook page or anything. I went there with my mom ages and ages ago. I got the ham, cheddar and eggs croissant which was simple and good. My mom got the one that came with hash browns. Scrambled eggs with hash browns. Because she hadn't lived or been in the US in a long time and remembered loving hash browns. When her plate came, the girl said "Sorry, we don't have hash browns today so I gave you a croissant." My mom said nothing but I was pretty annoyed. I did nothing, 'cause whatcha gonna do? Still, this was very unprofessional. I've heard a lot of great reviews. People told me to go for lunch but I never did. I'm sure all their things are delicious but the second time I went with a friend, they were out of ham or cheese or something and couldn't make one of the few things on their menu. So we left. Ups and downs. This is probably just me being unlucky both times. This place (40 Green Street) is very cute, and opens very early. Enjoy it! Other than the two mishaps there, it was still good!
