Located on Business Loop 70, JJ’s Cafe is most convenient for north Columbia residents, but it’s also worth a drive across town. The spot has a large menu filled with popular breakfast fare bearing Columbia-themed names, such as the Hungry Tiger or the Mizzou Scramble. One of the most popular orders at JJ’s Cafe is the Country Fried Steak, which consists of hand-breaded round steak, topped with JJ’s homemade sausage gravy, two large eggs, hash browns, toast and jelly.
JJ’s Cafe also has a great small-town feel with coloring book pages on the walls clearly colored in by kids, and a lot of Mizzou apparel, worn by both the customers and the waitresses. JJ’s is a great option if you’re looking for somewhere off the beaten downtown path, but not too far off.
