A local, organic brunch spot


Last week I reviewed The Jones B-side. This week I reviewed their first location, The Jones Eastside, located on NE 23rd Ave.

The interior of the eatery has a bright, homey feel that reflects their organic menu. Black boards featuring specials decorate the walls, a couple fresh flowers sit on each table and the bar seating area faces into an open kitchen. I felt like I was in a small town, ma-and-pa type place.

I was very tempted to try the peanut butter French toast, which was one of the specials, but I ended up choosing the Jones’ Rancheros because I was in the mood for something savory. My dish consisted of two corn tortillas filled with black beans and topped with two eggs, cheese, salsa, sour cream, avocado and a side of home fries. The meal was delicious, but just like at the other location, they’re very stingy with their avocado.

I was impressed by the variety of dishes on the menu, all made with local, organic ingredients. Their specials all sounded great as well, and I like that they change regularly depending on what particular items they currently have in stock.

My meal cost $8.95, and most of the other dishes were around this price range. The prices aren’t exactly cheap for the average college student’s budget, but if you value local and organic food I think the price is worth it.

The little restaurant is located in a small plaza. There are 10 to 12 tables inside, and a couple on the patio, so I wouldn’t recommend coming with a large party. Keep in mind they only accept cash or check.

The Jones Eastside’s hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and they proudly serve breakfast all day. They have lunch and dinner options as well.
