Jines: Serving Brunch and Procrastinating Minds Since 1971

IMG_0967_editLet’s face it; it’s past mid-semester and we are all drowning in homework (or work). If you’re a senior, you’re also starting to feel pressure about the day after graduation. I know I am. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t need a break sometimes. While we may not feel like we have any time, the truth is: we need to eat. Whether your life revolves around food or you view going out to eat as an expensive form of procrastination, I have something for you to consider: treat yourself to brunch.

My favorite way to procrastinate on Sunday mornings is brunch. So, I thought I would share one of my favorite places. Admittedly, I am biased to Jines because I live across the street. But it still has a lot to offer.

For those of you who don’t have the luxury of living across the road from one of the best brunch places in Rochester, it’s located on Park Ave, downtown. For easy off street parking, try the lot down the street.

IMG_0968_editMy favorite things about Jines:

  • Large breakfast menu (with an added page of brunch specials)
  • Free mimosas (on special occasions and holidays)
  • Seasonal sidewalk seating
  • Large portions (for a reasonable price)


Dishes I recommend:

  • Mushroom omelette ($4.95)
  • California eggs Benedict ($8.25)
  • Cinnamon swirl French toast ($5.95

A few added bonuses:IMG_0969_edit

  • Gluten Free Toast
  • Organic Eggs
  • Seasonal Fresh Fruit

Keep in mind:

  • Jines is popular with many Rochester natives, so be prepared to wait for a table (20 minutes is common).

So, this Sunday (when you wake up a little groggy and too stressed to tackle any homework, resumes, and applications), it might be worth it to procrastinate for a little while. I always find I work better on a full stomach and, if you’re anything like me, your fridge is probably a little empty.
