Primos Cafe is a fast, casual restaurant located near Jackson, Mississippi. It was opened in the 1920’s by a Greek immigrant baker named Angelo “Pop” Primos. Even after all of these years, Primos Cafe still remains incredibly popular among Jackson residents for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With their old-timey decor, home-cooked food, and awesome bakery, it is no wonder why Primos is always busy serving Southern food to city folks.

Why We Went: For the first time in months, Blake (my fiancé) and I were out running errands before noon. Since it was 10 AM, we decided on breakfast and could think of nowhere we would rather go than Primos Cafe.
What We Had: I opted for the Early Bird Special with a biscuit, cheese grits, bacon, and scrambled eggs. My biscuit was fluffy, bacon crispy, and eggs cooked perfectly (I ordered the cheese grits for Blake), so I was a happy camper. Blake had the Breakfast Sandwich (scrambled egg whites, ham, and cheese all on a biscuit) and hash browns topped with cheese. He loved every bite.
Something Special: Primos Cafe has an in-house bakery that makes treats from scratch daily. Their cakes are so popular, that Primos will ship them anywhere in the country!
Noteworthy: Monday thru Friday, Primos offers Blue Plate Specials during lunch which are incredibly popular and always feature traditional Southern food.
Best Part of the Meal: Primos Cafe has the best sweet tea! You can even take your cup home with you.
Bonus: There is a “Take Away” cooler inside of the to go door which is always stocked with Primos’ salad dressings, pastas, cakes, potato salad, pimento cheese, and their famous chicken salad. Guests can come in and pick up these items at any time and they are perfect for parties, office lunches, or tailgating in The Grove.
What Needs Improvement: Since they serve breakfast all day, it might be nice to have a few more breakfast oriented options.
