Good food, good service – We've been twice, once for breakfast once for lunch, and satisfied. It's Mexican home cooking similar to what you'd get at Los Olivos, price is right. Service was very attentive. We'll go back again. Patio is pleasant even if it's in the parking lot. Good experience.
A gourmet market-cafe gone mainstream. – The Scene
Before Jacqueline's became Jacqueline's, it was C. Steele, the Valley's
first real gourmet shop. When Carol Steele left the building, she took much
of her energy with her. Still, as Jacqueline's, this full-service restaurant
and market remains popular with tourists and locals alike--primarily because
it offers so many experiences under one roof.
Although the inventory has been seriously reduced since C. Steele's heyday,
the marketplace still features Southwest specialty foods, wine, beer and
gifts, as well as customized gift baskets.
There are certain regulars who just come for the upscale breakfasts, which
include homemade corned beef hash, quiche, frittatas, omelets, and the
florid Sunrise Benedict (made with crab, asparagus, roasted red pepper and
green chile hollandaise on focaccia). Others like entree salads and fancy
sandwiches (try the ham and artichoke baguette) on the patio, coffee drinks
at the espresso bar or maybe just a quick stop at the bakery (offering
fresh-baked breads, cookies, cakes and cobblers), the gelato counter or the
chocolate display case.
None of the food here is great, but it's certainly serviceable, and thanks
to a certain amount of Southwestern color and kitsch, the cluttered decor
has its charms.
