If you're not from the east side, then you might not have heard of Jumps; but this hidden gem has become a neighborhood favorite.
"We're actually the oldest restaurant in Grosse Pointe Farms," explains chef and owner Chad Stewart."My mentor chef opened Jumps in May of 1990 downstairs in the lower level of the building we are in right now."
In 1994 Chad took over the restaurant from his mentor chef and eventually moved it up stairs into it's current location in 63 Kercheval. They kept the same style of food, using fresh ingredients making everything from scratch, and have expanded the menu over the years.
They serve up classic American cuisine, but add their own twist to it, like their salmon cake benedict.
"We just take American classics, American basics and build off that, add different ethnic twists to them. We try to keep it simple, and let the food be what it is instead of trying to cover, coat, dip, everything and get a whole different flavor out of something that is not what it is. I want my lobster to taste like lobster, " says Stewart.
While they serve three meals a day here, they are probably best known for their brunch, wining Vote 4 the Best the last 2 years in a row for Best Brunch. With their homemade pastries, fresh omelettes and the eye catch puff pancake it's not hard to see why.
If you would like to try Jumps they are located at 63 Kercheval Ave. in Grosse Pointe Farms. Their main entrance is actually on the back side of the building on St. James Way. For more information, visit their website here.
