Jimmy’s Grand Cafe
1001 Castle Hill Ave

Jimmy’s Grand Café may not fit the typical definition of a luncheonette: a small, laid-back restaurant that serves lunch. It’s not so small and it serves more than just lunch. But Bronx voters love to eat here for lunch so much that they voted it the borough’s best luncheonette. It’s also certainly laid-back. Diners love its salads, soups, burgers – especially the half-pound cheeseburger – and other American dishes, as well as its empanadas and other Latin American dishes. Jimmy’s also serves various delicious drinks, including coconut mojitos and mimosas. The restaurant gets praise for its friendly staff and good service. Local businesses also like the fact that Jimmy’s delivers. If you’re in a rush, you can also take advantage of its advance order feature so your lunch is ready precisely when you want it.
