Off Las Vegas’s beaten track, Jamm’s is all about breakfast. Coffee is hot and flowing; omelets are stuffed with all manner of eccentric fillings (and are available as burritos if you prefer).
Jamm’s signature omelette is stuffed with Philly cheese steak hash, grill-browned onions, and mushrooms, the whole thing brought together with the Vegas steakhouse-inspired finish of Béarnaise sauce, rich with tarragon. On the side, homefries are pleasantly toothsome, including diced sweet red bell peppers in harmony with green ones.
In a Reuben omelet, corned beef is chopped to the size of bacon lardons and firmed up on the grill. Lots of melted Swiss is called for, and even 1000 Islands dressing fits right in.
French toast fries actually are deep-fried: tasty enough, but basically kid’s menu fare. Like any fried bread, oil absorption is an issue. Larger strips stay custardy in the middle, while smaller ones become crunchier and very oily.
The best thing about Jamm’s is its pot of bread. This is a yeasty, muffin-like bread puffed out like a dinner-roll popover. It’s available as a bread choice to accompany eggs, but a couple pots of bread and a cup of coffee would be a nice breakfast. One version is apple and Nutella, which includes one little chunk of apple and half a schmear of Nutella. Cinnamon-raisin is a good choice, but we like the plain white pot of bread best of all. The slightly sweet bread is good enough without any flavorings other than a dab of whipped butter.
