Jigger's Diner in East Greenwich, Rhode Island re-open ?
I heart that the Jigger's Diner is open again but only from Fridays to Sundays for breakfast and lunch. Is this right or is it also open on weekdays ?
145 Main St, East Greenwich, RI 02818
It's open only for breakfast and only Fri - Sun.
DON"T BOTHER. Stopped by yesterday for the first time in about a year. Very disappointed. Mediocre coffee at $2, two small crepe-sized soggy pancakes with a sparse helping of tasteless blueberries and so-called real maple syrup that had the color & consistency of the real thing, but NO maple flavor (tasted just like sugar). While sitting at the counter, I watched the short order cook serve up scrambled eggs simply by over cooking a thick omelet and using his spatula to break up the eggs with a few edgewise cuts. While the omelets were drawn thin, all seemed to be overcooked / brown on the surface.
For an excellent omelet, visit Ed's Roost and for pancakes, visit Audra's - both just down the road. There's no reason to stop at Jiggers, except perhaps for Johnny cakes and/or siting in a historical diner. Too bad, because up to last year, I'd considered them as having among the best pancakes.

While Johnney cakes are perhaps a unique RI treat, they are not something one tends too order too often. Jiggers is probably the still best place on the mid west bay (not sure of other places - never had them elsewhere).
I've never been, but Commons Lunch at 48 Commons Way in Little Compton, RI is often sited as serving excellent Johnny cakes (east bay).
