Jackson Soul Food is an Overtown institution. As the name implies, they’re known for soul food - but they’re only open until 2pm during the week and 5pm on weekends, so people usually come here for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. They’ve got a big selection of simple breakfast dishes like eggs and sausage, pancakes, and some breakfast sandwiches. But one of the best things you can get here is their fried catfish, which works just fantastically as a brunch dish, especially if you get a few eggs and bacon on the side.
