Nice cafe with good food and coffee but I'd tend to agree with the comments of the last three reviewers about the staff. Lovely cakes. Easy to get parked outside.

We joined my cousin, who works at the university, for lunch here. She often has lunch here as it is very convenient for her. The food was very good but counter staff were not exactly welcoming, which was a pity as this could be a really great place.

Been told about the lovely cafe, which it was, had a great breakfast, coffee & slice, the staff need to know a smile goes a long way, and makes all the difference when dealing with the public.

A weekend brunch at a cafe we have been meaning to visit for ages. Food was perfectly adequate, arrived nice and hot and in a timely manner, just there wasn't an wow factor.

Jack's has everything one would want in a decent cafe, plus having a kitchen able to prepare fresh meals is an added bonus. Would definitely recommend Jack's to anyone looking for decent coffee, delicious food, and an inviting atmosphere to enjoy it in!

The coffee was excellent. The food was as good as it should be but wasn't outstanding. Nice venue to catch up with friends

A great place to go for brunch or lunch with a reasonably full menu plus counter foor. They have some covered outdoor seating for people who like the take in the local air plus many tables (after expanding into the shop next door a few years back). I'd recommend the caesar salad but there are many other fine meals on... More
