Cool place for brunch

We visited the Jam Cafe for Sunday brunch and the food was great, their home-made beans and the sauce they cook their mushroom in were highlights. The toast was slightly dry and the food took quite a while to come out but that's being really picky and it was certainly worth the wait. They make a... read more

Perfectly situated on a sunny Heathcote Street but away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping areas, Jam Cafe is a music themed eatery with an outside seating area - perfect for enjoying the sunshine. Lunch was absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a lighter lunch but doesn't want a salad. The interior is... More

Kept meaning to log in and leave a review for the team at Jamcafe. Such a lovely friendly bunch. The food they serve is always amazing and the drinks choice is ever changing always getting me trying something new.

I love this place. Every time I come home to Nottingham I try to pop in. The food sometimes takes a while to come out but it's great quality, fantastic value, home cooked food that I can never fault. Good coffee, great beers and the atmosphere is always great, the staff are always helpful, the live music nights are always... More

Super little spot to have a Sunday breakfast. Kids loved it. Great food and lovely staff. The atmosphere was fun a little boho chic with music playing throughout. Large portion sizes and great value for money.

I love Jam Cafe for a night out, the music's good, the atmosphere is really friendly and the staff are lovely. I haven't eaten there yet but I've heard really good things about the food from my friends who have.

We visited on a Saturday night and had an excellent meal, the menu is small but the food was well cooked and very tasty. The service was excellent and we still had table service when we stayed for the entertainment and "nightclub" element of the evening. The DJ's lugged in their music in large boxes; old school here! all vinyl,... More

I came across this place by chance when a friend was playing a gig. It is intimate and very friendly - the sort of place you could go to on your own without feeling daft. Staff are lovely and although I didn't eat, the food other people were eating loooked pretty good I have to say. There is a chalk... More

Had their hanger steak and it was quite simply the best steak I've had in years and was cooked to perfection. Great service and atmosphere. IF you don't go for food then you can always pop in later as the night time entertainment that is put on is always top stuff. Paul Mason-Smith, age 29.
