Upon arrival we were impressed with the decor and ambiance and were greeted by the staff and seated.

This quirky little haven has to be one of Nottingham's most vibrant venues. Reminiscent of a continental bistro, Jamcafe has a wonderfully chilled-out atmosphere and an infectious buzz. Your expectations, whether of a relaxed brunch, refreshing afternoon bite or gourmet evening meal, will be exceeded. We sat down and perused a mouth-watering, reasonably priced and refreshingly concise seasonal menu, which... More

We went there and we're both disappointed. The porridge was served cold and the hollandaise was very tart. Cheap but not worth it.

Went as specifically as was looking for somewhere that advertised a good brunch. Very disappointed. Staff friendly and nice environment but took nearly an hour to receive 4 cooked breakfasts that bore little relationship to those generous well presented meals advertised on website. Brunch became lunch. The plates were cold and my wifes scrambled egg missing. Food was not hot.... More

Often drop by here; Bradley and his staff have made an excellent job, good straightforward food (loved the breakfast the other day) and innovative choice in beers.

We were greated by a very helpful and friendly gentleman who discussed the menu options with us and provided drinks very quickly. If the food had lived up to his promotion everything would have been excellent. However, the vegetarian option consisted of half a potato in some stock (tasted like chicken) with a few roasted parsnip shavings on top. Having... More

It is small but has a warm friendly vibe. It's also a great place for hearing bands and local talent as well as a great stop for a hot chocolate and a chat on a cold night.

We were exploring the area looking for a quaint cafe to have a quick drink in and catch up on some work. This was our first time in Jamcafe, and we were warmly greeted by the guy who would later ask us what we'd like. After a delicious Hot Chocolate and Tea, after the brunch menu catching our eye, we...
