£22 quid for 2 small breakfasts, served cold at first, 1 poor instant? coffee, 1 weak tea and some sausage and beans for the child. Not good value at all. Place needs a makeover and some heating first before charging these prices.

Not worth a visit. Service is ridiculously slow. Food came out wrong and when asked to fix it they just picked off the things we had not wanted on our food! Totally unhelpful. Plenty of much better places!!

I visited Cafe Jacques on Saturday morning and to begin with it was a pleasant experience to relax and enjoy a coffee. When my partner and 2 year old joined me we ordered a couple sausage rolls and a kids breakfast, I asked for simply a piece of toast and beans with a sausage for the kids meal. The food... More

Terrible "grub" - I couldn't even class this as food. Asked for a dish with no cheese due to allergies... Dish was brought out with flecks of cheese in it- inquired as to the no cheese request and the response " chef put it on and we picked it off"! Really not worth the effort of sitting down in the...

Felt I had to review after reading the mix of reviews. Went for breakfast and it was just fine, nothing bad nothing mind blowing, just breakfast! (Not sure what some people expect from breakfast?!) My partner had a bacon baguette- he said the bread was very nice. I had French toast with bacon and maple syrup, it was great. The... More

This is a very small but extremely quaint shop. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was friendly. Wish I had gone back for a second meal!

We dropped in here for a quick drink, soup and a roll. Nothing too demanding I would have thought. The soup was insubstantial coloured water, tasted disgusting and was inedible. A complaint to the waitress was met with a muted, unconcerned "sorry". The bill was paid in full as she took away the full bowl of orange/yellow slop. I wonder... More
