Yummy!

Have always loved Jackies. It's beautiful to sit outside, especially in summer. The food is delicious and great quality - try the ravioli and the teriyaki chicken! My only complaint would be the price. The sushi is exorbitantly expensive for the amount of sushi you get... but I guess you pay for... read more

Jackies is a quaint little cafe located just of the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street in Glenmore Road, Paddington. It's nestled in amongst the designer fashion and homeware stores and seems to attract the trendy and beautiful crowd of the local area. Food was great, especially the sashimi salad. The service was very rushed and we certainly got a... More

Nice place for a quick lunch on the outside terrace. Cool local crowd. Prefer for a stop after a shopping trip. Probably the best place in Paddington district

The moment I arrived with a pram, the staff were dismissive. Food took a long time to arrive. Staff seemed incompetent as they got confused about my order on two occasions. To top it all off they overcharged me, but I could not bother complaining - I was just happy to leave.

Title sums it up. I've never had baguettes this good in Sydney - crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle. I need the name of their supplier!

Off the main street Jackie´s Café is a nice spot to enjoy a fresh yummie lunch. They serve either Sushi or delicious pasta. The crowd is rather cool and trendy. Service is very attentive. Try the pumpkin ravioli with pine nuts and mushrooms! We`ve been there twice lately - always happy.

We stumbled on this little cafe whilst ambling about Paddington. The atmosphere was friendly on this Thursday morning, pleasantly busy in the outdoor courtyard or plenty of space indoors. But the real treat was the excellent latte. How can anyone complain? It was amazing value at A$8 for two of the best. We did not eat but the food looked... More
