Can't wait to try the degustation menu

Turned up without a reservation and were greeted with incredibly friendly and welcoming staff. Service was amazing all night although a little too attentive at times as we were asked many times by different staff members if everything was ok. Not really a fault but they can relax a bit and need to... read more

Had breakfast here with a group of work colleagues recently, and found it very disappointing. We got there pretty early, the place quickly filled up, and we had a very long wait (about an hour) before the food arrived. Personally I found the menu somewhat fussy, needed some simple basic breakfast items. I ordered sausages with poached eggs - specifically... More

We recently celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary by returning to the Jam Corner where we held our reception 12 months earlier. On our wedding evening Matt and the team were very flexible in ensuring our day was customised to our desires. The food and service was nothing short of outstanding and guests still comment to this day on the reception.... More

Service here is excellent, an English MaitreD who talks and involves all, which is rare in Townsville. Food is very good, pate a delight, and desserts to die for ( definitely leave room for pure decadence). Ambiance can be touch and go..outside seating but on a busy street corner. Nice private function areas if you want to hold a small... More

This is an awesome team, with my food allergies ( Gluten, Lactose, Potatoes) they were just brilliant in making me a meal which was just excellent. They went out of their way to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Just exceeded my expectations. During my stay in Townsville all my meals were at Jam Corner. My home away from home!

I found this place near where I was staying for business for breakfast. It had a lovely buzz in the morning and I have to say that the avocado with salmon and poached egg was a real treat. It's a shame that it's not overlooking the Port area, but a busy road, but it still has a lovely ambiance with... More

I have been for breakfast, lunch and dinner a few times and it never fails to be a good meal. Sometimes it is missing a little ambiance but it more than makes up in deliciousness. One of my favourite restaurants in Townsville.

Great food with amazing atmosphere. Excellent coffee, one of the best in town! Went there with a group for work and everyone really enjoyed their meals (including the fussy ones). Rate this place!

Jam Corner really stood out for us with a modern, fresh menu that offered something different. Great food at a reasonable price!
