Food was very ordinary considering their reputation. Anyone can slice up a few different coloured cherry tomatoes, float them in a bit of tomato jelly and call it an entree. The terrine tasted like cat food smells....inedible. Main course was a raw (supposed to be rare) lamb chop and a pile of grey pulled lamb. Dessert was just OK. If... More

I had dinner with my husband and his work colleague a while ago. My husbands steak was had microwaved and not very good. My dinner was delicious and I enjoyed it very much. The wine was extremely expensive (lucky I don't drink alcohol). We wait staff were attentive but we did have to wait quite a while before our meals... More

Heard about this place from a local and it didn't disappoint for breakfast! Lovely service, found us a table outside on a rather busy morning. Excellent food and portion sizes you would expect. Good coffee. Will definitely visit again when next in fnq.

We ate at a ladies dinner function here last night - it was absolutely terrible. The food was awful including a seafood terrine that less than half of the people at the table ate. Even the seafood lovers said it had a really 'fishy' taste and they didn't like it. The lamb cutlets served for main meal were almost raw.... More

Fresh and tasty with large size serves, we will return occasionally. Excellent creamy coffee with actual mugs even if a little small, available. One of the best coffees in Townsville in our view.The prices are slightly more than others but is acceptable for an occasional treat. A surcharge on using a Visa card was the only real negative we found.... More

We don't normally go out for breakfast, however we had stayed the night in Townsville and had an early start on a Friday morning. We had looked at the menu the night before and were both keen to try it. It has a great atmosphere, nice decor and most importantly, beautiful food. They have won numerous breakfast awards. Would highly... More

We had the gingerbread pancake with salted caramel icecream and roasted pinneapple for breakfast and we liked it so much we came back another morning and had it again. What a pleasant experience this was, the coffee was excellent and service was very good even though they were quite busy. We had coffee there a few times and their muffins... More

I had breakfast at Jam Corner , great decor and nice ambience about this restaurant, however I think it maybe noisy if busy. The breakfast risotto was to die for , coffee was fantastic. The service I would only give a 7/10 a little slow considering it was not busy and at a restaurant of this quality I prefer one... More
