As the title suggests this is the best fine dining restaurant in Townsville. It has a good quality degustation and al acarte menu. Inside is a bit tight to sit, but the staff are nice and welcoming. I would recommend this to people visiting Townsville.

The first time we went to Jam Corner for dinner it was fantastic. The last few times we have been there for breakfast it has been disappointing. I had the chorizo, bean and egg baked dish and it was very watery and not seasoned adequately. Also, the avocado on toast dish is just that, sliced avocado on toast. For a... More

Very nice breakfast, fresh ingredients, fast and friendly service. Make sure you go earlier for a breakfast, because by 8:40 it was starting to get really busy.

Nice atmosphere, great service, extensive menu, the best slow cooked beef I have ever had! Unfortunately the night was ruined when the meal that I was served and assured by the waitress that it was gluten free did in fact have gluten in it. It bought any otherwise great night out to an early close.

Excellent breakfast and professional service. I had the poached eggs with smoked salmon. The eggs were perfect and the toast was sensational. I haven't previously thought about how a good toast could change this dish.
