Not up to their usual standard

The atmosphere was nice and homely but the salad bar was very basic and tired. NOT AS GOOD AS LAST TIME WE visited

I a nice small cafe with friendly staff. Did find it a bit pricey tho. Nice and warm on a cold day. Also had trouble reading the menu board as there are tables in front of it and there were people sitting at them.

We arrived well into the afternoon and the management were preparing to close for a few hours, no problem though, in typical west coast style they were happy to sat us and served the most amazing chicken and bacon salad. We liked it so much we went back the next night for dinner.

Party of 10 celebrating their success at running the 2013 Art in the Park annual event. Venue small but comfortably accommodated us and 2 other similarly sized groups. Service great and friendly with no pressure to hurry us to order our meals. Main courses were very tasty although one person felt that the quantity of chicken in her dish was... More

Arrived here for evening meal and the place was reasonably full. We were shown to a table by the lovely hostess but the majority of the patrons that night were a group who allowed their kids to run wild. We ended up leaving as the noise level was much too great. Bit of a shame as this Cafe had been... More

Note - the picture on trip adviser for this establishment is incorrect (it showes Steamers), Jones's is much smaller. Four of us ate here and were not very impressed by the standard of the food, the veg appeared to be frozen (or maybe overcooked) and overall the result was average.

A spontaneous decision to eat out, with my husband, took us to Jones cafe. Full house, but we were told to return in 15 min, which we did after a drink at the hotel next door. Enjoyed a lovely meal in a softly lit, warm, music and laughter filled cafe. Excellent service. An intimate and satisfying night .

Upon reading the comment "too long in business" I find this an unusual comment as the company I work for prints the menus for Jones's Cafe and Bar which are changed twice a year...I visit this cafe once a month and eat lunch and most times dinner here, and find that the food is consistantly good and if you dont...
