Disappointed for a number of reasons

Disappointed as we were strongly encouraged to sit outside (as cleaning was taking place inside), salad portion was very small and we were over charged (supposedly a till error) on the bill (when raised with staff, money was refunded but with no apology).

Really nice sunny place with lots of room- great brunch on a lazy sunday. We took our friends for brunch and spent over 3 hours.. fresh juices and well made eggs.

I went there for a quick drink with my mum and was astonished to find the bloody mary so darn good. It was a pretty big glass of bloody mary as well. I would definitely like to go back there to try our their food.

awesome wagyu beef burger! we ordered it well done, as my friend didn't like bloody beef. thought it'd have been hard and dry, but turned out awesome! the slight charred taste of the patty went really well with bacon and caramelised onion, and the patty was real juicy. service was good too, but the temperature in the restaurant was a...

Food was a tad pricy I feel for what it serves but tastes good. Was not impressed with the dessert. Had... More

From the minute we arrived we didn't feel welcome and unfortunately the service did not improve. We enjoyed the food and its a lovely location but this is the 3rd time we've left unhappy with the service so we certainly won't return

The breakfasts here were tasty and the surroundings are nice. The seating outside is a bit hot but I did enjoy dining outside. The breakfast was quite expensive at around $30 for breakfast with a drink, but it was a tasty breakfast. Service was a bit slow, but we were seating at the furthest table away.

This is the first time back to Jones for a few months.... I am sad to say that the quality of the cooked breakfast has dropped even further😞 all the eggs toast bacon and roast tomato's are pre cooked and reheated when you order... This is just pure laziness and I would be recommending to friends and guests not to... More

What a strange place Dempsey Hill is! We sat outside and had a pleasant lunch although the service was a bit haphazard. A nice enough place but not really worth travelling out of town for.

Dempsey Hill, a former military barracks, is today a heaven for foodies. There are cafes galore but we opted for Jones the Grocer for a coffee and breakfast. We weren't disappointed. Far more for the expat market than travellers but homesick tourists will get their fill of the usual Aussie brunch deals and be able to buy a few treats... More
