“Very tasty food and great decor!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Jam Cafe came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint. Was busy at lunch and had to wait for about 15 minutes but was worth the wait! Very unique menu options and sizeable, tasty servings! Nice to see a Victoria restaurant that is so unique and doing so well!

“Mmmmm breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I visit Jam every few months. We visited it first just shortly after it opened and were delighted to see dessert like breakfast items. What fun! I'm a big fan of Heuvos Rancheros so that is usually what I get and they are very happy to make it vegetarian for me. My boyfriend has had the pull pork pancakes and the nutella french toast (forget the name of it) and the meals have been large, well worth the money and delicious! The service is always fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect. Number #1 place to have breakfast in Victoria.

“#1 for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

waited for a long time outside before sitting down to eat...food was very well done...small details given attention....creative menu and super tasty food. This place lived up to the hype. I left happy. Go across the street to get a cup of coffee while you wait. Loved this place.

“Great breakfast with fabulous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We arrived at 8:30am for breakfast and had to wait about 10mins for a table which was entirely acceptable given the popularity of this place. When we left there was a queue of about 10 people outside.
The service was fast, friendly and efficient and the breakfast was outstanding. We all tried different things and everything was great. The food takes a while to arrive but it's a busy place and when it arrives it is beautifully presented and well worth the wait. We're going back again today !!!
