“z0mg, just burn this place down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have gone a few times, the place is just terrible, bad layout, crap food and largely clueless staff. I go to the record shop above them so I am continually reminded of them, I seriously would torch the place if it wouldn't ruin my fave record shop in town.

“Best place to just relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Great place to just relax and enjoy a fun night out with friends, they serve many kinds of beer and have a good selection of snacks. If you want to stay awake from the loud bars on King Street, then head out to Jane Bond. Perfect place!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

Vegetarian food that is so good it makes you wonder why you need meat in the first place. Small menu but everything is fresh and excellent. Nice beer list as well. Very friendly staff who are always happy to point out the special of the night, which is great because these are items that usually aren't on the menu which you have to try when available. In a word "GO".

“The Jane Bond is back! Great food again, wonderful staff, lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

As of 2010, I consider the Jane Bond back in action.

They added more entrée items back to their menu. They have a great veggie burger, some paninis, daily specials, wonderful soups, salads and an assortment of appetizers available.

If you were a fan of the Jane Bond several years ago and stopped going when they reduced their menu, try them again. You'll be pleased to find familiar faces in the staff, a more complete menu, food as tasty as ever, and your favourite cocktails on the menu.

Only open in the evenings, Tuesday to Saturday. It doesn't hurt to call ahead if you're going to travel in from out of town as they do occasionally close for an extra day or two after a summer long weekend, etc. Wouldn't you, if you could?
