“Love it here, one of Nottingham's little secrets.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Glad to see a larger menu make a welcome return, I imagine it's a small kitchen here as it's only a tiny place, but the loss of the big menu was a sad one earlier this year. Top notch food.
Excellent sandwiches and salads, boyfriend was also crazy over a duck cassoulet(?) he had there once.

Small bar, but good cannon of beers. Always an interesting Belgian on offer. Taras Boulba, last time. Not seen that outside of Belgium.

Staff are always lovely, can't do enough for you. Can get a bit warm at times, which is its only downfall.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Amazing vibe, top food menu, incredible drink selection, superb music, bohemian, funky and chilled all at the same time.

Check out the top film and music quiz on Thursdays, the week long evening music events, or just gorge on delicious pizza or any number of delicious mains.

Or simply relax with a coffee and take in all the music and film memorabilia.

Unbeatable.

“This is not cafe food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

...this is the food of a beyond aspirational restaurant that's got a forking music thing going on. I'm pretty sure that any scene that dare call itself 'vibrant' or 'eclectic' would reference a place like this, right down to the LCD showing a Ghibli film near some Sales furniture. And that food....

“My favourite place to lunch in Nottingham!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I love everything about the Jam Cafe. It has got this cosy and laid-back atmosphere, and it does serve beautiful, delicious food. I go there every once in a while, and always look forward to the next time.

“Best night out in Nottingham!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Saw DJ ex friendly here last week. Good food, fantastic music, friendly staff, quirky & cool! Incredible atmosphere at night. Not sure how I ever managed without it. Where have you been all my life, Jam Cafe? Best night out I've had in years!
