“Great fresh food with generous portions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We visited JK's with friends and were pleasantly surprised. The tiny restaurant was packed. I highly recommend reserving a table if you are going with a group of more than 5. The prices are fantastic and the food is fresh, fast, and tasty.

“Needs To Up It's Game”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is quite a popular café that has been in Harpenden for three or four years and I tend to visit every three or four months out of convenience more than anything else. Whilst it is often quite busy I think it needs to up its game. The prices seem good value for money but this is offset by what appears to be cheap ingredients. This seems to apply particularly to the hot food. The all-day breakfast is spoilt by fatty bacon and rather flavourless sausages. My friend had the curry and felt it was rather bland. Whilst the tea is fine the coffee also seems below par. I think they need to find out who supplies TK’s in Southdown!

“Pretty basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Very normal coffee shop, some of the food quality is pretty basic. Ok if you just want plain, good value food.
