I lived next to Jack's in Walton Street for a year and I used to be there for both lunch and dinner sometimes!!
Loved the food: Simple and tasty. Friendly service and outstanding location.

If you are in London you need to go there once and try as well the crowded Jak's bar just next to it.. you'll feel like you are in a house party!!

Thanks Val

This is such a RARE place to find. A cafe/restaurant that has the PERFECT menu for those who care about their body, as well as delicious things for the fat, greedy friend, or the friend who feels like a delicious piece of cáke too.

So firstly they have a brilliant juicing machine, and none of this fruit smoothie 'healthy' nonsense. They have carrots, betroots, ginger and apples beside the juicing machine - ie, all the things that you SHOULD have in your fresh juice ever day.

And they know how to mix the ingredients properly to make the vegetable juice still taste delicious.

Then they have the most amazing selection of healthy foods to choose from. And all ready, so that you can order and eat immediately - either take away or at one of their lovely tables.

You can have grilled white fish, salmon, chicken, amazing salads, lasagne, pasta, in fact there is always something for everyone regardless of what eating plan they are on.

In addition, they have lovely helpful staff, a great coffee machine and a lovely tea selection.

And best of all, they have the most amazingly delicious cake selection should you fancy something sweet. Or you can just buy a small bar of plain dark chocolate of it's a healthy sweet you're after!

Really, they thought of everything. I love this place.

I've been to the cafe a few times whenever I'm staying in London. The service is always friendly and attentive. The food has always been excellent and I would say that the lasagne and cheesecake are the best I've ever tasted. I've introduced all my friends to the restaurant and it seems they know the staff better than I do. Looking forward to going back on my next visit to London.

Jaks cafe is probably the best place to go and eat in London. Everytime I have been the staff have been excellent and always made my family feel welcome and special. Whilst it serves many meat dishes I would say it is excellent for anyone looking for a decent vegetarian place as the choice is so varied.
Yes the place is popular and gets busy but there is a reason for that. Jaks is the best around. If the cafe is too busy the staff are more than happy to have your food taken to his bar 3 doors down where you can eat and relax.
The food is always fresh and very tasty. It's also great for takeaway and I've seen people come in and order for a dinner party wanting to pass it off as their own home cooked food. Portion sizes are on the 'hearty' size and good value as my wife always seems to take half home for her lunch the next day!
Best thing to do is to go and try it yourself you won't be disappointed.

This small place offers great home-made food. The concept is the following: all the food is exposed as in a traiteur, you choose a main dish and then as many side dishes as you want. What has to be warmed up will be. There is a basic price for the dish with 2 side dishes (I think) and then the price increases with the numer of side dishes. We usually pay arounf £15pp.

My personal favourites: the salmon filet, sautéed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, parsley taboulet. Other great choices: the tuna steak, the lasagna..and many others.

Jak's also offers great fruint and vergetable to create your juice. Be creative!

Unfortunately, the word is out one the streets and it is now overcrowded, service is not as attentive and as nice as it used to, and it is far too noisy. Not as enjoyable as it was, it now rather stressful on weekend days.
