This is not my first review of Jam Cafe because we have come here many times. It is a great asset to Cabbagetown - I just wish more people from the neighborhood patronized the place. We didn;t have a lot this time - just a...More

Almost perfect experience for me. Beautiful setting. I love the space! The waiter was very low key and friendly. He recommended a great wine to go with the Beef Bourguignon. He consulted the Sommalier when he wasn't sure about a question I had about a...More

This place used to be excellent, the service, the food, the wine, even the wine glass was perfect. It was a gem in the hood. I recommended it to all of my friends and they went. I had not been since last summer, as my...More

Don't be misled by the name: it's not a cafe, but a bistro, serving earthy, flavourful, well priced cuisine in a relaxed setting. It's a real treat to have this place in Cabbagetown, as it's the only bistro near Carlton and Parliament. They do delicious...More

We arrived at this small, bistro on the edge of Cabbagetown just after 8 on a Saturday, without a reservation and were relieved when we could get a table. We have been here several times before and all experiences were good, so thought it might...More

Found this place a few years ago when staying at a nearby b and b. I like the cozy atmosphere (tin ceilings, dark wood tables and booths), soft lighting and generally soft music, a nice contrast to places on nearby CHurch Street, most of which...More

Jam Cafe is a small restaurant with a small menu, excellent wine list and focusses on locally produced food (it names the key suppliers). The quality of the food is generally excellent (after two visits), although the elk buger was rather dry. Service is exceptionally...More

Last night I had the pleasure of dinning with friends at Jam cafe. The back patio offered shady dining on a warm spring evening. The menu is very interesting with an emphasis on local and organic. The food was great, the service excellent, and the...More

Small dining area, but well worth a visit. The menu is not large, but excellent dishes and not to be missed. What is really good, the menu changes frequently and a lot of thought is given to food types. The prices are reasonable, the only...More

Loved this place. It was a quiet Sunday night so they gave us some super comfy chairs in a very nice corner. The food was amazing! My husband had the applewood smoked pork --- genius! It was sooo good. We also had the fonduta -...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
