Had a marvellous Asian omelette for breakfast whilst in Townsville on business. Very popular by the number of folks in there at 730am. Very good service and terrific coffee. Highly recommended.

Fantastic food - I'm fortunate to stay in a hotel very close by and have had breakfast here numerous times. Interesting menu with plenty of appealing options. Good coffee and nice decor. Always friendly service.

Place was packed for a Saturday and we were asked to wait in bar area whilst a table was organised. I thought I would be daring and have a long black, always a giveaway on the quality of coffee.

We've only been here for lunch once but it was very nice. Good customer service, great choice on the menu and a really economical lunch menu to chose from too. Would recommend it.

My Wife, our Son, his Wife and I dined here for dinner and enjoyed the degustation with matching wines. Degustation is a tasting option, so your not getting the full meal, its the best way to explore a menu. Everyone knows about the breakfast here at Jam, but the dinner is amazing as well. On our "Must Do" again list.

The menu is seasonal, so if you like something once, you may not necessarily get it again. It was good food. I would have liked more of it. I was presented with style, tasted amazing and the service by the waiters was excellent.

The food is very tasty and the customer service was really great. So nice to receive good service, sometimes I find it hard to find in Australia and it is such an important part for all business.

I had breakfast at Jam this morning, the hotel I was staying at recommend it. I had a coffee, orange juice and breakfast. It was a nice meal. I would recommend going here for breakfast, I cannot comment on lunch or dinner as I have not experienced that, but based in breakfast I think it would be good.
