Even though we had to line up outside for an hour from 10:20-11:20 am on a Sunday, it was worth it for the excellent omelette. My friends had the breakfast skillet and the breakfast with poached eggs and apple sausage. Hubby and I both ordered...More

Well worth the wait, always a great spot for any number in your entourage. Be ready for a full belly. And lots of laughs. Just be patient, as good things come to those JAM.

Cheerful, but not particularly cheap ($15 Canadian for an omelette), Jam Cafe offers breakfast and lunch built around classic diner offerings - all day breakfast, plus salads and sandwiches for lunch -- you get the picture. The decor is early eclectic and this. place. is....More
