Went for breakfast with friends, ordered the Huevos Rancheros dish and it was super yummy! Fresh Jalapeno salsa at every table and all of us had more food than we could finish even though we went in super hungry. Excellent Brunch spot!

I've been here several times with friends and we always go early, when they first open to avoid any lineups. Be prepared to wait if you show later in the morning as this is a small restaurant. Portions are large and the food is great....More

Jam is my bf's favourite restaurant so decided to face the line today to give it a go. Based on online comments I was expecting a 15-20 minutes wait. We waited 45 minutes. People would leave and the line would not move. It wasn't until...More
