Visited several times when the weather's not been great (you sit at the back or downstairs, so definitely an indoor place). Cheap, cheerful, big breakfasts. Bottomless coffee or juice. Rather reminds me of being in America. Note: it's usually fairly quick turnaround even with a queue. I would personally only sit upstairs. as the basement (by the loos) doesn't have... More

Shocked to see the good reviews. Food was fine but nothing special and the waiters were incredibly rude. It was very busy so I guess that made them stressed out, but it was still unacceptable

I love visiting Jack’s on a weekend. The service is very friendly, especially the Australian waitress who is always very pleasant. You very often have to queue but the breakfasts with a free bottomless tea or coffee are well worth the wait. My boyfriend usually has a double breakfast but I can only ever manage a single as the portions... More

Simple English/American breakfasts. Large portions but nothing spectacular. Also wasn't blown away by the coffee. That being said Jack's is certainly better than a pub.

Popped in for a late lunch so no problem getting a seat. Had a really satisfying and tasty burger, and benefitted from the lovely smell of the all day breakfast being delivered to other diners.

The cooked breakfast here is to die for, or when you feel like you're dying (hangover) go here! Clean and tidy cafe, with friendly staff that over deliver on great food! Well worth a visit :)

The breakfast I had was very nice, my friend struggled a bit on the gluten free options and opted for a salad which lacked a bit in non leaf toppings. The price was also very reasonable. The main problem was that they packed in far too many people. As a result, the waitors kept forgetting parts of our order and... More

Delicious food and the staff are always polite and accommodating. I went off menu for my last meal there and they couldn't have been happier to help me out. The food is always great, the coffee delicious and the smoothies are very tasty too! Only slight downside is how close the tables are together, but they have to do that... More
