Great coffee and meals. Souvlaki is great with the home made taziki sauce. Whilst their menu needs an update their daily specials always providescan interesting alternative. No fancy interior but food and staff make up for the decor.

Service..... the young lady working there was straight over with a 'hello' and bottle of water the minute new customers walked in. The owner would leave the bar area and work the... More

My family and I come here quite often and the food and service is always exceptional. The menu is extensive and they do eggs better than any other cafe I know. With so much competition for the breakfast/ brunch/ lunch market in Newtown Lou Jack's is a stand out.

Been here a few times and the food and service is consistently good. Huge servings and good ingredients are used. I usually get the big breakfast which comes with Halumi and a wedge of lemon. Courtyard is charming.

We had lunch here today and the food was great and the coffee hit the spot. The haloumi was cooked to perfection and the Turkish bread was amazing.

Ok so I might be biased but I have been coming to Lou Jacks every morning for my coffee before work for the past ten years. I love supporting this local family business. The coffee is good and reliable and the food constantly fresh and available from breakfast through to lunch. A great spot to duck into to escape the... More
