We had dinner at Jam on a Saturday night. The restaurant was full but the service and food were excellent. A good mixture of flavours using fresh local produce. Having come from Sydney the prices seemed reasonable as well. Highly recommended.

Have been here a few times for Breakfast while being in Townsville for business. Great selection and very nice presented. Tastes very good and therefore a great start into the day. Staff very friendly. Can be busy so sitting outside can be difficult.

Get there early as although the restaurant is quite large it fills up quickly around 7:30. The food is excellent and service is very good too. Their Bircher muesli is fantastic.
