We have visited Jamaica Blue a few times over the past few weeks. While we always enjoy the coffee, the meals are very overpriced. A breakfast bagel with bacon, eggs and haloumi was priced at $24. It is quite a nice atmosphere but we will not be visiting this restaurant regularly due to the cost of the meals.

We usually make the Coffee Club our place to enjoy a meal and coffee when travelling but having found this cafe on our recent holiday we much prefer it as it is situated in a good location within the air conditioned shopping centre. Menu is adequate although we only had coffee which was very good. Our friends always eat here... More

Two scrambled eggs and coffee for breakfast. Served cold and over cooked. No butter on the cold toast. Being in a rush didn't bother to send the food back. Lesson - go to The Coffee Club instead!!

How rude and unwelcoming are the staff here! Was constantly told to move my Bub in pram and was left feeling rather unwelcomed and that was just in the line for a simple T/A cappa. I regularly go mid week but went today with bub! Will not return staff was so rude and left thinking I can't stand anywhere without... More

It cost $19 for two slices of zucchini and some mint. An absolute joke. Biggest rip off ever. The service was ok. But when I complained about the size of the salad, they did not offer to put more on the plate. Ridiculous price for such a tiny salad.

We enjoyed one of their specialties...Sourdough crumpets with chocolate, berries and nuts. Yum! A great Breakfast or Lunch spot with a choice of lots of coffees and teas.

First time I have made the trek from one end of the shopping centre to the other, and it was well worth it. They have an amazing range of food as well to choose from for lunch and it would be hard to choose just one.

I find it really annoying that a meal is advertised as a "special" but doesn't give a price. And when you order it is way over priced. $24 for a sandwich with a couple of chips and a tiny average salad on the plate. I've always found Jamaica Blue to have good food and service but the food is way... More
