Cafe Jacko has an attractive and tasty choice of savoury meals, and good coffee too, with very reasonable prices. Service is friendly and quick, ideal for a lunch between engagements. Easy parking close by.

My wife and I took a couple of our grandchildren out for Sunday breakfasting weren't disappointed. We both had Eggs Bennie, while grand-daughter had the pancakes , and grandson had a filled roll. We all agreed the food was great, and the coffee was excellent. Service was quick, and with a smile. Recommended.
