I recently visited Jam Cafe and was thoroughly impressed. Upon entry, my party and I were greeted by genuinely pleasant and happy staff. Although extremely busy with a full restaurant, we were talked to immediately and assured of seating in a short time. We sat at the long wooden bar and I admired the pioneer-chic deco and delicious savoury smells wafting out of the kitchen. We all ordered caesars and much to my delight, they were garnished with a piece of candied bacon and pickled asparagus. After being sat in the window seat (score!) we all ordered the huevos rancheros. Surprise Surprise. This was one of the best huevos rancheros I’ve tasted yet. The guacamole was fresh and flavourful with large chunks of avocado and tomato and freshly squeezed lime juice. The black beans were equally as delicious and plentiful. I loved the chorizo sausage on the side, and the corn bread tasted like it was made seconds before it hit my plate.
For dessert, we all had a round of mimosas to toast the birthday boy, and those too were wonderful, both in flavour and aesthetic. Our server was friendly and down-to-earth. She happily dealt with all of our intricate modifiers to our meals and seemed to genuinely enjoy our business.
Price wise, the meal was affordable and priced appropriately. I was very pleased when my cheque came.
I can not stop dreaming of my amazing meal and incredible beverages. My next brunch out, I will be returning directly to Jam Cafe with an even larger cohort.
Until next time!
