Cafe Jacko –

Reviewed by Karen – July 2014

The Place:

You can sit inside or outside.  This gorgeous cafe is smack bang in the middle of the cafe district and just a stone’s throw from all the shops.  There is lots of cabinet food or a full on breakfast, brunch or lunch menu.  You can have vegetarian or go gluten free.  The coffee is always great here and today was no exception.

The Service:

The service was great and friendly.  It always is here.

The presentation:

As you can see the dish was nicely presented, enough to tempt my taste buds.

  • The Benedict – good.  was really great.  Have been here a few times and they never fail to please.
  • The Muffins – well cooked, were good as ever.
  • The eggs – perfectly good.  Runny and Warm and Free Range as a FYI.
  • The Spinach – came as part of the dish and not a side.  The spinach was yummy.
  • The bacon – was great.
  • The hollandaise – homemade, thick and creamy without drowning the plate

Would we go again?

Yes, you can always expect to get great service and great food.


Style: Classic 7/10.  I like the way it automatically came with spinach.

Taste: 8/10.  The taste was yummy.

Originality: 5/10 – It’s the pretty standard selection of either Salmon or Bacon.

Value: 7/10.   It’s pretty reasonable here.  The Benedict is $17 and the Montreal is $18.

Eggs: (how good they were): 7/10. They were runny and warm.

Overall score: 7.5/10
