The new location for Cafe Jam has done wonders for the business. Not that the business wasn’t booming before, but the much larger, natural-light filled space plus a sunlit atrium has created a warm and welcoming cafe that any shopper to Bridgepoint will find hard to resist. Although I have passed by Cafe Jam at least once a week for several years I have never noticed the scones in the cabinet (maybe they weren’t there!). However, in this new location the bundle of scones are easily spotted from the walkway. The large, fresh and tasty scone is a surprise. A friend who had visited previously doesn’t rate them, but I think the scone is better than average and tastes better, than which it looks. The commercial raspberry jam is better than average, but before the waiter has a chance to put the jam on my table I send him away for more. Whether it’s Bourke or Mosman, surely diners prefer ‘real’ cream with their scone rather than a ‘synthetic’ cream? This one is straight from a can and in one word – terrible. Lastly, this is a small gripe, but a few tea cups would go down a treat, I’m not a fan of the super thick coffee cups for my tea.
Tea: A basic selection of Twining tea bags served in a teapot.
Overall: A bright and cheery cafe on the quieter top level of the shopping centre.
