Jack’s is an American style diner in Queen’s Park. It is causal and relaxed. At busy times, the tables are shared – it is a good place to visit when catching up with friends. It is predominantly a breakfast and lunch place, but they also serve dinner and alcohol. The menu is extensive, and the selection of food is quite broad – from fried breakfasts to omelettes, salads to burgers.
We visited Jack’s for lunch one Saturday afternoon. The queue can be fairly large, but it doesn’t take too long to get a table. They do an early bird deal, check the website for details. The breakfasts are served all day. We had two dishes: the ‘Yankee’ – French toast (or pancakes) with poached eggs, vegetarian sausage and maple syrup. We also had the three egg omelette (cheese and mushroom) with fries and sourdough toast. All breakfast dishes are served with complimentary bottomless tea and coffee.
The food is homely and unpretentious, and the prices are reasonable. Service is fast and the staff are efficient. My only gripe is that the fried food could on occasion be cooked in cleaner oil. Definitely worth a visit, however, if you’re in the area or visiting the park – there are plenty of options for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
Bill for 2 people:
1 x Yankee = £9.00
1 x Omelette = £9.00
TOTAL BILL = £18.00
