Location and contact

Our glass-fronted JQ emporium is light, airy and offers incredible coffee, soft drinks and delicious cakes, an all day brunch menu and a full lunch menu. Add to that plenty of seating, free wi-fi and we like to think you've got the perfect pit-stop or hang-out in the up and coming Jewellery Quarter. We're licensed too, do awesome Sunday Roasts and do take away coffees, brunch & lunch!

Visit for a brunch a cold Sunday in December after roaming the Jewellery quarter. Fantastic coffee with diary substitute options and the sour dough with the breakfast was some of the nicest I have had for a long time.

We popped in for lunch and thought it was extremely average for the price. It was quick though and the coffee was ok.

We thought we'd drop in here after a trip round the Jewellery Quarter as I'd previously visited the Urban Coffee Company near St Pauls Square. Looks nice from the outside but I was pretty disappointed. Metal chairs and plywood tables with an unpractical leg in...More
