“Step away from the corporate and try something real.”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Take a few steps of the well worn trail and you often come across some fabulous little gems. Just such a place is Jam Jam. Having just reopened for the start of the 2014 season, we were incredibly lucky that Elsie decided to open up yesterday. Having purposefully made the very small off piste venture from the high street we can only describe this as a little bit of heaven.

Step inside, choose your own tune, if there isn't one already playing (lucky for me Paul Simon's Graceland was on the record, YEP, Real vinyl too). Sit on the one of the box benches, around the single table. Partake in a conversation or several and enjoy a real coffee and lovely atmosphere. Prices are stupendously good value. Cakes are Home Made, with none of the chemical filled crap that other "chain" coffee places try to poison us with.

It was an hour of relaxation and good chats. No Wi-Fi, but none was required. Why would you spend £6 quid on a couple of mediocre coffees, when for the sake of 2 minutes walk, you can spend £4, on a delish latte. Support a local business, enjoy the vibe. You'll love it, we did and we'll be back.

Delicious fresh food and coffee/drinks, really well priced, nice atmosphere with the vinyls playing and super friendly staff. A hidden gem in Newquay.
