After reading some good reviews we decided to try this place, my husband had a standard white coffee while my son and I had milkshakes (banoffee for him and ginger snap for me) and a piece of chocolate brownie. The brownie was easily the best I've ever had! The jam jar is definitely quirky in a comforting way... Loved the vinyl playing in the background and the relaxed atmosphere. A really good find!!!

Popped in for morning coffee, fantastic decaf iced mocha with a big dollop of ice cream in! Had a blueberry frangipani cake and white choc brownie both delicious! My friends loved their iced drinks too weather was fantastic so drinks were great on a hot day. Will definitely return when back in Newquay. Thanks jam jar

Tiny little place with a heap of character just opposite sainsburys. Went for a granola jar and an iced coffee was lovely just to sit for a bit an relax. Had a lovely chat with one of the owners who was really welcoming and friendly. Vinyl records playing and most things served in jars which is a cute little touch. Really tasty and cheaper than most other places in the area.

Being tiny and humble is The Jam Jar's USP. Any bigger and you would lose the wonderful sense of popping round to see a friend. Imaginative, rustic and comforting, it's also like being in a tree house where you can snuggle up inside or perch outside on a blanket covered bench and watch the world go by.
Fabulous coffee. It's "Origin", of course, and they know how to make it better than the ever increasing number of serving staff in cafes with "Barista" emblazoned across their shirts, who wouldn't know a decent cup of coffee from a cup of Bovril.
Jess bakes the most amazing goodies fresh every day, most of which are gluten free and made with care using ingredients which may actually do you some good! Having said that, her cakes are still fabulously sinful.
Listen to vinyl while you relax and look out for special events over the summer.

Just goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune on props and branding to create a really special coffee (tree) house.
