After a long drive to Newquay this was our first stop and the best food of the trip. So simple but delicious.

A quirky little gem opposite Sainsbury's supermarket, easily overlooked but worth searching out. Tiny space inside, but great selection of goodies. Today you could choose between Bounty, Turkish Delight, Mars or Salted Caramel milkshakes; plumped for the salted caramel and it was delicious. The scrummy looking cakes are all made by the girls who run this and you would find it hard to find a warmer welcome anywhere. Cool music playing on the record deck, a selection of filled croissants and bagels. Opted for the chorizo, mozzarella, tomato and rocket this time and it was wonderful. Definitely a place to visit regularly.

We found Jam Jar after checking Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed.
The welcome and the food were excellent - we all went back for more!
A great little place with really fresh food and delicious milk shakes too!
The Quirky design really works to create a lovely chilled atmosphere in the chaos of Newquay!

The best home made baking you're likely to taste. Wonderfully healthy food based on a quirky "jam jar" concept. Tucked away from Newquays tourist scene this place this is a real gem. Whether it's a morning snack or a lunchtime treat this place is a must. I've been a number of times during visits to newquay and we've yet to be disappointed. Puts all other cafés to shame

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!!!
