Great hearty breakfasts. We used to make trips here before work and they really set you up for the day. Even the most simple dish is tasty and the slices of toast are thick, chunky and satisfying.


We have looked forward to trying j&a for ages – we live in clerkenwell – and went there with some visitors from India. It was appalling. We ordered salads which arrived with horrid dry couscous (one person is gluten-free), some wet leaves and two tomatoes for £10.50. The eggs benedict and the coffee were both cold. We were upstairs which is really tatty & cold with sticky tables. The door was hanging off the upstairs toilet and the main bathroom was dirty. Why would anyone go here when Workshop Coffee and Modern Pantry are round the corner.


I went for the first time today with a girlfriend and we had an amazing time, the food is delicious and fresh and the atmosphere is arty like garage/warehouse style, very original and not too pricey! I also love the area very peaceful and quiet but modern. I will definitely go again, it is one of my favourite places for lunch/ brunch !

I LOVE this place! I recently discovered this hidden gem with a friend and have returned many times since. The food has been delicious every time and the staff are very welcoming and helpful with their recommendations. It's refreshing to find a place that is not part of a chain and make all their food on site.
