The food is good and service is OK. I personally didn't like the menu as There is no price on the menu and it was a shock for me when I paid the bill.No choice splitting of Bill either. Cost me twice as much compared to other places. Overall very expensive and not my cup of tea.

We attended Jackies with friends for breakfast. The food was average - nothing amazing. Our issues arose when they presented us with the bill... which included a "Saturday Surcharge" of $8!!! On what grounds can they justify such a surcharge?! I shudder to think what they do on public holidays... And they wouldn't allow us to split the bill...instead telling... More

Nice friendly staff, really nice food (especially the scrambled eggs) and a local footie star to boot. The fresh bottled smoothies & juices were very nice.

Wow what a great breakfast! Jackie's is just off Oxford street in Paddington, hidden amongst all the fab clothes shops. There is a lovely outdoor area but it was full on a cold Sydney Saturday morning so we headed inside which was still nice. I am tough on my breakfasts but this was the best one I have had in...

I've eaten here twice now and both times I've left feeling a bit annoyed. The food is a little formulaic and thin on the ground. But the bigger problem is the staff who seem cold, unapproachable and indifferent to their customers. Get a grip people you're working in a service industry!!! Try smiling perhaps? Won't be coming here again.

We stopped for tea and coffee and I had the blueberry and ricotta muffin which was absolutely gorgeous. Ask for it warmed up!

Jackie's cafe was one of my favourite cafes, but having returned there after some years I was really disappointed with the experience. The food is good, but overpriced, and service is good enough. But adding a weekend surcharge is an archaic practice that has been phased out a long time ago, given the numerous viable alternatives. Being told "we don't... More
