We stopped here for a coffee and drinks one morning whilst waiting to go on the dolphin watch cruise. The service was disappointing to say the least, and took so long to get our drinks that we almost missed the boat - we had allowed 50 minutes. Did not return to try anything else for the rest of the holiday.

My wife and I recently had breakfast at Chilli Jam on a sunny winters morning. I had the big breakfast option and my wife had the fritters. The coffee, food and service were all good and I will certainly go back again. PS the prices are quite reasonable as well.

My family and myself went to Chilli Jam in Forster yesterday for morning tea/lunch and all of us were extremely disappointed in what we received both in service and food.

I was disappointed with the quality of the food and the coffee neither my mum or I could finish the coffee as it was bitter and tasted burnt and the date scone was very dry and dense in texture.

Popped in here for a coffee and eggs on toast with my family and had some great juices and the coffee was well above average for this part of the world where hot and wet ..... It doesn't win any awards but with Good clean decor and responsive staff it won't be a waste of money...

We had a fabulous brekkie here today! They advised us of a wait time but it was well worth waiting for.

Interesting and varied menu. Mainly Japanese in character with a twist. Our selections for three were varied in nature, all nicely presented and tasty. The four scallops were tatsy but expensive

We dropped in for lunch and found the menu very limited. You had a choice of burgers, melts, bruschetta, wraps and a few salads. I ordered the chicken and salad wrap and my husband the salad wrap. I asked to have some chilli jam in it and that cost 50cents extra. The wraps came quickly and were fresh and tasty.... More
