12 Heathcote Street, Hockley
Located along a quiet street in the Lace Market, Jam Café is easily missed, but once discovered will become a firm favourite. The menu ranges from all day breakfasts, such as boiled egg and soldiers at only £1.45, to snacks of homemade bread and humous, and an irresistible selection of soups, sandwiches and more filling meals. The laidback atmosphere makes it an ideal spot to study during the day, accompanied by a piece of blueberry pie and a white hot chocolate. Alternatively, if the thought of studying has become too much to bear, then why not while away a few hours watching the world go by and tucking into an item from the ‘Comfort Food’ menu. An open mic night each Wednesday and live DJs on a Thursday mean you can also pop along for dinner and entertainment. With great and affordable food, 10% student discounts, and a far better vibe than generic chain cafés, make sure you don’t overlook Jam Café next time you’re wondering where to go.
