Square Meal Review of J & A Café ?

Cath Kidston herself would be hard pressed to create a more immediately endearing little eatery than J&A Café. If the idea of wild flowers in milk bottles, enamel mugs, jolly painted chairs and bunting strung across a quiet courtyard sounds twee, don't be put off: this place keeps a laid-back, urban edge that befits its off-Clerkenwell Road setting. The cooking and baking is wholesome stuff, based on good ingredients, so expect superior fry-ups with organic eggs and Clonakilty black pudding for breakfast, top-notch sandwiches at lunch, and stunning cakes for tea that your granny would be proud of (chocolate and Guinness with a dollop of thick cream sticks in the mind). Specials include a daily pie, tart, stew and soup. Drinkers have a choice of beers, Breton cider, a few wines and cocktails.

    The Edible Diary :: J+A Cafe

    In true American style, Sunday Brunch has become one of the hottest trends in London. Last weekend, we spent hours filtering through endless lists of “Best Brunch in London” and finally decided to try J+A Café in Clerkenwell. Tucked away in a small alleyway off Clerkenwell Road, J+A is spread over two floors of a warehouse style building, with a pleasant outdoor area, perfect for summer socialising. Upon arrival, we were directed upstairs and the 3 of us were sat at a long canteen style table with plastic chairs. The seating was reminiscent of a school canteen and the exposed brickwork created a cool, laid back vibe – perfect for a lazy Sunday Brunch...
