I love Jamaica blue coffee and the staff at Charlestown always go above and beyond! I especially love the little touches, the little cookies on the side (with the coffee) is a small gesture, but sometimes it's the little things that make a big impact! :)

Conveniently located in Charlestown Square it is ideal for a coffee break while shopping. Coffee was well made and simple snacks are available.

Had a nice brunch at Jamaica Blue last week. The eggs, bacon and hash brown were cooked well and the atmosphere was inviting. Friendly staff, easy to find a seat and fast service. We were impressed.

My wife said one of her standout meals in Australia was her breakfast sandwich with haloumi cheese at Jamaica Blue. My yogurt parfait was lacking. My son tried fairy bread for the first time. An easy hit for him!

After waiting for 2 hot drinks to arrive and seeing 2 hot drinks come out and go back a waitress finally came up and asked our order. Upon being told we were told we had the wrong number by a waitress with big attitude. We did eventually get out drinks. We watched it happen to others as well so the... More

A nice stop for a coffee, 4 out of 5 coffees are good. The last one I had was very average. The food opitons are limited. But ok for what they are. Good location in the mall and staff are mostly friendly. You do generally wait a little longer than most places though.

Ok- so it's a public holiday but it's not THAT busy as it's nearly 4pm. Warned by staff that it's going to be 20min wait for coffee - I would hate to see how long it would take if they were genuinely busy. There are uncleared dirty tables (including ours) and old mate (presumably the franchisee) has plonked himself down... More

Jamaica Blue is a nice oasis in this big shopping centre. The snack choices are limited but good. The coffee is always good . Service is pleasant in this smallish coffee stop. the prices are very fair/ It is a regular stopping shopping place for us.
