The outside coffee tables give a great ambience to this conventional coffee shop venue. The food is good with an extensive menu catering to all tastes. Very busy for morning business and casual breakfasts with lunchtime being equally busy.

I enjoy my time at JBS every visit, any meal, any time or day of the week. Food is always consistently good and love sitting on the street people watching

Working in close proximity to JB's, we used to support it faithfully. However the ordering and delivery service just went straight out the window. Tendai being the front line for answering the phone and placing the orders, left us feeling very sad. Her attitude is disrespectful, orders are seldom correct, or just forgotten. Waiting for up to an hour for... More

People are friendly, and the cocktails are nice, but otherwise I agree with a previous reviewer who said 'nothing special.' The food I have had here the few times I've gone is always fine, but I think now that I've tried it a few times I get the point and I'll probably skip it now.

We ordered two chicken burgers but it you wanted chips that was extra. When the burger is already on the expensive side I find this a little bit of a slap in the face. Once ordered we found that their curly fries really were not worth it . So on my opinion stick to the burger which was really good.... More

Stopped by for a quick bite with friends. Restaurant was trendy, the staff friendly and the food fresh and delicious. Although pricey, I'll be back.

Not my favourite place but hey - for the sake of Trip Advisor, I'll make the concession. It's very noisy, the tables are squashed together and it attracts boykies and the female equivalent. The decor is too glitzy for what it is and its odd shape gives it bad feng shui. The menu is very large - a warning sign... More

We went for lunch. The portions were huge and a little pricey for the menu. The outdoor seating was well shielded from the sun and the staff was friendly .
