7 Cinema Place, Adelaide
A table adorned with quinces, from the garden of Maggie Beer, and one rather large zucchini may have stolen an intrigued glance from many passers-by, but only those who have dined at Jah’z Café know just how truly unique it is.
Located in Cinema place, just off Rundle Street, Jah’z has been buzzing with its welcoming and ambient vibe for almost 10 years. An unsuspecting stroll on a Saturday night and the approach of a delightfully sarcastic restaurant owner sewed just enough curiosity to venture into to the quirky café.
The dim lighting and soothing French music makes your time at Jah’z feel not so much like a meal time, but rather an experience. Greeted by welcoming banter with staff, I wouldn’t dare call it customer service, but something so comparative to a visit with an old friend.
With a glass of white in one hand and a crayon in the other, the butcher’s paper tablecloths are enough to entertain any adults after making a selection from the enticing menu, which provides both carnivore’s and the more vegetable-inclined with exciting dining options made from all local produce. With something for everyone, the menu’s greatest strength is perhaps that there is not one burger or ‘parmi’ to be seen.
Whether it’s an intimate dinner out or a catch up with old friends, make sure you leave a thankyou note on the table cloth after your delightful Jah’z experience.
