Critic's review

Food
The menu is divided into sections according to the times served. In the morning, look forward to breakfasts such as the spinach-spiked green pancakes; the deliciously creamy mushroom ragout or the fragrantly spiced shakshuka. For mid-morning cravings, indulge in the selection of sandwiches, all served on your choice of homemade Bree Street sourdough, ciabatta or 66% sourdough rye.

The afternoon lunch menu has a selection of interesting salads and health bowls to choose from, as well as the homemade pie du jour served with a crisp side salad. Breads, pastries, tarts and sweets are served all day.

End the meal off with the dark chocolate brownie with chunky nuggets of white chocolate, or a perfectly creamy and crispy pasteis de nata.

Drinks
Choose from a selection of teas, including a few fruit and herbal infusions. Order your coffee how you like it but remember the golden rule – no cappuccinos. (Jason serves only flat whites.) There are dairy-free alternatives available for those with allergies. There is also a selection of on-trend matcha, turmeric and beetroot lattes on offer as well as a selection of iced coffees and juices, including a local hand-pressed grape juice.

Ambience
The open-plan kitchen is a great feature in the restaurant and allows you to watch the masterful bakers at work. The high ceilings and modern light fixtures gives the space a loft-like feel with plenty of seating available indoors, in addition to some outdoor seating. There’s more seating space than the Bree Street branch, so it feels more inviting for a sit-down meal. Saturday morning queues are long, so go during the week if you’ve got your heart set on dining here.

Service
Service is quick and attentive. Everyone is young, friendly and knowledgeable of all the menu items.

And…
There are plans to open the restaurant in the evening for a few nights a week once the liquor license is finalised. Most exciting of all: there is also talk of eventually trading on Sundays as well.

  • We went to Jason for brunch. It is a trendy and busy restaurant that is frequented by mostly 20 to 40 year olds. The ambience is amazing and so is the food. Amongst us we had croissants, banana bread and corn bread which was all so delicious. They also sell their breads and pastries. All in all a great experience. We will be back.
