Jack’s Cafe Cirencester

Jack’s cafe is in the centre of Cirencetsr, next to the Corinium Museum and quite a few shops in the town.  Now for us the best thing about Jack’s has to be the cakes (not that they’ll cheap but they are well worth it!).  Recently, Jack’s re-opened under new management and also had a new refurb.  Previously, the cafe always felt quite overcrowded and if there were a buggy, high chair and a couple of dogs in there it felt packed. However, it’s much more spacious, and they have re-designed the layout which makes it much more accessible.

They serve cakes, hot drinks, breakfast and lunches until 4pm each day.  They have a nice simple children’s menu of things like cheese and beans on toast, and the breakfasts vary from bacon baps to egg on toast which I had at a reasonable price of £4.50.  What I did like was the super quick service, dogs are allowed, they have high chairs and baby changing facilities, and the disabled toilet was pretty spacious.  We would definitely go again but when we left at 11am on the Saturday morning it was starting to get pretty busy so be warned.

A good option afterwards would either be the Corinium Museum, or doing a bit of window shopping down Black Jack street.  Also, the Abbey Ground play park (at the back of the abbey church) is less than a 5 minute walk away.  If you’re looking for a longer walk try the Bathurst Estate at the top of Cecily Hill.
