Our Food Philosophy

Good, nutritious food is so important to us here at The Jazz Café. Most of our dishes are homemade and made from scratch using traditional household recipes. They therefore may look a little different each time. We also try to use the freshest ingredients wherever possible in our cooking.

You can guarantee that if we say vegetarian, we mean 100% vegetarian. We do not use animal fat or any other products that contain traces of animal ingredients in our vegetarian dishes.

We are also passionate about looking after our team’s well-being and advocate fair working hours and offer delicious meals whilst our staff are on shift to keep them fuelled throughout the day. We even offer food and drinks to our suppliers and delivery drivers as we strongly believe that the belly rules the mind!

Our chefs are always happy to create your menu to your own individual tastes and requirements. We do politely request where possible that our guests try to limit their food waste to help our overall goal of reducing waste.
