About us

“J+A Café is hidden at the back of one of those timeless, labyrinthine east London yards. Simple and unpretentious, the room has an old-fashioned warm and rustic feel.”
ES magazine (London Evening Standard)

Tucked away in a courtyard between Clerkenwell Road and Great Sutton Street, we are on the ground floor of a beautiful old diamond-cutting factory.

Our café is inspired by traditional family values and good old-fashioned hospitality. In our family, the kitchen is at the heart of the home: there is always fresh-baked soda bread, a big pot of tea and a cake on the table. We have tried to recreate that feeling of homeliness wherever we can. Everyone is welcome and will be greeted warmly in comfortable, unpretentious surroundings.

We have worked hard to build a team at J+A that is friendly and helpful. Each one of us is passionate about putting a smile on your face with excellent service and fantastic fresh food.

Of course, the food! At J+A, we believe in healthy and wholesome home-cooking and baking, using simple recipes and fresh produce. From the bread and butter to our smoked salmon, all produce has been meticulously selected - from local sources wherever possible - for your pleasure. We love comfort food more than anything else, so whether you join us for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, you can be sure that our menu will have you licking your lips and dreaming of home.

“The two young sisters who run this café, Johanna and Aoife Ledwidge, use good produce - organic meats, proper breads - to great effect in simple, home-style dishes.”
