About The Cafe
“Jackson’s California Lake Café is just the perfect setting.”
We offer a wide range of freshly baked cakes, brownies, Danish pastries, scones and other treats, perfect to go with our superb coffee and tea varieties.
The breakfast at Jackson’s is made using real quality ingredients; customers really do taste the difference. From our most popular Full English or Scotch Pancakes to our much loved Eggs Benedict there is something for everyone.
The best breakfast – served all day!
We serve freshly made sandwiches on a variety of bread, including gluten free, as well as jacket potatoes, home-made burgers and a great kids menu, all freshly made to order!
We offer a great variety of daily specials and on Sunday’s we serve Roast’s using only the best locally sourced meat we can get our hands on, with a great selection of vegetables and real gravy. Roast’s are gluten free barring the Yorkshire pudding and Served 12-3.
During the Summer we replace Sunday Roasts with a BBQ outside the front of the cafe - burgers, hot dogs and much more available!
If you have any allergies or dislikes, we are more than happy to alter the menu to meet your needs. Please make us aware of any allergies when ordering.
We are also fully licensed, serving a variety of beer, wine & spirits, perfect for a long summer afternoon. We have had San Miguel draught fitted, so for those of you who fancy a pint in the sunshine, you know where to come! We also served Mulled Wine during the Christmassy Winter months, so come down and join us by our log burning stove and get comfortable with a naughty treat or 3...
There is a children’s play park right next to us, a beautiful scenic path around the lake, tables and benches outside for the summer months and a super cosy log burning stove for those chilly winter days - come down and join us at Jackson's today!
