I just discovered this place even though it appears to be a local favorite. Great food. Hard working staff and a Caribbean atmosphere

The pork jerk soup is just the right amount of spice. A thick and flavourful soup with chunks of spicy pork. And bonus marks for the Johnny Cakes that come with it. Always a great place no mater what you order. Excellent.

A north shore restaurant with Jamaica flare and Bob Marley live in the background..north shore gem. Personally I like breakfast and Jam Cam serves it up! Traditional or Jamaican spice it's your call..lunches and dinner also has the same Jamaican flavours..if you like the spice then drop in for great food and cool atmosphere...all at a reasonable cost..Family or friends...

The cafe is somewhat small, but adequate. Best for a group of 2-6 people. Service has been absolutely superior to almost all breakfast establishments in Kamloops. Friendly and considerate staff never let you sit with an empty glass/mug. The food however steals the show by far. If you enjoy spicy and savory meals, this place has what you're looking for...
