Pastries were some of the best I've had in London and the brunch dishes were also delicious. There is a clear emphasis on high quality ingredients. The space is welcoming and unpretentious. Will definitely return.

You failed to mention that booking times are only for 1 hour. This is important when making a booking for a social catch up - we were kicked off our table even though we were still drinking!

We LOVED our Liverpudlian waiter, we didn’t remember his name but he was really great!

Food was delicious, atmosphere was perfect, loved the lighting.

Only small issue is they didn’t have a vegetarian main, which was a shame but everything else was delicious!

Will definitely go back!

We came here for a birthday dinner, there were five of us and we ordered just enough. I think in total it was 12 plates. Our server was absolutely wonderful, clued up and just lovely, my sister was feeling poorly and she made her a soothing lemon and ginger tea and was just so accommodating. The little things are so important. Everything was flippin’ delicious and I couldn’t have thought of anywhere better to spend my birthday with my family. Loved it. Thank you team Jolene!

Such an exciting and sociable experience of ordering a selection of small plates, pastas and platters that all arrive at different times so you can really appreciate the flavours and delicacy of each dish. Contemporary modern European cuisine is the way forward and we will continue to visit here both in the evening and for amazing ham and cheese pastries in the morning.

Jolene is a really cool spot on Newington Green in Canonbury. The decor inside is very trendy. I booked a table for breakfast and when we were seated we noticed my name written in chalk on the table, nice touch!

The pastries are amazing especially the Nduja and Honey buns, they're worth the trip by themselves. I had fried eggs (which were cooked to perfection) on toasted sourdough which was also really good.

The coffees were really good although they're served in small cups and they took a while to arrive. A minor complaint on what was a great breakfast!

The wine is a bit pricey but the food dishes are very reasonably priced and incredibly delicious. The staff were incredibly gracious and accommodating. The noise levels are quite high so don't go with people who are hard of hearing (like... my mum!).

A shame as the atmosphere was great and I had high hopes but felt the menu was too restricted and way over priced - £8 for a side plate of broccoli ...............

After having heard rave reviews, we finally got around to trying Jolene ourselves, and it definitely lived up to the hype. Chic industrial decor, a small, contained menu, great service and fantastic food! Would highly recommend.

I am a total raver for this place. Their pastries and breads are incredible, coffee is great and their actual menu is never shy of delicious. Not cheap, but in this case you get what you pay for.

Generally enjoyed our meal. Food was tasty. Service was good, though it was recommended that we order a large plate along with what we did order, but no vegetarian large plate option available meant that we couldn't order as advised, which was slightly disappointing. Atmosphere was buzzy, bordering on loud. The main downside was that the seating felt cramped - we were rubbing elbows with our neighbours on the shared table, and waiting staff were squeezing past us on their way to serve other tables. Negatives were not enough to prevent us enjoying our dining experience, but indicate that it could be improved.

great restaurant. Lovely food and staff good drinks and ambience.

I have a gripe. I booked this in advance for my girlfriends birthday. We got sat on the very end of the bar next to the toilets and then told if we want to see the menu we needed to get up and take a photo of the chalk board and come back and sit down.

Lads. Don’t include the bar in your booking service, particularly not the seats next to the loo. An obvious (in my opinion) flaw in an otherwise amazing restaurant. I felt a bit disrespected. Hope to see it properly one day.
