I go out to eat a lot. A lot. So I’m always very surprised when I come across a place in my area that I’ve never heard of before. Jakes on Summerley is so close to my home, but it’s just off Main Road so you tend not to go past it by car. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It’s really such a lovely looking place, with a great outside area as well as quite a big inside area. The place is decorated in a modern yet slightly rustic way so it has a homely feel while still feeling quite upmarket. We originally sat outside as I wanted to enjoy the sun but there was quite a lot of building work going on next door so we moved inside.
The menu is quite diverse, but because I’m going through a bit of quinoa phase I immediately decided on the quinoa salad which came with spinach, feta, tomato and avocado. It was very light and summery. I really enjoyed it but I think it lacked something, perhaps butternut? There was a version with chicken so maybe I should’ve gone for that.
My husband went for the bunless burger which was served on a bed of greens and tomato and topped with a very generous portion of feta. He ordered the sweet potato fries to go with which I think was a very good idea. Without it the burger might have been a bit on the small side. It was delicious (I had a sneaky taste) and when I go back that’s exactly what I’m going to order!
The service was good and overall we had a great time. Nice little find!
