Family, friends and great food

We've dined at this restaurant many a time, having been introduced to Café 13 in 1997, we've had the opportunity to enjoy many a meal there. The menu may have changed over time therefore enabling our palettes to try something new but never disappointed. We've dined with family and friends and found... read more

First time back here in several years. I liked it better before. Wife and I had Fish & Chips (it is a pub). Service was okay. We sent the plates back since the F&C were almost cold. The replacements were piping hot. Chips (fresh-cut) were a tad on the greasy side. Fish was an unusual but tasty potato crust batter.... More

Our group of six were not overly impressed with the food on our recent visit. Although the fish and chips was good, the special of the day, a stir fry was very bland and certainly not impressive for the price. The jerk chicken was spicy but poorly presented and the apple noted on the menu was a tiny piece which... More

Great location and ambince. Staff is warm and friendly, we enjoyed ourselves here often on the patio. It's a good place to have a few drinks and relax in a friendly atmosphere. Very ... NORM!

Good food, great atmosphere! I tend to go to Cafe 13 more for the atmosphere than the food. The food is good, but if love the live music and just the overall feel of the place.

Second and last visit to this restaurant. Went for lunch. My entree was called prime rib sandwich on a bun with fries. Fries were few but adequate. Beef seemed old and reheated and had no semblance to prime rib and no flavour. Dipping sauce no flavour and greasy. Disappointed and won't ever be back.

The atmosphere, food & cocktails never disappoint! The staff is also great! Can't wait until the patio opens! Just a short walk to people watch & everyone chats & has a great time 😊

This place has a very welcoming feeling, the service was excellent and the food was well prepared. It'd definitely the type of spot you can visit regularly and be confident to bring out of town guests with you.

Was my first time eating here and what i ordered was excellent. Greeted at the door by the hostess and was made to feel welcomed. The service was great and the food was served just right between the appitizers and the Main.
