best craft beer offerings in downtown Cambridge, always something good on tap, and sometimes even a cask offering. Staff know their stuff and they support the growing Ontario craft beer industry. A regular spot to enjoy the festival this past weekend too!

We hadn't tried Cafe 13 yet and really wanted and finally decided to give it a go on a Friday evening. When we walked in, without reservations, it looked extremely busy and we weren't encouraged.

The food was just okay, not great. It was the service that has made me never want to return to this restaurant. My partner said 'yes' to cheese sprinkled on top of her pasta - they charged us $1.99 for this. I asked for honey for my tea - charged $ 1.20 for two teaspoons of honey!! Are you kidding... More

Overall just disgusting. I told the server and he said "just don't give me a tip" he didn't tell management or the kitchen. very... More

Every Friday and or Saturday I enjoy my delicious Beau's beer and sometimes awesome orange fries served by the best waitresses and waiters I have ever met in my entire 51 years. I also love to bring my family for special dinners which are always fun and delicious -such a great atmosphere. Thank you Café 13!
