Stamps is a Cafe. Not fine dining. But the food and service were excellent. We met some friends here at their recommendation as they often eat here. Coming from Alberta I wanted some "fresh local fish". Not disappointed.

We had breakfast at Stamps Cafe...it was an average meal. One consisting of eggs, bacon and toast, the other was pancakes and eggs. Service was good, prices reasonable...only beef...it's in the Best Western Hotel building and there is no sign outside saying where it is. Great if you are a local, not so good if you are passing through looking... More

Been here many times. Sometimes food is good, other times not so good. Really depends on who's cooking that day I guess. I ordered a sweet teriyaki chicken salad and it was amazing! But I have ordered it 3 times since then and was disappointed every time. Waitresses are friendly, and it is usually easy to find a quiet place... More

This is becoming a bit of a habit for Jaeger Schnitzel. There's lots of items we have yet to check out. No doubt we will as we've enjoyed the service. Thanksgiving we took the mother-in-law there for Turkey special. It was pretty much as good as home-made except my mother was not the best cook ;). MORE gravy would have... More

We often don't eat in a hotel as they tend to be expensive but this one wasn't too expensive; the quantity, selection and service were very good both for dinner & breakfast. As the hotel has an on site restaurant it doesn't do a tariff with free breakfast.

My husband and I went to the Stamps Cafe for a quiet dinner very disappointing food. We started with calamari - very greasy and no flavour - this consisted of a heap of it drowning in fat on a platter with no garnish a tiny patch of wilted lettuce. I ordered lasagna - which consisted of obviously precooked noodles and... More
