I have had several visits to the Garage and have not been disappointed. I like taking friends there because I can be confident we will enjoy the meal and friendly service. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu and will offer suggestions if you are having trouble choosing from the varied menu. It can get very busy so I usually... More

I was lucky enough to be taken here and bought lunch by a generous friend. We sat in the back room which was quieter than the main room. Service was polite and prompt with proper bred and butter served with my chunky vegetable soup. My companion had a Halloumi salad which had a generous portion of grilled Halloumi. Both dishes...

Visited Garage Lounge with my family and I have been a few times myself before. The breakfast choice is amazing, with all sorts of different choices you wouldn't normally expect to see on a menu. I would definitely recommend the All American Pancakes. Very generous portions with great quality bacon and sausages. The best part is the unexpected mix of... More

This is a local place run by local people and for that I'm chuffed for them, I try to keep my pound local where I can. The setting is very impressive, a lovely place to sit, work, chat or people watch. The selection of loose tea is vast and I love that there is a selection of fresh free water... More

My favourite spot to have girl dates, never let down with the food and their range of teas are delicious. The mix match furniture inside is divine, I want to take it all home with me. Love that it's open late and doesn't sell alcohol, perfect place to hang out with my husband for date night too as he doesn't... More

I have been here many times since it opened and it still remains one of my favourite cafés in Portsmouth. Unfortunately it's not somewhere you can regularly visit on a student budget but it is a real treat if you do get the chance. Never tried the cakes (which look delicious) but their breakfast menu is delicious and they have... More

Sweet and quirky cafe with plenty of seating. Several impressive looking and originally flavoured cakes to choose from - but really overpriced, especially as the sponge was quite dry. Wide range of interesting teas, although we had to ask for more milk after only receiving a tiny jug to go with two pots of teas. Order at counter but table... More

When I placed my order with the helpful member of staff I was surpised to... More
