This place tries to serve on the edge of 'trendy' but still manages a decent meal (breakfast ) whilst keeping prices at a reasonable level. Somewhat noisy as groups seemed to be meeting on the way to work etc. Wholesome food, quick service with a real smile and lovely atmosphere. Prob not great for a young family IMHO.

Perfect place for breakfast of different types. Excellent choice if you're tired of English breakfast; they provide poached egg. Opens early in the morning.

We ate at the Harlem Café for the first time with friends and I have to say, it was a surprising and enjoyable experience. Surprising because the food was amazing and the prices similar to other restaurants. It was enjoyable because the staff made it so. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and the staff were both attentive and courteous.... More

Was advised to have a wee look at this place and have to say I was not disappointed. A completely different place than what I was expecting and lovely interior and tables. And the breakfast bagel was lovely and fresh. Thank you

This cafe is so quirky, there is so much to look at. We wish that when we visited we hadn't eaten else where, we did manage coffee and delicious scones (cinnamon and cherry) but so wanted to try the food on the menu as other people's looked lovely. Unique place not to be missed.
