Thursday Bistro

Great for a relaxing bite to eat with some wine (BYO) and the piano playing in the background. Good choice of food. Daytime the lunches are well presented and tasty.

Nice spot.Very modern and bright. Coffee and food is all excellent and staff are great but - it may be me - I just don't find the building attractive!!! Its modern and bright and the furnishings are excellent but for me it just lacks that extra factor

Popped in here yesterday for brunch. I had the big breakfast and a coffee. Everything tasted lovely and fresh. The coffee was very nice. Service with a smile and attentive. Only gripes were the size of the cup for a regular coffee and the fact that soda bread was advertised in the breakfast and it came out with a toasted... More

I have visited cafe smart lots of times for breakfast, lunch and coffee. The food and service is generally really good. Tonight I was just there for coffee. Overall I find the lunch options slightly overpriced compared to other cafés in the area however they are good quality and so I normally don't mind paying this. Tonight however I was... More

I went here in November for a friend's birthday lunch and don't have a bad word to say. Service was friendly and fast for a busy saturday morn! We had 'brunch' and it was absolutely lovely. And the best thing is definitely the tea - they serve it in iron pots which is a lovely touch, and you can buy... More
