Description: Koo Coffee opened it's door in September 2006, inspired by our dream of creating a unique but affordable coffee and dinning experience that people would remember. After many months of searching, a local building that was once a fondly remembered delicatessen since 1928 became available and after 3 months of hands on labouring we finally opened our doors to a expectant neighbourhood. After spending months searching and tasting, for the best coffee, we are proud to be associated with Puro coffee, a unique and fabulous tasting fair trade bean of which we have exclusivity to in the area. As well as great coffee, which is "good all day!" Koo prides itself on offering a simple yet sophisticated menu, full of great fresh continental produce sourced internationally as well as locally. Not only does Koo offer great coffee and food but we go one step further and we offer great wines which you can sample in one of our increasingly popular wine tasting events.

Went in for a meal with my fiancée, never been before was recommended this place by a friend. Visited on a busy Saturday afternoon, the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. The service was great the staff were friendly and polite, the food and wine were great and reasonably priced. No complaints at all, would highly recommend koo bistro!

I was disappointed with the food here. I ordered a hot beetroot and mozzarella salad. The mozzarella was of very poor quality = not the better , fresher type I expected and they actually put warm PICKLED beetroot - from a jar! on top. It was foul. I asked for them to take it off as I cannot stand vinegared... More

Have been a few times now to Koo, but only ever for a cup of tea and coffee and this time wanted a bit of lunch, so I ordered the soup of the day which was carrot and coriander, and it came with a homemade white roll which was so yummy! The staff are all lovely, however the one thing... More

Went along for brunch with my little daughter. Pretty place inside and nice touches to detract from its busy main road location. Menu promising for breakfast but food nothing special. Creamy scrambled eggs were not creamy but did have some chopped fresh chives to make it look the part. My order was incorrect and when I discussed this no apology... More

We've been two weekends in a row to try it out but there have been mistakes both times that make me wonder if we'll go again. It's a lovely cafe with relaxed décor and comfy seats. On our first visit we had lunch with a lovely jug of green lemonade. This was delicious, especially on a hot day. We both... More

We took my brother and sister-in-law here for Afternoon Tea last week to celebrate her birthday. We had pre-ordered and were asked when we ordered if we had any dietary preferences and I had said that everyone was ok. The staff were wonderful, they were very friendly and helpful. When the serving stacks arrived, the miniature cakes were wonderful, the... More

having been to Koo on previous occasions for lunch/coffee decided to take my mum for a special mother's day treat. We booked ahead for the 'ultimate afternoon tea', the menu online did not explain what was included in detail so we waited for an introduction to the tea from the staff, but this did not happen. We were just asked... More

Sorry to read of your disappointment, however I feel I must clarify the situation to help in the further. When you phoned and booked the ultimate afternoon tea you would have been asked at that point whether or not you had any dietry requirements such as gluten free or veggie, as we like to make sure all our guests are...
