Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $9 - $10

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.

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...

Visited Koo last night for the first time. Lovely atmosphere, great service from the very friendly owners and amazing food. Think this might become a regular haunt and looking forward to my next visit!

Went here for lunch with a friend yesterday and the service was friendly and efficient with gluten free options on the menu. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and sooooo tasty.

I haven't been into Koo for a long time, so decided to take some friends for their Friday night Pasta Deal. The favourite pasta was the Nduja Sauce it was delicious and most of us ordered it. The wine and desserts were also yummy. It was a lovely relaxed evening with excellent service, food and company, all our friends really... More

Spotted this bustling, busy place by chance and thought it must be good. I was not disappointed. The lasagna was almost as good as my own, not squishing in creamy sauce as most restaurants serve, but with a certain dryness and excellent flavour that would please most Italians. The wine was tempting but this was a work trip so I... More

Love visiting Koo of a weekend- it's a real treat. Lovely decor and atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. They serve great coffee and have good selection of delicious cakes! The sandwiches are also good. The hardest bit is deciding whether to have a sandwich or cake- or both! Worth a visit!

Our experiences here have been so variable (from fantastic to very poor) that have finally lost patience and won't be going back. Once again, we had a long wait for our food (again, 2 other tables that arrived after us had their food before us). When it did eventually arrive, the fishcake hadn't been properly cooked and was stone cold... More

Having a lovely stroll up Chatsworth Road decided to call in for a lunch time treat. Had the burger which to be honest appeared to just have been defrosted and quite bland. The accompanying sauce/pickle seamed to be straight from a jar!! My wife's gluten free sandwich was very good, but overall £20 for this and two tea was expensive... More
