I used to visit Cafe Klein regularly a few years ago. Unfortunately, the quality and atmosphere seems to have declined. It felt abandoned - no music, wifi was not working, food was lacking in quality and seemed thrown together, and service was poor (I had to explain several times that I had been charged for the wrong items even though...

With so many better options in town these days (Karma Coffee, or Ambient cafe just a minute away), why bother? Unmotivated staff, less than mediocare food, the menus are dirty, lousy decor (except the really nice mural), often closed. Invest your money elsewhere.

This is a nice little spot in the middle of town, the menu isn't huge, but the pizza is good and the people are very nice.

This was really bad! We first ordered drinks. As they do not serve beer we ordered a bottle of mineral water for my daughter and my wife and an apple juice for my son. The waitress asked if we did not want two bottles of mineral water so we assumed small bottle’s and agreed. Then she served us two 1.5... More

Cafe Klein served us one great food. Personally cooked by the owner Kinley, this cafe serves Western food, cooked authentically and lovingly. A good place for a meal and some great beef goulash, and sandwiches and soup.

Cafe Klein is a great little gem near the clock tower, across from where VAST used to be. The food is reliably tasty and fresh, and the bread that accompanies their soup is divine. The indoor seating is standard and the environment is airy and open, but the tables on the small outdoor patio offer nice people-watching. The pizzas are... More
