I have been to News Cafe previously so I don't know why I decided to risk it again. The food wasn't too bad but the experience was bad. Slow and disinterested waiter. At one stage thought he had gone home - I was waiting to order another coffee. Its a pity that these News Cafe's have gone down as they... More

This cafe is bustling with life with wide range of drinks and food. Cosy place to hang out with friend and family. But once it's inching near 10pm, you will beg to be served anything. By 10pm, you must quit. Don't ideal for night crawlers.

Caters more to the younger set I'd say but the food is good and great atmosphere. Good variety of food to choose from and normally good parking close by. I haven't had a bad meal or bad service at these chain of Restaurants.

Tried something different and had breakfast. Was very quiet and service a little slow. The breakfast menu is not outstanding but adequate - however found the food average and a little pricy for portions and quality. While I would not rush back certainly will stop by for breakfast if the need arises as conveniently placed.

I am not impressed with the location of this news cafe as it is right on the street and on hot day all the car fumes enter the premises...

Aggressive drunk guys caused problems with out group. Management need to be aware of this and ensure they have the back-up to oust miscreants.

The vibe here any night of the week is awesome, and the wraps are delish
