The food is good quality and tasty. Service can sometimes be very slow which is frustrating as all it would take is to add another member of staff. Service doesn't always come with a smile either and sometimes it feels they wouldn't worry too much if you turned around and left. It maybe because it's one of the better places... More

I have visited Okka a few times now previously for a light lunch or a coffee which were both very good. More recently I have visited for breakfast and this is probably the best breakfast in Harpenden. The bacon, mushrooms and sausages all taste so good and the food is served piping hot. The restaurant is clean and staff are... More

Nice food presented well but service could have been a bit quicker. Somewhere nice to go for lunch so long as you are not in a rush.

Lately had brunch here. Another excellent experience, with friendly, efficient service and good quality food. My favourite dining spot in Harpenden at the moment.

I have here three times in recent weeks, having been recommended it by a friend. I would highly recommend the brunches - perfect for a Sunday morning and very addictive! I had the posh mushrooms on toast with a poached egg. The egg was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was wonderful. You can taste how fresh everything is. After starting... More

We met for a girly brunch and ended up staying until dinner and beyond, the food is delicious, the staff are lovely and the atmosphere is great! It's so rare to find somewhere that has it all covered. Amazing.

We use this cafe every Sunday for breakfast.Whatever the pressure, the staff are unfailingly polite. The food is excellent, how the chef does it, is beyond me. It is that popular that you do have to wait for a table sometimes, it is worth the wait. We also took friends there for dinner, it did not let me down. I... More
