Quick lunch

Wow this place was packed on a frigid day. Although spacious not so many seat. Great espresso bar, had a perfect double shot, no sugar needed. Tasty, homemade carrot ginger soup and a fluffy piece of quick were great on a cold day. Sandwiches are fat, if you like that. Looks like a popular local... read more

Having being spoilt by living in a small city full of independent coffee shops, this in comparison was somewhat of a disappointment. The coffee shop was recommended to me by a friend but I'm struggling to understand what all the fuss is about. Yes my hot chocolate is nice and thank goodness for soy milk but otherwise, there's not a... More

My husband and I had turkey sandwiches for lunch. The homemade bread was good, but overall the sandwich was average. I had a whoopie pie which was really good. Not too sweet or too much shortening in the filling. There was live music, games and books to encourage interaction and hanging out.

I really wish I had a place like this near me.. Very cozy, comfortable place to have coffee, snacks, use free wifi and read the paper. I carry very little cash, and did not realize this was a cash only establishment. Luckily, I had just enough on me to pay for my cappuccino. The froth was perfect, almost heaping over... More

We liked the comfy feel of this place, Locals obviously hang out with their laptops as we were the only customers not using them but talking to each other. Some live music was advertised.

It's late afternoon now and I keep thinking of the rare delight I had this morning biting into South Street Cafe's fresh, crusty cinnamon roll!

My wife and I found this place a few years ago and besides good coffee she's always enjoyed the lemon squares and always compares other lemon squares to this place. They have hot coffee and iced coffee but sadly no frozen drinks. Have never had a meal here so can't comment how their food is.

Very much a student coffee shop, with people working on their laptops on battered sofas, or tables and chairs which have seen better days. The staff are friendly, the coffee was good and they have live music (not all the time). Full of atmosphere.

A wonderful place to get a cup of coffee. Internet access and a great and friendly staff make this a premiere coffee shop!
