Best coffee in town

My husband is a coffe lover and during our stay he tried cappuccino at four different places. Cafe Cinema was the best. I like how they offer small options of breakfast dishes.

Having wandered around town the day before, I was looking forward to trying out the Cafe Cinema. The breakfast options looked good, so crispy bacon, poached eggs and a homemade hash brown for me.

Awesome coffee, the cabinet food is great (personal fave is the Reuben sandwich) and the menu divine. Food for all occasions. The movie/meal deal is excellent value. Always a happy place and the extended outdoor seating is great.

Right next to the cinema I often go there with the grandchildren before a movie. We just have a snack. There is no children's menu so I find this surprising. It is often busy and you may have to wait for service. The food I have ordered has been ok.

Hi Jeanette, thanks for your review. We appreciate that other places have kids menus however we have a cabinet selection of cakes, sandwiches, savouries and pies, plus a -la- carte lunch and dinner with options children do enjoy- as well as pots of hot fries if that's all they want. We make all our food on site and use the... More
