Walked in for a few drinks in the evening and stood at the bar for an eternity. No acknowledgement or friendliness from the barman. or anyone We decided to give them the benefit of the doubt but sadly to know avail. What a shame. We walked out with no drink, just a bad taste in our mouths.

I wouldn't say I loved the place, but I didn't hate it. Alexandra was very nice and attentive! The place could have been alittle cleaner, needs alittle pick me up. I thought there was more on the menu when I looked on website but the tuna wrap was great! Food seemed pretty fresh.

After a day of sightseeing, I just wanted to find a place where to have some drinks and chill out before going back to the hotel. Browsing the neighborhood I found this place and wasn't so sure at the beginning: I thought it looked like a place for hipsters only and that if you were not part of the local... More

My boyfriend and I went here one evening for drinks and dessert. We loved the ambience of the place. The sangria was delicious. The dessert was good but I wouldn't say it was worth the eight dollar price tag that came along with it.

We had our company annual party at Sugar Cafe this past weekend. I was in charge of organizing this party. From the time I met the owner/manager Jamie for the first time last week, all through the planning process and to the last minute when we ended the party, Jamie's customer service was excellent! He basically made my problems his,... More

I arrived at Sugar, tired and needed a cup of coffee. The Blond behind the counter surely gave me that, and it was a boost! She also told me to try the Dutch Waffle with the coffee, which was a nice touch, I want to go buy them now for home!!! If you can grab a window seat, I would... More

Small comfortable place to hang out for drinks or very good bar bites. But the deserts are worth the trip on their own. Large diverse selection of innovative and delicious deserts worth going out of my way to try. A great find that I imagine most visitors never come across

A bit pricey, but a good spot for breakfast and lunch, plus free internet access and computers for those without their own electronics.

We were staying at the Wyndham so this was a perfect place to grab a sandwich or coffee. It has a great location, great service and great food. We did have a restaurant.com certificate that we used here without any problems. Would highly recommend this to anyone staying close or in the neighborhood.

This is a little, fairly quiet and neat place, close to Market street. It's great for having a quick chat in the evening, over a drink. There's good choice of cocktails, including cocktail of the day (less expensive), comfy sofas and a nice bar. It's not as noisy as most places which I appreciated a lot. Friendly staff and service,... More
