“Great Sandwiches during the day, Excellent grilled cheese at night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I've had their sandwiches during the day, and while on the pricey side they are wonderful if you feel like a small snack. Late night on Friday and Saturday they have grilled cheeses with bacon jam, definitely recommended!

“Great Place to Chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a laid-back cafe which I visit often, just to soak in the atmosphere and eat the yummy, yummy food. Lots of great vegetarian options available as well.

“Made-from-scratch soups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Charming atmosphere and good food. The made-from-scratch soups and sandwich specials vary day to day. Always recommended.

“Consistently Excellent Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Mark and his staff provide great service, and excellently-cooked, tasty luncheon and early-dinner meals.

The cafe is attached to the Princess Twin Theatres and is furnished in retro fashion. The little cafe is interesting and I especially like the cloth napkins the staff provides when they deliver our meals. The staff is friendly, courteous, and willing to take a few minutes with each customer.

The soups are always of high quality and unusual. The paninis are varied and beautifully cooked. The coffee and teas are tasty. And everything is excellent value. The Princess Twin Cafe has no aspirations of grandeur - but it does EVERYTHING very, very well.

In all, The Princess Cafe is worth taking a few minutes extra to have a meal before attending a movie at the Princess Twin Theatre ... or worth the walk to the Original Princess after you've eaten.

Thank you for providing a different and interesting eating experience for us.

“Wonderful !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

What a wonderful little spot to have lunch or dinner before heading into the theatre! The panini's are the best I've had. My favorite is the California Veggie and ALL the soups I tried so far are amazing - hard to pick a favorite. Love the atmosphere and being able to enjoy my meal, a glass of wine or beer sitting at the window watching what people are doing on King St. Tables and seating are limited, so if you're planning to grab a bite before a show, do yourself a favor and get there early.
Don't forget to purchase one of their wonderful desserts to take into the show with you for later!
