“Best Coffee Spot in Denmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We are long-time Christmas visitors to Denmark, and the morning coffee visit in town is a daily ritual. This is the top spot. The coffee is rich and flavoursome, hot, well made. It comes in large cups at a good price, and is the best value in town.
Try it.

“Gluten free, vegan, yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We ended up at Ravens for lunch, looking for something gluten free. They have a very good selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Some of the menu was a bit unusual - for "raw vegans" - and I ordered a "burger" that consisted of "bread" made from dehydrated sunflower & chia seeds, a marinated mushroom patty and salad. It was absolutely delicious! My husband settled for a more normal egg and bacon burger on turkish which was also very good, and my sister had a salad from the big selection. They also had a big selection of cakes and slices with many gluten free. Definitely worth visiting and trying something healthy and different.

“Good food, good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Ravens has a lot going for it - good coffee well made and very good food. Curries, salads, an emphasis on healthy, organic food done well. The space is a little awkward, but they have made it feel quite cohesive. The let down is the service. With one or two notable exceptions, the service is erratic at best. Customers can often be left standing for some minutes while staff chat in the open kitchen. Go for good coffee and food, but be prepared to be patient!

“Bike friendly cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Lovely ambience, very country feel. We were surprised they served rice and curries. Quite satisfying. Love the location, just at the 1st corner when you enter Denmark fm Albany.

“Good food but everything else lets it down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Okay this place is a puzzlement - the food is fresh, mostly tasty and pretty good value. Not great value because it is a little pricey for what you're getting. But it's interesting food - brown rice arrancini, yummy Thai chicken salads, delish chicken and avo wraps, good sushi, a truly scrummy flourless choc cake and without doubt the BEST coffee in town. The curry was a bit bland and boring but well good and used good produce. The bacon and egg baguette with caramelised onion was tasty but not fresh - cooked beforehand and heated up. Still nice though. But ohmygod the service needs a kick in the proverbials. And you can't just blame the staff who obviously haven't been trained well - the youngiish male owner is the worst. Unfriendly, unsmiling and inattentive - you can stand at the counter for some time while conversations get finished before you'll get served, everything takes way too long and overall it's as if customers are an irritation. This guy had a good idea but absolutely no smarts about really offering service - there are no systems in place as well. If your take away food needs heating he's just as likely to take your money and then make someone else's take away coffee before bothering ?? Remembering ?? To take your food into the kitchen to heat. Overall - the food is fresh, interesting and good but you'll get indigestion from the irritations of the reall,y lousy, slack, unfriendly service. But if you can't live without a really good coffee you'll just have to weather the crap attitude and service.
