I had been to high cafe twice before - albeit a year ago- and had very good experiences both times. For this reason I booked me and my boyfriend in for his bday dinner. On arrival the waitress couldn't find our reservation but seated us...More

I love High Café. The food is delicious, reasonably priced, and the portions are generous. The service has gotten worse in recent months though; slow and not particularly friendly. Would still recommend.

Having frequently eaten here, the place does have its pro's and con's. It does seem to be a case of who you get to serve you depends on how fast the food and drinks arrive, and how quick they are to bring you a menu,...More

We wanted to have vegetarian food and this place served us well. The waitress suggested a morocco dish (which we did not like much though). However all other food was excellent. The place was crowded and loud, but we got a nice seat in the...More
