A quick take away

Fast and friendly service, my pre dinner take away coffee hit the spot. A truly good brew with the neat shortbread accompaniment an added bonus. Highly recommended!

Simple requests were too difficult for the waitress- cutlery difficult to come by and, when we got it, knife was so old it's cutting days were long since gone. Suggested Toilet a 400 metre walk way at the esplanade - useless when you have two young children and one doesn't want to go! Shame- wouldn't have taken much to make... More

Manners are optional at this fine establishment. I thought the waitress was gong to stab us and she did. Luckily I had been on a bender and didn't really care that much. Either way this place is putrid!

Anne runs a great cafe, very friendly, easy going and great value for money. The food along with the coffee is very hard to beat. Always satisfied after eating here, regardless if its for breakfast and/or lunch. No wonder we come back year after year after year. The time and affection she shows our 2 boys has made her become...

Loved it soo much we had lunch and dinner and breakfast the next day. Coffee was smooth and food just delicious. Tried several salads, the salmon was divine as was the salt and pepper calamari. The smoothies were fresh and tastes great. Sat outside watching the people traffic and feeling very relaxed.

Very disappointed, ordered fried eggs, received poached eggs that tasted like they had been boiled in vinegar and hard hard centres. Waitress looked like she was lost, came out with two coffees (our order) and gave one of them to a customer sitting on her own then delivered the other to my table, my husband had to wait for the...

We had many meals at Hides Coffee Cafe and we thoroughly enjoyed them all. Especially being able to sit outside in the evening, beautiful food and pleasant surroundings. The staff were so friendly and the food is a good price. The deserts are to die for, and the coffee was perfect temperature served with a special treat each time. We... More
