Groovy place that had the best Mexican chai iced espresso with cinnamon. Chocolate brownie also good. The breakfast menu looked delicious, will definitely be returning

Kiki Beware is a niche we boutique style cafe or larder room with light counter food and what I would classify as a refreshment room or bar. It has local art on the walls makes it all worth the visit it has easy entry straight off George Street and has big windows that open at either side of the door... More

Me and my boyfriend had a quick stop for a coffee and a snack here. And we are very happy we did. Coffee was good and both our bagels were amazing (had the vegetarian and bacon ones). Friendly staff and cool atmosphere.

Ok I admit it is cramped with not so great seats. The food however is nice and the drinks are great. Very popular and often packed. So worth a visit.

Great coffee, but the thing that keeps me coming back is the salmon bagel. Also a great place for a beer on the sunny side of george.

Unassuming looking little place and definitely smelt of fried food but in this case that was no bad thing. Really enjoyed our baguettes which were tasty and unpretentious. Simple menu with a good selection of specials and was really well priced. A nice little unexpected find.

The 5 spice chicken bar snack was so good - full of flavour & a great nibble for two to share. The only reason that the review is not higher is that there was a distinct feel that we either weren't cool enough or were interrupting the staff in some way. Also the venue could have been a bit cleaner.

I have never written a negative review of anywhere before but I am prompted to by the service at Kiki Beware today. Even though I have been in dozens of times the counter staff barely crack a smile or make me feel welcome. That I can deal with when and if the service is good. However, today during my lunch...

I have been many times for a beer and some bar snacks. They have stools right at the bar, which is great. The 5-spice fried chicken bar snacks are sooooo good! They often have a sandwich baguette version as well. Friendly staff. Place is very open and bright. They only have 1 beer and 1 cider on tap, but plenty... More

For something a bit different, head to Kiki Beware. Great wee bar/cafe. I had the Vietnamese Slaw salad which was delicious and any salad with fried chicken is a bonus in my eyes! Mostly bar stool seating, great for a quick bite to eat.
