Great variety of food which I,m sure would suit any fussy person.Lovely winter soup with bun as well. Seems popular going by the customers coming and going.

Food was delicious and fairly priced! Had a very wide range of things to choose from cabinet to all day menu that runs till 1 hour before close. Customer service was lovely as well. Will be back in future!

I love dropping in to Capers for a quick coffee and small nibble. Their selection is very good, and I love their slices - when paired with their wonderful barista coffee its a real pick me upl.

It was pleasant to enter as there was no music blaring and you could hear yourself talking. Food was beautiful and their scones are just awesome. Coffee also really nice. Friendly staff and overall a really pleasant experience.

Recently went here with a few "oldies" for morning tea. Ok but food is uninspiring. Some of the items in the cabinet looked a bit dry.

The coffee was good but the place itself needs a bit of an upgrade. It was quite dirty overall too. The carpet needed a vacuum and the seating was dirty and full of crumbs.

A popular place for lunch and coffees, with ample seating inside and out, and a large selection of cakes, rolls and savouries. The staff is friendly and the service efficient. I do wish these places would serve 'small' though: my tasty 'fly slice' would have easily served two ... or three! Toilets are available.

I remember watching a show on Television called Cheers and when you walk into Capers you feel like part of the Family just like this show portrayed . The staff are so wonderful as nothing is a problem. The food is excellent and great value for money which is a big plus these days. You will not be disappointed if... More
