“Big surprise”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The coffee is great. That's always a very good sign. When we took that first bite of the special (pulled pork quesadilla) , our eyes opened wide, we smiled at one another and got busy. The food here is outstanding, the decor is unusual in the very best sense of the word. The service is friendly and the chefs really know what they are doing because it's all about making the food and drink memorable.

“Charming Diner with Awesome Coffee!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We were staying off Hwy 1 and were looking for something a little more unique than a chain. We were so happy when we found this little gem, we went twice and got the same great service and food quality both times. Will return here one day.

“Classic diner with better than average fare”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I'm a bit of a breakfast junky. I make a pretty awesome breakfast when I cook so my standards are high. Cadence comes close. The coffee is strong, the potatoes are done nicely and the eggs come the way you ask for them, i.e. over hard yolks broken... lots of places get the over hard part but mostly miss breaking the yolks. Attention to detail is important for customer satisfaction. Cadence has a nice vibe too with people dropping in for take out coffee. Lots of big windows to see what's happening on the street. I really like the fact you can order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table so no waiting for the waitress. Free refills of their quite high quality coffee.

“Cadence is a great spot for a hearty breakfast”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Cadence is right off the Bowness bike path so that makes it a great spot to stop for a great big breakfast. The service is always great but some time the line is a bit too long. I love the coffee but am often unable to join my fellow gluttons as there is a desperate shortage of gluten free choices.
