When my husband saw meatloaf and mashed potatoes on the menu, he couldn't resist. His dinner was every bit as down-home delectable as it sounded, with the bonus of delicately battered but spicy onion rings. My tequila-lime chicken breast wasn't one of those dried-out breasts you're sorry you ordered, and while not in quite the same league as the meatloaf it was still good for the soul after a day on the road. Mom wanted you to eat your veg and so does mocha cucina: both entrees came with generous sides of asparagus.

Housed in a former blacksmith's shop, this restaurant is one of those local home-away-from-homes that you don't find in big cities--they do brunch, coffee and pastry, even weekend dinners with live entertainment. They offer books for solo coffee drinkers and toys for kids. I doubt we'll be back this way, but this place is well worth a return visit.

Let me just say I LOVE this place. During my stay in Lethbridge (3 weeks) I ate here over 5 times if not more. The services great, food was excellent and if you are there for their tapas and wine nights even better. They have imported bears, delicious desert and everything I did order was delicious. They have a patio as well.

I ate two meals here during my stay in Lethbridge, one dinner, one breakfast, The food was extremely tasty! Staff professional. service good. On Friday night a nice band was playing and it was a nice mellow sound -- not too intrusive. Seems a popular place and I'd definitely go back when in Lethbridge again.

Our daughter has expressed how great this restaurant is for years. Finally while in Lethbridge this past weekend we were able to enjoy it with her and our other children.

Visitors to Lethbridge really need to look this place up and give it a try its centrally located in the downtown area,

There is a live musician most weekends, which gives the place a warm romantic atmosphere. However, they have a really awesome patio too -- so if you are lucky enough to be visiting with fair to good weather ask for the patio, or better yet phone ahead and reserve your table as it fills fast.

The Mocha Cabana supports the Culinary Program at the local college, and what a treat that is for their patrons. Most weekends one of the apprenticing Red Seal Chef's gets to feature their culinary creations on a special menu.

We truly enjoyed the Apprenticing Chef’s creation, plus the couple pizzas that we ordered off the regular menu. Furthermore, the server’s know the menu well and have actually tasted the food which goes a long way when ordering for the first time.

The atmosphere is wonderful, the food delicious and the service top notch. They make it easy to recommend to everyone. We’ll be back for sure.

We dropped in at this place for a quick lunch meal on Sunday. We were craving for some soup but Sunday is the only day when they do not serve it. Bigger meals are available from 5 pm only, so we went for wraps and Thai salad. Veggie and salmon wraps were really delicious, though salad was not good. We liked the service and the atmosphere!
