Visit prompted by live jazz event. Entire meal fantastic, crowning event was the Saskatoon desserts, pie and cheesecake. Service and atmosphere great. Staff and management all fully involved in service..impressive. Fresh butternut squash ravioli and chicken cordon bleu with yams both excellent. Would definitely go back when in town.

Based on TripAdvisor recommendation, we had dinner with family at Mocha Cabana. Great service, food, live music and wine. We shared Cabana chips, lettuce wraps and ravioli. Nice light jazz guitar and great ambience.

This place is phenomenal. From the prompt greeting as you walk up, to the delicate ingredients of their menu, right down to the carefully chosen local craft beer. We felt passion in everything. Our service was nothing special but the building and it’s history definitely were. On this particular visit they had large tables for graduate celebrations but we felt very comfortable near the back of the restaurant. Locally sourced products are listed in the menu as well. Truly an experience if you are in LA of AB

Not for nothing is this restaurant the current #1 of 202 restaurants in Lethbridge. Three of us had a late lunch (1:30 pm arrival) there on a Monday afternoon. The restaurant was quiet, but the delightful patio at the back was a little busier. We had to get the attention of our server, but once we had it, she was attentive. I had the Dragon Boats (basically, wonderfully fresh, crisp lettuce leaves with a bowl of pulled pork and a myriad of other ingredients). My wife had the Pulled Pork Sandwich, and our friend had the Fish Tacos. Our verdict: Everything was absolutely delicious. We will definitely return to sample some of the many, many items on the menu. There is a huge craft beer list, and the dinner menu is quite different than the lunch menu.

Just had a dreadful lunch at M.C. Usually, it's my favourite place in Lethbridge. I had the soup and sandwich. The soup was "beef pot pie" and it was salty and full of gristle. The "turkey" sandwich had so much mayo that everything slid apart and the turkey was so cold that I could tell it had just come out of a very cold fridge/freezer.
The waitress was efficient but not warm and sociable.
Has Mocha Cabana changed hands recently? Something has gone off the rails. Because of my past long experience, I'll give them one more try but this time was very forgettable.

Hello John, we really regret to hear that you did not enjoy your visit to Mocha yesterday. Rest assured nothing has changed at Mocha, same owners (Jaclyn & Angel). We do have new apprentices from the college that have recently started, that would be the only change. We did have our cold table serviced on Wednesday and it is working so well that we are having a hard time finding the right setting to not over cool the foods. I think that perhaps you just had a one off experience and for that we apologize profusely. It is repeat customers such as your self that create the foundation of our success. My only regret with this review is that it appears you did not reach out to Jaclyn who was managing yesterday, she would have made sure to rectify your meal so that you left happy and satisfied.
