“Great Coffee, plus fantastic breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

If you are a coffee lover, you can't go past Argo's you will definitely find what you need! There is also a huge seletion of teas and smoothies so something for everyone. You also will not be disappointed by their breakfasts, but get in early if you want a seat!

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you are staying nearby, do not bother going anywhere else for breakfast. A great location to eat and loved it. I really can recommend the banana smoothie

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Had brunch there recently and it was so hard to choose what to eat! A very busy place but easily found a spot to sit. Food was awesome and plentiful! Hot chocolate to die for. Glad to see the early weekday opening hours and will definitely go back there for a before work breakfast. Couldn't think of a better way to start the day.

“Best espresso bar I've ever been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

I've been to cafes and espresso bars all around the world, but whenever I come home my first breakfast or lunch is always at Argo on the Parade. Spectacular coffee, and a great variety of sandwiches, wraps, hot dogs, breakfast foods, and sweets and pastries. Largely run by members of a family who must work extraordinary hours in a week, it is worth the occasional wait to get a table (they don't take bookings). Funky modern design with an interesting cycle of art produced by local artists add to the great atmosphere, but it retains a friendly welcoming vibe. Do yourself a favour!

“Superb coffee, food and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

This family owned business is always busy because of the excellent coffee and tasty food. Attention to detail is evident from the coffee decoration to the separate display cases for pastries and for savory food. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The decor is minimalist but as the shop opens to the street, it's entertaining to be there. Argo on the Parade has a loyal customer base and it's best to avoid brunch times on the week end and the coffee moms who have just dropped their children at school. I tried a latte, a long black, a cappuccino and a decaf coffee, also four different pastries on different days and enjoyed them all.
