Mark and his staff provide great service, and excellently-cooked, tasty luncheon and early-dinner meals.

The cafe is attached to the Princess Twin Theatres and is furnished in retro fashion. The little cafe is interesting and I especially like the cloth napkins the staff provides when they deliver our meals. The staff is friendly, courteous, and willing to take a few minutes with each customer.

The soups are always of high quality and unusual. The paninis are varied and beautifully cooked. The coffee and teas are tasty. And everything is excellent value. The Princess Twin Cafe has no aspirations of grandeur - but it does EVERYTHING very, very well.

In all, The Princess Cafe is worth taking a few minutes extra to have a meal before attending a movie at the Princess Twin Theatre ... or worth the walk to the Original Princess after you've eaten.

Thank you for providing a different and interesting eating experience for us.

What a wonderful little spot to have lunch or dinner before heading into the theatre! The panini's are the best I've had. My favorite is the California Veggie and ALL the soups I tried so far are amazing - hard to pick a favorite. Love the atmosphere and being able to enjoy my meal, a glass of wine or beer sitting at the window watching what people are doing on King St. Tables and seating are limited, so if you're planning to grab a bite before a show, do yourself a favor and get there early.
Don't forget to purchase one of their wonderful desserts to take into the show with you for later!

Good service, nice atmosphere, and amazing sandwiches. What more is there to say? Great place for a date, a quick lunch, or to grab a drink before you head into a movie.

We like the warm atmophere and the seemingly unlimited selection of teas. They offer beer and wine and the panini sandwichs are really good; I love the california veggie. Good homemade banana bread and soups and the counter people are friendly, helpful and unflappable no matter how crazy, busy it gets.
