“Good food, and lovely setting”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The location is great, and the restaurant is not crowded, which makes the whole experience very comfortable. The short menu has good tasty options, and all affordable too! Well worth a visit. They don't take bookings for lunch, but it is not usually a problem to get a table.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We decided to go to the Crawford Cafe for a late breakfast on a recent Saturday morning. Everything we had was first class and not unreasonably priced. The additional coffee top-up was also a pleasant and appreciated no-cost extra.

“What amazing food pity about some of the staff!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This was a find I had the spinach and mushroom pancake and wow out of this world. all other people with us equally enjoyed the food. lovely coffee and nice atmosphere. I was unimpressed with the person that served us. she may have been having a bad day but she made us feel very unwelcome as though we were an inconvenience. We put our buggy over by the door where there was another buggy and she was quite rude about us moving it as it was in the way of the fire exit. I didn't know it was a fire exit and would have no issue in moving it but it was the way we were addressed. Also our baby was a bit sick and I asked for napkins to help clear it up and she ignored me put drinks on the table where we were obviously trying to deal with a matter and walked away. That to me is not a very acceptable thing to do. For this reason I was slightly put out and upset with this. The other staff were very nice polite and chatty. but one did take away from our visit.

“Great place for a coffee after viewing the artwork”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food is good here but I go for the coffee and the delicious homemade cakes. They usually offer refills free of charge.
