Friends and I eat regularly at Cafe 21 in the mall and always receive constant good service. Great customer service at many Darwin eateries is practically non-existent, but Cafe 21 is tops in this department. Friendly staff who go out of their way to make it a pleasurable dining experience. The food is of a high quality, fresh and well presented. It's not the cheapest place in town to eat, but the excellent service more than makes up for the prices. Keep up the good work guys, a lot of Darwin's cafe's could learn a thing or two from you!

I am from the hospitality industry interstate, where we take service seriously. The service in Darwin is questionable at a lot of places, in which i will not return. However i received excellent service from a young lady who i believe was Amy who exceeded my expectations when I gave her a tricky order. She clearly is in charge or should be. I will be back for coffee and breakfast and will recommend it to my colleagues and friends.

Eat at café 21 frequently and spend quite a bit of money there.
Walked in today to order some food for takeaway, lady hands me cold chicken wings, when I tell her she offers to ''reheat them'' for me. Food is supposed to be fresh, and I'm certainly not paying for reheated microwaved chicken wings. Lady was rude when I asked to swap it for something else, and when I asked for more cream with my cake she 'says "I heard you the first time'
extremely rude and unprofessional service.
I mentioned prior to ordering that the last time I ordered cake, it was a little dry. Lady then walked up to another server who was cutting my piece of cake and loud enough for me to hear she says '"she said her last slice was dry'' both servers glared at me as I left the store.
not happy, wont be returning for a while.
