“The best on Oxford Street!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I have dined here so many times over the years and have only now thought to write a review. I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and have never been disappointed - im loving their new tapas range. Chantelle, one of the owners is just gorgeous! Her happiness is contagious and makes the dining the experience all the more lovely.
Another bonus is they have a Spanish guitarist on a Friday night. I always choose Cinema Cafe on a Friday night partly due to the fact they have this wonderful guy providing the most beautiful sounds to go with their beautiful menu :-) Elias' sells his cds, which is a lovely souvenir to a perfect night on Oxford street.

“Looks are deceiving”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I had avoided this cafe because it's a little gloomy looking. My loss! The food is brilliant. Best breakfasts around. Would you believe they make their own gluten free bread? My wheat-avoiding friend raves about it. And don't start me on the lemon meringue pie! Home made and a mile high! To top off the great service they let you split the bill!

“What a gem”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Hidden in the inconspicuous location and under a very unassuming name this restaurant provides a very eclectic menu of novel flavors. While not overwhelming, the selection in the menu is refreshingly different and caters for all testes. The service is very professional, very attentive to the details and overall very welcoming and warm. Despite the very good quality of the food and service, the price is quite moderate, also in comparison to other restaurants in the street. Reading from other reviews, I concur in suggest that this is a gem and a nicely surprising finding to which we will go again and again,
