“Tasty food and good strong coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

A wet and windy day, this cafe was a welcome shelter from the storm. Very busy and we had to wait for a table. Great decor, from the solid oak tables, to the classy photos on the wall. Eggs benedict was tasy if a little on the small side - no side salad. The lamb burger was also tasty and much more filling. Coffee was forgotten, but good when it arrived and they were good enough to strike it from the bill.

“Great Little Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

I really liked the solid oak tables in this well-located cafe near the water feature in the Cuba Mall. We stopped in for a beer after dining elsewhere on a Friday night and were made most welcome, the large mirrors on the wall are another attraction, we didn't eat anything but we enjoyed our visit.

“Mixed bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Great food and a great spot in the sun, sadly the service was a bit ordinary and at times confused. We sat down and had to call over a waitress after about 10 minutes. She asked for drinks without giving us a drink menu. When we started to ask questions she went to get one and left us for another 10 minutes. After we'd ordered food and drinks another waiter came over and put down 2 napkin and 2 butter knives(there were 3 of us). When we explained that one was having steak he smiled and walked off (we didn't see him again). Eventually when we did get served the food was lovely. A pass mark, but definitely could do better.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food and service were outstanding; staff could not have been more helpful, were friendly and went out of their way - even though it was busy. The food was great - looked good and tasted superb. Mains was followed by desert and excellent coffee to finish with. HIGHLY recommended!
