“Changed hands but still great”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

We went looking for Cafe Cine to find it had gone and 55 Cafe & Restaurant was in its place. Had the best coffee here from our holiday in Malaysia and Singapore (secret, according to the lovely Malaysian owner is her husband who is european and sourced the coffee and machine, as well as an excellent barista). Beautiful cakes and cold drinks and the lunch menu looked great as well. Owner was just lovely and so keen to make a go of it. Some people have apparently walked away once they discover it is not Cafe Cine. We say, give it a go. It's fabulous!
