Another fantastic visit to Sugarcane this time for my daughter's 21st birthday. 21 of us for a meal a big party this visit and we couldn't have wished for a better night. It all went off with out a hitch,the food was beautiful as usual and a fantastic wee team off staff made it a very special night for us all. It was so good the birthday girl and i were back the next morning for the amazing sugarcane breakfast. I would recommend Sugarcane for a wee coffee or a big party is the place to be in Comber.

When the Sugarcane first opened you were always guaranteed good food, service and value for money. These days they overcharge for meals with small portions and service often leaves a lot to be desired. The last time I went here for breakfast was in August 2012 with a party of 8 of us. The chef managed to burn all of the fried eggs, the food was cold and the bill a joke. I haven't been back since and don't plan to unless I hear reports of big improvements.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for your comments. I'd like to take some time to respond to this review. Your title states,
"Not as good as once was" yet you clearly stated that you last visited in August 2012, some 6 months ago. You also state that we are expensive now, yet we are still cheaper overall than when we 1st opened in 2006 despite having absorbed many many supplier based price increases.

You also complained that your last dish wasn't to our usual standard yet I ask you if you actually brought this to our attention at the time? If you had of done so we would immediately rectified the problem and made sure that you left happy.

I really am bemused that after 6 months you feel the need to go onto a public forum to make a review of a visit in August last year. Also you may have noticed that our reviews are by in large very positive and that we are the no1 rated restaurant in Comber. This only come by way of happy customers that all seem to return week on week as we really do want everyone to enjoy both the food and customer service. We, like any business in not faultless and we always listen to our customers wether the feedback is positive or negative.

I do hope you choose to visit us again and that your next visit is a good one.

Best of luck

Peter McCleery

Popped into the Sugarcane Cafe Bistro for lunch. Excellent atmosphere in the place, and the menu was very good also. Seems to be an emphasis on using locally produced food (bread, cheese & meats etc) which is good to see. We chose the soup & sandwiches combo, and it was very tasty indeed. We inquired about the different menus that were available for our next visit to a staff member Chloe, and she very kindly printed off copies of the menus for us to take away.
All in all, the food was excellent, and Chloe looked after us very well and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back to sample the rest of what the Sugarcane has to offer! First class!!

I am a regular customer at Sugarcane, I've been many times with family and friends. As soon as you walk through the door you are welcomed by the very friendly staff, you never have to wait too long for a table or meal. The atmsophere and decor is lovely, I would definitely recommend! :)
