Fast, friendly service, neat atmosphere. Coffee was perfect to order! We didn't stay to drink but next time we definitely will. Welcoming.

“Good hearty lunchtime fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Went for lunch with my wife on a late-winter weekday. Nice ambience, great service, excellent food.

I had the beef stew -- traditional but rich and hearty. My wife had the smoked meat sandwich and a non-cream-based mushroom soup. Mouth is watering just remembering it all.

Will definitely go back when in the area.

“Favourite spot in Wakefield... and that's saying something!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We _love_ Kaffe 1870. Great atmosphere and great views in a great town. Cool music. Great selection of draft beers and single malts. But it's the food that's truly exciting. Always innovative, always excellent. My one and only suggestion is that the draft beers should be kept a few degrees cooler. Highly recommended cozy little corner of the world!!

“Fun find on a chilling night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Monday night Asian-fusion food was a fun find on a chilly winter night. Very tasty food, great atmosphere busting with locals and friendly service. Loved the 'boozy' coffee that the bartender created for me. This was a great place to sit and chat over a beer / coffee. I'll look forward to coming back for the turkey sandwich!

“Good Honest Home Cooking...Great Value and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I come from Wakefield...I have eaten at the Kaff many times...The food, service and value are essential to the experience I left with...and a full tummy.

So, it is a Bar and it does have beer drinking locals inside, they part of the scenary and a welcome distraction...and you just never know, you might enjoy some stimulating conversation while eating some delicious food....

Enjoy, this is probably the finest example of it's kind in downtown Wakefield...Take care, all.
