So I went to this cafe, based on the good reviews it had received from Trip Advisor. It appears that within the last three months the premises has changed management and is now called "Stoner". So, what can you expect from this place? It's a...More

This is definately the place to go if you want to relax with a sophisticated, top of the range coffee and a luxurious slice of cake. Atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. It is my new local favourite for when I need to unwind and indulge!!

Stopped in for a coffee and cake. Great place. Sandwiches and the usual take out lunch food is available, all reasonably priced.

This cafe definitely ticks all the boxes, excellent food (especially the cakes), friendly staff, great choice of coffee and teas, spotlessly clean, very good value for money, luxurious toilet facilities and all in a beautiful quirky decorated building.

Thank you - we do indeed take pride in our Davidoff coffee. So many of our customers, whether as connoisseurs or complete novices - enthuse about the coffee. It is indeed smooth and dreamy. We sell the coffee as beans or ground in our shops...More

Cafe continental is a lovely place for a quick lunch. I can take or leave cake unless it is home made. The cakes here are better than those i make myself, and i can cook. Well worth the calorie intake i didn't need!
