Stopped for a light lunch here as didn't fancy burgers and chips which seems to be the norm in Queen Street. It was the most delicious chicken wrap and perfect cup of tea, just what the doctor ordered. Would definitely stop here again :)

Enjoyed a much needed coffee here after walking miles around the city. Don't recommend sitting at outside tables though as the fumes from the traffic are unpleasant.

Great spot to grab a drink after (or before) a show at the Civic, and good at the windwo to watch the passing parade - but this is the not a destination bar. The counter food looked average. Too many good restaurants and cafes around...More

If you like to sit down and watch people passing by, that't the right spot. It is on a busy street and you can sit outside, enjoy a coffee or a drink and look at people passing by...

Stark's Café and Bar has a new team, a fresh look and the doors are open to offer daytime and showtime treats. Daytime Stark's is open Monday to Friday from 8.00am and Saturday from 4.00pm. Drop by in the morning for Caffe L'Affare coffee and breakfast bite. Make your business meeting a little more interesting with a cup of tea from a vintage cup and saucer and a sweet treat. Enjoy the lunchtime cabinet selections from filled baguettes, croissants and bagels to the lunch dish of the day. Showtime Stark's is a place to meet - after work, before a show or when you're winding down your night. There are some special cocktails on the menu and the team are working hard to make Stark's a great place to visit. Stark's will remain open late and during weekends if there is a show at The Civic.
