Quick visit with the kids before Cuba Dupa kicked off. Was quite busy but managed to get a seat. In short, we were served quickly by a lady who was fantastic! We were able to be served at our table and pay at the same time. She was very friendly and not just to us - I witnessed her in... More

The heater was on, the food was fabulous, the coffee rich and hot and the service impeccable. I sat working for an hour and at no point felt I was taking up space. Definitely will be back.

Nice place! We enjoyed a late lunch and a coffee. Happy that they served a good soy-milk cappuchino - a lactose intolerant Swede appreciated this a lot! Doesn't look like much but we enjoyed our lunch!

I had heard a lot of good things about this cafe so my hopes were high. Went with my boyfriend for breakfast and the food was bland, I had the egg florentine, no flavour and the spinach was really watery and slimy. My partner had the same but the meat version, again bland but the meat made up most of... More

Nice feel to the cafe on a hot afternoon, when we needed a bit of cool shade. All day vege breakfast was ok as were pancakes. English breakfast tea and flat white were ok, you would hope so, won't you? Cuba street cafe near the buckets. Nice place

Great friendly staff that were very attentive. Food was fabulous. Unfortunately it was very busy at the time we dined and we found the cafe very noisy, it made it very difficult to have a conversation .

Out for Saturday morning brunch. I had the the Big Plumster (big breakfast) and a flat white. Coffee was there or thereabouts for Cuba St. The food was a tad average. One poached egg arrived already broken and the other was overcooked (depriving me of the satisfaction of breaking them!). The components were all different temperatures ranging from piping hot...

Good location, just in the city centre with outside seating. Breakfast and lunch options, service friendly and quick. Price is ok. Recommended for quick meals and lunch break as well as a big breakfast!

While on Cuba Street we were just attracted by what appeared to be a fun place to stop for brunch and were greeted by friendly staff. Coffee was great and our food very tasty. So much more than just for the atmosphere.

Great vibe, lovely staff and the coffee is delicious. There are many places for refreshments on Cuba Street, but this is totally worth popping in for!
