I went there for a coffee at 5 pm and we could not have a table because they were closing to prepare for the next day party. This was notified nowhere

I ordered lava cake which was the best lava cake i have tried until now. The location is very nice, the service was great, music was good. I enjoyed my time and i hope to go back soon. I really recommend this place for the lava cake.

In a big office block set back from a main city centre street, the cafe has an attractive outside area to sit and eat, and inside is attractive clean lines – and lots of books to borrow while you're there. Food is good quality, international, well presented - the sort of place you now expect to find in a capital... More

The setting is nice, but the food is average and the prices are rather high. It's okay for grabbing a quick lunch at work, but I wouldn't come here other way.

Since it was opened I visited it regularly (two-tree times per week). I will no longer do that and not because the food is bad (it is acceptable) but because the service is crap. Yeah, crap. During my last visits, it took the waiter more than 30 minutes to take the order and believe it or not, that happen after... More

I used to work near this location and I can tell you that I have always been delighted to come here. The food is great, made for every taste and the staff is amazing. You can always count on them for a nice word or a good, hearty laugh. Moreover, the morning coffee is always better when drunk here :)... More

I went for lunch looking for something light, I had the salmon salad and was Ok, coffe is also nice. The only problem I find is that smoking is allowed and ventilation is not so great so the place reeked of cigarettes smell. Menu has a lot of options and service is nice.

The readers Cafe is a bistro with perfect setting for a quick lunch. The menu is not very big but sufficient for every taste. The service is always friendly and all dishes I tried so far were really tasty. I like to spend my lunch time here
