empty, should have been our first clue. Breakfast is hard to screw up, but this was really bad!! My son ordered some sort of burger that was like meatloaf (cheap fillers/stretchers) and even he would not eat it. I had ordered ala carte for breakfast...More

Although during the day it doesn't have much appeal the vibe is better at night when there are many youngsters having a jol. Cocktails are good as are their mixers. Good way to spend a night out. Decor lacks finesse but waiters are very friendly.

What a terrible example of a News Cafe - no atmosphere whatsoever during the day, with bland food to match. By night it turns into a 'lights flashing', 'duff duff' disco with deafening 'music'!
