I went to eat with my partner and his dad and the food was nice but it was overpriced for a cafe. On top of that, they overcharged us and the staff (especially the ladies with the short blond hair) were very rude when I...More

The cafe looked good from walking past with fresh artisan type food. The baguette was ok but quite pricey! Sadly the toasted sandwich was not great and inedible as it was charred on outside but not melted in middle so just made the cheese sweaty....More

The Classic Cafe is a peaceful and friendly oasis, close to the noise and activity of the mall. Gentle, warm, atmosphere with charming, friendly and courteous service. The vegetable panini was delicious, coupled with apple pie and black coffee. Excellent, high value lunch. Highly recommended!

I always use this cafe when I visit the town, and always exchange pleasantries with the owner. I have always had good service, even though the ladies serving can be quiet abrupt. But my last visit was horrible, even the food was not as good....More

Freshly made paninis and sandwiches, sinful cakes, freshly made juices all delicious. Nice place to linger over a snack when out shopping. Has no attraction for the teenagers so nice and quiet and you are never hurried. Garlic chips are really good!

I've been past this place many times and finally went in for lunch. The lady taking the order was very unfriendly. I chose portobello spaghetti thinking it would be good if made by Italians (?) but it was really disappointing. The mushrooms were tinned button...More
