This cafe` and its staff really do have character. I've always been served by very pleasant staff and I enjoy a little banter and 'sports' talk with the brothers who own the business while they're making me a damn fine cup of coffee. There is a great selection of light luncheon food available and this all goes well toward providing a great dining environment. I've been frequenting this establishment for 20 years now and struggle to find its equal anywhere else in this town. They provide value for money both with the food and drink, and the pleasant interaction provided by staff. Maybe habits die hard, but why go looking for more when the Penguin Cafe` has it all to offer me as it is? The service is quick, the choice of fillings are very tasty and the and pastries are delightful. I may just have to hang around for another 20 years to see if anything changes. Congratulations Penguin Cafe` - you're a winner!

Lovely place used to come here all the time with my mum and sister years ago, Went again recently and it tastes exactly the same and childhood memories came flooding back nothing has changed not even the decor. Great little cafe with great quick service and food.
