We visited Spargos Restaurant/Cafe for brunch and then for dinner one night. The sandwiches are very tasty. We tried the Spargo Club sandwich and the open bacon and egg sandwich - both of which we recommend. Food was very fresh and presented nicely.
They serve dinner till late and the menu has quite a few options. We tried one of their burgers and a steak salad, again both of which were very tasty and reasonably priced.
Service was good. Staff friendly and jokey. Cafe has a good atmosphere and a few quiet booths down some stairs at the back of the cafe if you want some quiet time. They also have a seperate indoor smoking area which is handy if its raining outside.

Definitly worth a visit if your in the area. Even if just for a coffee.

We ate here as a couple on a Monday night as tourists. The nice terrace eating area drew us in. The menu consisted of a few specials on a chalkboard...a meat dish, a pasta dish with seafood, and a vegetarian dish. We had a difficult time deciphering the menu and the server did not speak much English so we just ordered blind. I had a cannelloni (2) filled with spinach and cheese, covered in a cheese sauce, and topped with shredded cheese. It was good, but far too rich and heavy for my palate and I only consumed 1/2 . My spouse had a meat (maybe veal?) which had been baked in a white sauce. He ate the entire dish without comment. Service was somewhat slow and I would have ordered another beverage had the opportunity presented itself.

We always seem to go here when we want a brunch. It's a great neighborhood cafe. The open sandwiches and uitsmijter with some mint tea hit the spot after a night out. There is a large area for outdoor seating, and it's never been crowded for our brunch visits. Service can be a bit slow though, but always polite when you flag them down.

The cafe is lovely, great ambiance and friendly service. The food is nice not too fancy but really good. First time we visited two years ago I had an amazing earl grey ice cream. The card is not huge but there is dish of the day, pasta of the day and vegetarian dish of the day. Free wifi makes it a place you can sit for hours perfectly happy. When the weather is nice the terasse is a perfect place to enjoy your meal, coffee or drinks.
