“Terrible meal - extremely disappointed”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Ordered a cheeseburger with fries. What was received looked like it had come straight from an Iceland supermarket. Frozen steak chips & a burger that didn't taste of anything, you could not identify it as being beef, nor anything else for that matter. The cheese was literally a processed cheese slice, one of those cheap plastic-type ones. The bun was one of the small seeded frozen ones, it was dry & awful. No garnish, nothing. It was dry & for the price absolutely shockingly bad value for money.

“Good Steak SW & Great coffee”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

My partner and I had the Phili steak ciabatta with chips £7 so reasonably priced, it was a wee bit on the greasy side but tasted good though it could of done with some seasoning and was suprised to see there was no garnish on the plate. Coffee was very good, an excellent bean, I used to work as a barista for Costa and Downtown beat any coffee I've ever had at Costa plus Costa now serves their coffee too cold for quicker customer turnover ehich I'm glad to say Downtowns coffee was served at the perfect temperature and if you like flavoured syrup as I do sometimes they don't skimp on this either. One thing I did notice was I couldn't see any extras you could order like a side salad, coleslaw or mushrooms which would have been nice but over all very well done and we will be back. Service was fast and friendly : )

“The best cafe in Douglas!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Seriously the best place in town. Coffee is fantastic, food is varied and delicious and the staff are tentative.

Ask for you Cappuccino with flakes :-)

I often go for lunch here, the Cajun chicken wrap is lovely. Kids meals are good too. The smoothies are good too. Good value all round.
