“Cosy breakfast”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We had some very good breakfast omelets at Cafe Lombards. We came back for a second visit and both times we were lucky enough to get the window table.

“Very Slow & Expensive”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Very slow service. The group that arrived 20 minutes after us received their food first. Our meals took over an hour to receive.
One cook. One server. Expensive. Not worth the price.

“Fantastic omelettes!!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

We went several times to this café for breakfast and we simply loved the omelettes. They have several to choose from and they are very fresh, tasty and creamy with good ingridients. The lady in charge runs a very neat and tidy place and she takes very good care of her guests. We have travelled down to Los Angeles and other places but so far not tasted any omelettes like this!

“OMG Amazing Food!!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

We got the Lasagna, Gorgonzola Spinach Penne, Great Ceasar Salad (w/ chicken) to go. The lasagna takes 20 min but is totally worth the wait. It comes with sautéed mixed vegetables (which are super delicious, my kids scarfed them up). In addition to eating all their vegetables my kids ate 2 helpings of the Gorgonzola Spinach Penne. The chicken in the Ceasar Salad was tender juicy and very flavorful. I recommend to everyone try this place! (Especially if you have kids) The food is simply amazing. The staff is awesome I sat near the kitchen and was totally entertainined watching the chef cook our meals. Try this place!

“So bad it was funny”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

After just arriving in town we wanted somewhere close to our hotel to eat and came across Cafe Lombard. The place looked a little run down but we thought we'd give it a go anyway. There were only 2 staff in sight, a waitress and a chef. After what seemed like an age the waitress came and took our order. It took 30 minutes before we got our drinks brought over. In the meantime there was a lot of banging and shouting coming from the open kitchen, every time a customer came into the cafe the chef gave a cry of despair. The waitress barked at the customers telling them where to sit as they entered. When our food eventually arrived it failed to live up to expectations, if we hadn't have been so hungry we would have walked out whilst waiting for the drinks. The food can only be described as over cooked, overs alter, overpriced pasta. It was so bad we had to laugh it off, we couldn't believe that we waiting so long for such poor food. The customers that where in the place left most of their food, as did we. The shouting and banging of pots from the kitchen was the most entertaining thing about the whole experience. Worst service we've experienced ever! Needless to say we didn't leave a tip.
