    A local with reliably good food and great coffee. I find it hard to go past the salmon danish with its generous serving of salmon and so beautiful in its presentation.

    A little quieter today however that didn't stop the attentive service and exceptional food. The open steak sandwich looked (and advised tasted) divine. Will always be back, you can't go wrong here.

    Have alway love the cafe but it is my first time booking the table on opentable and they said they didn’t have my booking. I’ve booked for the table an hour before my booking, maybe that was the issue? Fortunately there was table available.

    Lovely contemporary quiet restaurant where we lunched. Enjoyed a tuna steak salad which was bursting with flavour & superbly presented. Don’t miss out ordering their potato fry’s, fried to perfection, crisp & light! Substantial servings, excellent value! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend

    Lovely cosy restaurant with professional attentive staff. Good wine selection and not over the top on wine by the glass. Fish was fresh and very flavoursome but a tad on the expensive side give the small piece of fish that was served.

    Cafe Latte is a place I love to go: it feels good, you can have a great conversation, convient location and great food. However, three things have changed over the years. 1. Hours, they appear to no longer open for breakfast 2. Chai, they no longer offer Chai Latte in their drinks selection 3. Service, and this is the important element, some of the waiting staff are dismissive, surly and they just don’t make you feel welcome. (and this wasn’t the newer staff). Our dining experience was great this week ... except right at the end when the service element played an abrupt negative role turning a great night into one with an unnecessary crappy end. So ... I’d say give it a go but be wary of the Service attitude and if you get rushed out some of that ... don’t go back because it means our experience has become common practice.

    We ordered Gnocci which was so salty that it was unenjoyable. We also ordered veal scallopine which was very good. Service was good and we were given a free drink each because of the poor quality of the gnocci, but it di not compensate for the failure with the food

    The staff usually so helpful and pleasant clearly had a problem. The service was painfully slow the meals took over an hour to be served and the restaurant was half empty. The food was delicious except for one dish the veal, it arrived 10 minutes after the rest of the meals, clearly forgotten and unfortunately over cooked to the consistency of rubber. I’m sorry to say a less then impressive experience.
