We had a fine breakfast here. The staff were lovely. The food was just ok - I didn't particularly enjoy mine but my partner was happy enough. There was a kids menu.

Visited here 3 days in a row last week. Great coffee each time and a breakfast menu offering lots of choice. There are more trendy places around but this was the best for value and quality.

Took an opportunity to go back to this old favourite on a recent visit to town. Sunday people watching turned up too much middle-aged Lycra types but we had a laugh. Coffee spot on, breakfast great. Corned beef hash cake was delicious. Great smiley waitress service, no long delay despite it being so busy.

My grilled snapper was delicious. However, the service I got during a slow hour for late lunch was not convincing. Slow and hint of arrogance was my experience. The Internet was supposed to work but it turned out to be slow too, and unreliable. Since the price level is on the expensive side in Mink Cafe my overall rating stays... More

Great breakfast with really nice freshly squeezed juice! Perfect start to my day! Price is reasonable and you can get in and out quickly with a quality feed. A definite visit.

If you want a good coffee you cannot go past this cafe. The food is good, but it is expensive compared to other cafes. I had breakfast and it was expensive for scrambled eggs on toast with a side of bacon. But the service is efficient and the cafe was clean and had a great atmosphere. It appeared very popular...

We had decided to walk back to our hotel, and needed to stop for a refreshing drink! We sat outside, enjoyed delicious drinks, and watched the world go by! What more do you need on holiday!

Nothing to write home about, the bread they serve with breakfast is not very nice and our meals were childish when they arrived at our table. Still a decent feed but just an average one. Coffee was brilliant though

Popped in for a coffee and a crisp sandwich, got exactly what i expected and paid for. Lovely staff and a very friendly barista who knew his stuff. Great value and what service really means anywhere in the world. Really pleased and got my Sunday off to a great start. Thank you !
