Honestly, one of the few times where I've gone out on a Sunday morning for brunch and received really good food, really good coffee, and really good service. Service was really good. We were sat really quickly which we weren't expecting considering it's Sunday Brunch...More

We find ourselves at Fidel’s Cafe every weekend for brunch. There are lots of menu items to choose from and it has an awesome atmosphere. Absolutely love the waffles! It gets very busy in the weekends so go early!

Located at the top end of Cuba Street, don’t let that put you off. It’s small and intimate- coffee is perfect. Breakfast of not just the traditional bacon and eggs, smoothies in a bowl round out the offerings. Yum! Need to come back for dinner!

I had my breakfast here. Coffee and muffin, both were good. The staff were kind too. It is very easy to find - find the Cuban flag.

Me and one of my girlfriends visited Fidels over the weekend, and although there seems to always be a wait for a table it's very much worth it! The food is amazing, and really fills you up. Flavoursome and not too expensive either. Service could...More

We ordered the beef cheeks, pizza and salmon. Our waiter, Owen, was very likeable and attentive, as was Claire. There was a glitch with our order, when our son's pizza turned up late, but to make up for this, Owen offered us a 10% discount...More

Excellent service from friendly staff. High turnover so usually a table available with only a short wait. Plenty of counter food for a quick lunch and good coffee.

Really good milkshakes for 9$. Sadly just in one size but they’re still bloody awesome. The Musik is really nice. The restaurant is pretty big and full so it could happen that you‘d have to wait for a seat. But the waiting is worth it.
