Found the service to be a bit on the slow side, but the coffee was ok. Don't think I'd go back here to quickly

Great place for coffee or meal, went twice. Friendly helpful staff, interesting stuff around the walls and great retro music. Good location too. Had coffee one day and a lunch with friends another, beautiful chowder.

Dined at Ivy & Lola's on Saturday (6th May) for brunch. The wait staff were fabulous, the coffee was great and the food was amazing. So much so that we decided to go back on Sunday. Shame about the different staff the next day. Waited 10 minutes in the cold while one guy went and got another guy to seat... More

I would say for brunch, there is more western comfort food than anything experimental. The staff seemed a little lacking, but we got our food and coffee without having to ask. There was more a laid back attitude but it was nice for brunch.

This restaurant is in best location in the center of town! If you can manage to get a seat outside the noise level and crowded ambience makes it a bit less enjoyable. The food was good and the service was ok given how busy the restaurant was when we visited!

Loved the vibe of this place, the quirky decor, great music, the modified piano for storing cutlery, assortment of glasses bringing back memories from childhood... so much. The food was delicious, my venison with blackberries beautifully cooked with wonderful accompaniments and the lamb two ways fantastic Highly recommended.

Came here on our first night as we were looking for a place with a nice vibe, this place certainly has that. The restaurant is your typical waterfront place, prices slightly higher than neighboring places which always takes away a bit from the overall experience. However, if atmosphere and scenery is what you're looking for, then this is the place... More
