I went in for a coffee not expecting too much but have to say not only was the coffee great but so was the meal. Try the tofu veggie burger. I could not believe tofu could be that tasty. With crispy spinach and sweet chili sauce.so good! Nice location, pleasant decor, good service and great food. I will be back!... More

We had a good business meeting around a lunch table in 180 Degrees. It was pretty quiet although it was late lunch. Really well prepared smoked salmon salad.

We took our grandchildren here for Sunday lunch. We will certainly be returning. Very friendly service and really nice food, well presented and tasty. We felt it was great value for money. Quite extensive menu and specials board as well as cabinet food.

Having never been in this cafe before, we dropped in for brunch on a wild and windy day recently. The pumpkin soup I had was creamy, delicious and hot. The bowl had been pre-heated and stayed hot during the entire meal. It was accompanied by mildly curry-flavoured Japanese milk bread and a little coriander oil. Superb. Hubby had Eggs Florentine,...

This place used to be really bad, but we thought we would give it one more shot. Wow, what a change. Plenty of options on the menu, and very tasty looking cabinet food. Our litmus test is scrambled eggs. If you can't cook those right, we're out. Well, the breakfast was really very good, as was the coffee. I asked... More
