  • Suited to fine taste? The Suter cafe serves exquisite food down to a fine art! This place is perfectly situated, with views overlooking The Queens Gardens and pond; enjoy indoor or outdoor seating. Bubbly Staff will make you feel at home. lt is also a child friendly cafe with a high chair and toys. Take the kids to feed the ducks after lunch. They'll love it!
  • Terrible, very loud, had to practically shout to be heard. Lady behind counter wearing pearls and directing staff , very rude and chewing gum ? constantly. Very bad form and should not be tolerated by management. Won't waste my time coming here again.
  • I love the new cafe and gallery area it is an amazing renovation. Lunch at the cafe was really enjoyable.
  • Very nicely done. The place had just reopened following renovations. Looks great. A good collection of art. A nice looking cafe although was very crowded.
  • I love this cafe and so does my boy. Would love to see wifi their so I can take some clients there for a coffee and share what I need too on my computer.
