At the suggestion of both of our grandchildren, the four of us drove to Cafe Mecina for a brunch location. You would never notice this very busy restaurant while walking on the sidewalk outside the building, except for the queue of customers waiting for a...More

My girlfriend and I were there this morning. We've heard so much about this place but got a little disappointed. Food is good but nothing too outstanding, too pricy for what you get. I had the salmon fume, it was pretty good but nothing that...More

We had breakfast/brunch at this pleasant venue and were delighted with our choice. The staff were friendly and very, very active. The venue is roomy and comfortable and was full when we arrived but, after a 5 minute wait, we had a table. The breakfast...More

Not when we were there, although we were staying in the hotel next door and it was our get away day so they were happy for us to go away and pack 'while queuing'.
