We had breakfast here twice. The food was good, service was friendly. The eggs were nicely prepared. Reasonable prices. If we lived in this area, Classic Cafe would be our go-to breakfast spot.

This is one of my favourite places for breakfast in St John's. Everything is fresh and cooked to perfection. Amazing fish cakes with great sides. Coffee is always filled up. Really busy.

We ate here two mornings and the food was very good with bottomless coffee! We also tried their fish and chips which were just OK!

Very disappointing - terrible dinner, total waste of money. Wish I had paid twice the price to eat somewhere else.

Went there twice. Excellent value. Very fresh and tasty. Service very good. May have to wait for a table but worth it. Fabulous home made baked beans.

Excellent service, good atmosphere. The view from the outdoor patio is picturesque. Food was great so was the coffee.

We often visit in St. John's and always have a meal at Classic Cafe. We've done breakfast, lunch and dinner-this a truly a place that can do it all. Location is great for more site seeing afterward and the view of the harbor is terrific.

If you are able to have an opportunity to eat a hearty breakfast and then hike around Signal Hill, St. John's Newfoundland...this is your stop! I simply loved the staff here. They know when to leave you alone ...and when you need a tea refill....More
