Capers is very central in town... More

Coffee was good but the waitress mixed up the orders. By the time we realised the other person had started eating mine. I didn't fancy someone elses food so went without. Disappointing. Other than that it was very busy. Table service would have been much nicer than queueing to order.

We are very sorry that happened. Table service would mean we would have to completely alter the experience and do away with the cabinet food. More

Such a good little place. Very healthy but still tasty breakfast options and very friendly service. If you are in town this is worth the visit!

Happened to be walking by Capers Epicurean and stepped inside. After seeing the delicious food in the display we decided to have a late lunch. I had the vegetarian soup and my partner had the vegetable lasagna with roasted beet salad with walnuts. Both dishes were wonderful. The workers are very friendly and Dee offered to take us to the...

We took my Mother in Law for break fast and can only say it was superb! Excellent ingredients, fresh and a great choice. Only one grumble from the MIL...her poached eggs were a little hard! Great deli area also...and it was packed for lunch when we left - highly recommend!
