Breakfast meeting last week at Cafe Raeward ... was impressed with large range of healthy cabinet food and cheery greetings by several staff. Enjoyed granola with lemon curd, yoghurt and berries. Delicious. It's ages since I've brought produce at Raeward, so again, impressed with the range of food available for purchase in the attached shop. Love Raeward's commitment to supporting... More

Good food, slick service, Great coffee. This seems to be a well run operation. Despite being very very busy, the service was attentive and personal. Very well done.

Whether you're after coffee/cake or something more substantial Cafe Raeward won't disappoint. Choose between great cabinet/counter food or from the menu. One of the best coffees in town. Very popular.

We went in and had a large group coffee / catch up. It was really good apart from having the fluffy missed from the order and having to go and ask the waiter / barrista about this twice before they actually made it. Not very pleasant for a kid if other 2 kids get their fluffies first and he sits... More

This is so handy when we are heading to the airport or heading home, it is bright, sunny, they have a lovely fire and couch for the colder weather. The food is very good but the coffee and the service is perfect! I find the food that is made hot like the chips etc is better than the food in... More

Excellent food with a huge variety to choose from. The staff are very friendly and they smile! The atmosphere is casual and welcoming and your plates are not rushed off your table to give you the message to leave.

Simply one of the best tasting breakfasts I have had in years. The big breakfast (farmers brekkie I think) is top notch and so is the coffee.. only problem is the cafe is on my daily route.. a problem I can live with!! 😊

There has been a disappointing lowering of service standards with a change of management - staff standing around talking, long waits for service and coffee

Every time I come here we get excellent service. Last time I ordered a granola cup for my daughter, it looked delicious. My father who is coeliac was also looking at it enviously so I went to ask if it was gluten free so he could try it. The staff didn't know so they said they would go and check... More
