Just across the street you find a nice cafe for breakfast. Good service, classic variety of breakfast menus. Just as you like it and are used to it. Price is ok, do not forget to give service fee !

When we come to St John's we try to visit this restaurant. Local patrons are always here and although it is small there always seems to be some room. Service is quick and personal and very happy at their job. Had their Pea Soup and...More

My co worker and I went here today for lunch. I had the triple club it was awesome real turkey. The salad very good and dressing as well. The service was excellent. Everything fresh and homemade.

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.

Had a good meal and enjoyed the food. Well prepared with fast service. I had a western sandwich which was very good. Good selection in the menu.
