We both had a fry and it was very tasty & not greasy like some. Sausage was very nice & good coffee. Great buzz inside & very quirky deco. Hidden gem.

We'd rented an apartment nearby and just happened upon the Harlem Café, what a find and we had breakfast there on all 3 mornings of our stay! The décor is quirky and very interesting including the seashell tables and the mish mash of different of furniture! I found the staff to be very friendly even though they were busy on... More

I almost don't want to write this review on Tripadvisor and keep this wee gem of a place a secret for myself, it's so amazing! We arrived and hadn't booked, it was very busy, but the kind lady(I presume she was the owner?) gave us a table. I ordered Gluten Free fish and chips...battered fish..even the thought of it is...

If you only think of this place as Larry's Piano Bar, you have missed an absolute gem. Larry's is long gone and this beautiful little oasis of calm is right up there with the best eateries in the land. The fantastic decor and really comfortable seating aside, the food is amazing. Full complements to the chef and we were only... More

Elegant setting and lovely atmosphere:) Just had the Salmon and Scrambled Egg Bagel, it taste extremely nice! Thick scrambled egg with smoked salmon adding cream cheese taste sooo good, a great start of my day in this frezzy cold weather! It's just perfect:)

We had not only the best gluten and lactose free fish and chips, but one of the fish and chips I've ever had. It was a busy Saturday, but staff were friendly and very helpful and I loved the decor of the place too. I will definitely be back soon.

Very unusual setting; eclectic and bohemian. Popular restaurant I've used for breakfast before. Although very busy and on a Sunday morning, they were able to quickly accommodate our party of 5 by turning tables around with no delay. Breakfast menu a little limited in that didn't seem to be the option to add extras, although the standard offerings were fine... More
