The food and drink are very good. They have a happy hour on some nights. There is both indoor and outdoor sitting so you can enjoy evening drinking.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that News Café had a conference facilities upstairs. This was super-convenient as its very quiet during the day. Once business is done, one can seamlessly slide downstairs to mingle and have a few cold ones. Great locationMore

Description
Adjacent to the Peermont Mondior hotel is the News Cafe restaurant who blends the temptation of their original menu with the latest culinary trends. Food becomes art!Everyone knows News Cafe serves a good cocktail – good enough to win awards. With a couple of offbeat additions to the cocktail menu, there’s still the iconic Daiquiri, Martini and Mojito all in some new disguises.
