I have traveled through Berwick a few times, and always try to make a point of stopping for lunch at the Union Street Cafe. Great selection of soups, salads, and specialties, and a wonderful selection for vegetarians. And one of my favourite features: they often have "day old soup" that you can buy by the litre, frozen from the day... More

This was my first visit to the Union Street Cafe but I have my doubts if it will be the last. My wife and I went with my son and daughter in law who live nearby and recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. I love the cafe style and the service was very friendly. I ordered the... More

Even with new ownership The Union Street Café is still a great place to eat. The atmosphere, staff and food are excellent. I recommend the Asian Nachos, Yummy!

First time at this restaurant. As I love seafood I had to try the fish and chips. The fish was haddock and probably the best feed of fish I had in a long time! Neither the fish nor the french fries was greasy. We will be going back again and checking out other choices on the menu!! My compliments to... More

Enjoyed a yummy lunch visit today with a friend at Union Street. Had the tomato Parmesan soup, tasty with an amazing in house tea biscuit. The soup was accompanied with a really yummy, fresh Caesar salad... perfect amount of garlic! Chef Chris continues to do an outstanding job! Service was very attentive and friendly. Decor is always fun, decorated beautifully... More

Yesterday we stopped at the Union Street for lunch. It is usually quite busy and it was yesterday too. However, after we were seated and water was passed from a nearby table where a group was lunching and not all expected had arrived, we were left with the menu for almost 15 minutes before wait staff re-appeared. A beer ordered... More

Got a take-out order of fish and chips. There was no cole slaw nor tartar sauce in the bag. Worst of all the fries must have came from the dregs of the cooker , they were overcooked and hard , and really not edible. The fish wasn't bad. Later that night I had a sore stomach trying to digest those... More

This place came highly recommended by friends, so we chose a wet Saturday to drive there for lunch. We weren't disappointed. The vacant parking spots right outside suggested it wasn't going to be busy - and we were only the second guests. But by the time we left, there were another half-dozen tables occupied. If you just look at the... More
