Came here several times for breakfast and never bored.. Always order the same menu.. avocado salad .. my favorite for breakfast ..

My daughter and my husband always try different menu .. and always looks and taste good ..

They sell pastry too .. the pastry and bread are always fresh from the oven ..

The price is reasonable ..
The service is always good .. the waitresses are very helpful ..

They have enough parking lot and have valet service too.

Will come back again ...

An amazing night of super service, great Tapas and terrific Sangria treats with friends - service was very good and food tasted like we were in Spain again - highly recommended on a daily basis with a great menu, superior coffee and good location.

Dear gregers1Indonesia,

Chef Nicola and I really appreciate your review! The Sangria & Tapas night was intense for us, but ultimately very rewarding to see how much our guests enjoyed our food and how fast it was going as soon as we were serving it.

I hope that you will soon try again Komunal 88 for a more conventional dining experience and that we shall have the pleasure of your company and that of your friends and family.

All the best,

JC

This is my neighbourhood restaurant/café of choice. Friendly, consistent food quality, pleasant with changing menu. Not cheap but fair prices. Fresh cuisine, very conscious of their eco footprint (eg. no paper napkins, no disposable package for take away)
