Bright, area with large seating area. Vast menu including vegetarian options, full breakfast menu and beer cocktails. Friendly staff and english menus available. Very popular especially around lunch times. Soups, salads and coffees make up the menu. Prices are very reasonable and the staff very friendly.

The food is quite nice here, but you loose your appetite with the way guests are handled when it comes to seating. Most restaurants seat their guess and most guests conform to the general rule of first come first serve. However, our experience was one of rudeness on both sides. Guests, regardless of when they arrived, simply sit down. I... More

Centrally located, within walking distance to the train station and downtown. A lot of students, young families, couples, colleagues enjoying their lunch break - a relaxed crowd. Happy places, happy faces! Always busy, always a friendly, open-minded atmosphere. Oh, and decent food as well!

Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Mezzo certainly shows their love for it with the Mezzo special. There were hams, cheses, egg, yoghurt, the biggest basket of bread fruits, salad and more. I was unable to finish it all, not for lack of trying. We didnt have the same 'too busy' experience like everyone... More

Over the many years we've visited this café we've never been disappointed. Mezzo embodies the European café culture, with it's simple but attractive interior and ample seating outside when the weather is warm. Yes, it does get crowded. And the wait staff lets you relax for as long as you want. But if you can score a table here it's... More

Very popular by locals. If your waiter or waitress is not nimble, you have to wait long time on a bar. But tastes good.

After a complete revamp the Café Mezzo reopened in November 2013. Thank god. The place is always buzzing, the food is great - there will be something for everybody, from builder to vegan - , the atmosphere is amazing. This is where Hanover feels like a metropole. I use it as breakfast bar, café (great cakes too), place for lunch,... More
