Been going to NC for about 5 years. Ever since they updated the decor and the menu, service seems to have improved as well. Food is very good and service is normally a very close match.

An unplanned lunch turned out to be very tasty and enjoyable. We were supposed to be at another restaurant which did not workout. Arrived at News Cafe and the staff were very attentive and the food was lovely.

News cafe always has a great atmosphere and staff were very attentive - although they were very busy. The menu is great and I would recommend their Designer Benedicts. Added bonus is the coffee is even better. Definitely worthwhile.

We popped in for lunch and cocktails. Even though the place was not busy we waited a while to get service. It was as though nobody really wanted to be bothered. There were at least 4 waiters who stood chatting rather than serving or clearing...More
