I don't enjoy this News Café. I've been twice for business meetings, and both times the service has been a disappointment, the coffee awful. Wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

I had a hamburger on my first visit and the beef patty was obviously from the freezer. What a disappointment! However, the milkshake (really think) and cappuccino were the reasons why I returned. The latte was kinda weak so do order with caution.
