The Dendy Deli used to be a good place to go and have a drink or a meal. The place could definitely do with a big renovation and they could lower the prices on some of their products. The food quality there is average and there are definitely better places to go to if you want to eat or drink.... More

Dendy Deli is a well established coffee shop/ cafe that serves all day dining options. Especially good to have a quick snack either prior to seeing a movie upstairs or after. Their pizzas are food as is their breakfast menu ( available at anytime).

A great menu range and food presented well and tasty. Generous portions. Service quick so if you have limited time before movies a good choice. Seating in booths best choice.

I use this establishment reasonably frequently - either as a place to meet for a casual business meeting, or more frequently, pre or post movies. Comfortable café, buzzy atmosphere, big menu, good food, adequate portions, reasonable prices and unpretentious. Staff are generally attentive and efficient - particularly the young casuals - but the (assumed) owners appear a bit bored but... More

Just had nice lemon meringue with hot chocolate there. While it's not a fancy restaurant the atmosphere is nice and casual. The staff is very friendly

Dendy Deli is quick service and good food with an extensive menu. Prices are very reasonable and usually can get in without booking. Very large serves so entree sizes quite adequate.
