Go here regularly for lunch and can honestly say I've never once had a bad experience, besides not being able to get a table.

Had a great lunch at this cozy cafeteria for a small sum of money. You can't expect more within this price class. Nice employees as well

I visited Cafe 52 for the first time with my husband to celebrate his birthday. We found the service very friendly, professional and attentive, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. Ideal for couples or a group of friends. Will definitely be returning to try some of the other things on the menu!

We were greeted by friendly helpful staff and were seated beside the open kitchen. It was quite busy and the ambiance was more like that of a pub than a restaurant. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but would depend on the type of evening you are looking for. If it's a quiet romantic dinner it probably isn't the place... More

As usual the food was awesome but the menu has changed and I never got my amazing mussels, what I did get was the most amazing burger I have ever tasted! So not disappointed at all. Seemed a bit like the day menu but there is nothing at all wrong with that. Please give it a go, smokers are welcome,... More
