Friendly staff, Enjoyed the banting bowl... Nice to see that more eating places are accommodating banting menus. Enjoyed the filter coffee. Nice atmosphere to meet friends & family just to catch up.

They serve a great cuppachino Service at times slowish! They tend to forget a request for a glass of water. A very dangerous step into the Cafe which is well indicated but never the less unexpected.

We had a midweek dinner on what appeared to be a quiet night. The food was clearly pre cooked and pretty average. Even more so when you consider what your can get in other parts of the country for the same price tag. Very disappointing evening out

As far as I am concerned coffee berry has the friendliest most efficient staff, the best coffee, the much more relaxed atmosphere now with the changes at the cascades lifestyle center being complete and the greatest selection of fresh and taste bud pleasing food.
