The service was pretty poor because our water wouldn't quite standing at another table talking to people he obviously knew- and they obviously were ready for him to move on... More

I had to reserve a place for lunch for +/- 25 women for after a meeting. Cafe Strudel was less than a mile from our meeting place.

Great food, great service, but almost always a wait. However a wait is to be expected when the food is as good as it is. Seriously the best brunch/breakfast you can get in Columbia.

I have been wanting to try this place forever. I went on a Monday afternoon and it was not to busy. I was thrilled you could order breakfast or lunch. The food was awesome and so was the service. I will definitely be returning.
