Dropped on a wet rainy day, lovely staff (owners?). Food great, large flat white coffees were weak & milky (only one shot of coffee?). Asked a free coffee but that's not the point, should've been correct the first time.

We call in here with our granddaughter, mainly for the curly fries and a coffee, but have had a pizza night here with our staff in the past. Friendly staff, nice food and good value for money.

Our friends and family and selves visit Kava regularly. The food is consistently good, as is the friendly service. If you like mushrooms, try their creamy ones.... Mmmm mmmm! The hours here are very good and the kitchen is always open. Love this place! 😊

Below average food. Looks like it has sat there for a week. Dirty bathrooms and very rude owner. Do not go here there are plenty of much better cafes.
