It is unpretentious beer-centred pub-crawl venue with small stage for local talent, and warm atmosphere great on a frigid evening. Staff are friendly, and hte price just right.

We had planned to go to The Blacksheep Inn but didn't want to drop 20 bucks on cover charge for music we didn't know, plus we were a little hungry so we tried Kaffe 1870 for the first time. We will definitely be back!! We loved it. Great atmosphere, good live music (no cover) and the food and drinks were... More

Relaxed atmosphere and very good food. If we were staying longer we'd go back. Had heard so much about about another restaurant in town but it was closed during 3 of our 4 nights in Wakefield and so we had to branch out. So glad we did. Service was friendly with good recommendations and we really enjoyed the food, beer... More

Stopped by on a whim as we noticed the Big Green Egg like BBQ out front of the restaurant. The staff was amazing and even made up a special meal for our two year old. The sandwichs we ordered were very good and went down perfectly with the cold brews. Could not have asked for more and will need to... More

This is a go-to pub in Wakefield... They have a decent selection of beer on tap, and have a small food menu. I have had their bar food, nightly food specials (Steak night, Pierogi night) and their brunch. The food specials are the best, but you have to know what nights they are served... If you are looking to tip... More

The staff, clientele and the offerings are great. I love the preserved, vintage interior (including their album cover collection), and the outdoor area with the view of the Gatineau River is sublime. If you're in the region, it's a go-to and altho' the Québec beer selection is great, the Caesars are killer.

I brought 5 friends from the US to Kafe 1870 to hear the cellist. My American friends and I paid at the door but while I found a seat ,drank a beer sample, and enjoyed the cellist's performance of the first suite, my friends waited outside. They told me they were refused service and made to feel unwelcome. WE left... More
