Review of Caffe Roma by sethop on Sun, 30 Oct 2005:

Love this place. Especially in winter, when it's very cosy. Wood panelling, fireplace, convivial atmosphere. Open very early, sometimes I go there after an all-nighter when everything else is shut :-)

Good reading material. I don't usually have any trouble snagging a copy of The Press to work my way through if I'm on my own.

Great food. I miss the salmon filo pastry they used to have, but there are plenty of other yummy things. Not the cheapest place in town but good value for the serving size and presentation - but frankly, I'd pay just for the atmosphere.

They're usually very busy so it can be wise to book, especially if there are more than two of you.

Service has always been good in my experience.

Coffee is generally excellent.

Oh and the napkins are great. You'll have to go just to check them out.
