Landmark: The Oval
Like any other art cafe in terms of food selection. Food is good. Best bread in town. Outdoor seating is nice. Service can vary depending on how busy it is. Friday night they have a live band playing salsa music and that's when it is best. Dance floor is poorly designed, though, it is at the entrance of the only exit to the outdoor seating, meaning everyone is trying to walk through. Parking is confusing since a new road is being built it is considered city parking to park in front, therefore you can have youre car clamped which is not the best experience anyone wants to have. Ill suggest people park at their underground parking. Overall the best place to go to for coffee on a cold evening.
I was there last Saturday for the Made of Taste Festival courtesy of Singleton and the food was amazing, I had the Kebab Lamb and some mashed potatoes on the side (The best Mashed Potatoes I've ever had!) The meal went very well with my singleton cocktails preferably the Mint tulip cocktail!!! Great food! Amazing cocktails and Perfect Ambiance! :)
I am a sucker for the bread and brownies from Art Cafe. I love the ambiance at the Oval (who doesn't) but I must admit, the services are absolutely disappointing at their Oval branch. We waited over an hour before we finally received our drinks, who is going to order a meal after that? Not me. I drank and left grumpy. I understand the crowd can be big, but one of the most important things in a restaurant (other than the food) is the customer service. But still love the bread and brownies and their Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne (which I haven't had at the oval of course).
