The Lime Tree Café & Kitchen
Nominated for Best Café 15 Comments
It scores top points for ambience and quality of food – the beef shipped in from the chain’s native New Zealand is succulent and perfectly cooked. The concept here works expertly. You choose what you want from the freshly prepared and incredibly tempting selection of meals at the counter, order and pay at the tills. Take a number and head to your seat and wait for staff to bring it over. Service is impressively swift, even at weekends when the café gets particularly busy. Don't be put off by the long queues at the counter though, because staff fly through the orders. And you won't have to wait very long for your food to arrive either. Waiters are attentive polite and efficient, and able to recommend food quickly and successfully. We particularly like the beef salad with roasted vegetables, carrot cake and triple berry smoothie. Also not to be missed is the flat white, which is as authentic as it gets in this city.
