The kind of place that is charming simply because it isn’t trying to be anything it’s not, Capers is a fail-safe place to settle in for a brunch, lunch, dinner or simply a coffee and newspaper session. The big dining hall type space is fresh, bright and a usual lunchtime here sees nearly every table filled. Make your way to a table and feel well looked after by friendly staff who know (no matter how busy it gets) what it takes to run this place like a well-oiled machine.
A huge menu covers all bases from breakfasts and shared platters to dinners and food ready-to-go from the cabinet, so whether you’re staying for a moment or a meal, Capers has you covered. A sweets cabinet to make your heart flutter, the clever makers at work in the kitchen craft up a number of decadent cakes, slices and vegan raw treats, which although may not be good for your diet, are surely good for the soul.
Got little ones in tow? Capers has the perfect little playroom to keep young minds entertained, so you can sip a turmeric latte without small hands getting in the way.
