This is a coffee shop that serves excellent coffee and the best cakes on the island. The cakes range from traditional Greek to chocolate cakes covered in chocolate!
It's heaven for cake lovers!
There's one in Rhodes Town about a 2minute walk from the bus station, down the road from Mothercare. There's also a branch on the main street in Pefkos.
A lovely little cafe next to the top station of the water-powered Victorian cliff railway at Lynton with gorgeous views of the multicoloured sea-cliff face of Countisbury Hill and towards Wales across the Bristol Channel. A good espresso or cappuccino to go with peaceful enjoyment of natural beauty.

Christchurch has a certain line in unusual transportation/dining experiences that has to be unique. Not only can you eat while riding around town on an old tram, but you can also do so in a gondola. Okay, I exaggerate – the Summit Cafe where you dine is at the top of the gondola – but it’s close.
You can of course use the gondola to go up to the ridge of the Port Hills at any time during the day, and the views over the city, or down the other side to Lyttelton Harbour, are superb. And hiring a bike there to speed back down is a thrill, albeit a mild one by NZ standards. But getting up there just before dusk, in time to see the sun set across the plains and the city lights come on, well, it’s romantic enough to bring a tear to an All Black’s eye. And the food is worth staying for too.

A little bit of Spain, right at the heart of Little Britain. The Botanic Gardens are very Victorian – lots of hospital-corner flower beds filled with roses. Ho hum. But the old museum curator’s house bursts with Hispanic flavours, courtesy of its chef. Tapas, tortillas, spicy chorizo, herbs and veg from the garden at the back, a shot of strong coffee … it’s enough to make you forget where you are.

Buy your coffee beans, have them ground, Gaggia and Bodum kit for sale as well as old sweet jars full of bright wrappers and lots of bars of chocolate.
A fabulously unpretentious, comfortable, welcoming cafe which wears its history, tradition and quality on its working sleeve and oh, to smell the coffees - roasted just next door, the smoke and steam bellowing out into the street before you!
Fine, local home-made food and a sweet counter to drool over with fabulous Cumbrian tray bakes.
Many of the Cumbrian market town dwellers look down on Carlisle and many areas have all the character and panache of a sodden sponge skewered on the branch of a wintry tree in a park in Ordsall but John Watts is to make any Carlisle visit worthwhile to the power of 100.
City Centre pedestrianised area, just down from HSBC
It's only a simple cafe in the Grand Bazaar, but the tables on the "street" provide a lovely, inexpensive spot to sit and watch the world go by. You'll find it at a junction just north of the musical instrument section, not far off the goldsellers' street.
Tampere is situated between 2 large lakes, and to get a great view of the city, lakes and surrounding forest, head to the Pyynikki ridge. There you will find an observation tower (1€) with a cafe at the bottom serving tasty fresh doughnuts. There are also some lovely short walks in the immediate area and a swimming beach with volley ball in the summer.
The food is ok but the wines! A truly impressive and not very expensive collection of interesting Italian wines. They have two places, curiously enough separated by another cafe. Choose the right one where all the wines are! By the way, the brioche (croissant) and cappuccino are great.
14-16 South Frederick St
Little Avalon is a cafe just a long enough walk from the fantastic flat sandy beach to dry off after a long days body boarding or surfing. If you like animals visit Helena the chicken and her friends for free at the pets corner directly oppsite (but watch out for Lloyd the cheeky talking turkey!). I would have a strawberry crush and a mars bar melt (it's delicious!). The best snacks in Cornwall!!!

Cross the road from the beach look for the sign and walk towards the caravan site.
A small, traditional but attractive cafe. Its speciality is fish and chips and these are splendid. Fresh, hot and cooked to perfection with the fish in very light crispy batter. You are guaranteed a warm welcome from Anna and the cafe's seafront location is a beautiful setting. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

For the tyke with a sensitive palate, now the £ looks down disdainfully on the Swiss Franc, it's worth a visit to Rolle, in the Canton of Vaud, about 25 kms from Geneva. Filets de perche, an amazingly delicate fish, from the Lake Leman (fifty yards away), where they have their own fisherman. Drink their own wine from the local vineyard. Perfect chips
For the Cafe du Port, take the Route du Lac for 25 kilometres, from Geneva Airport. At the entry to Rolle, follow the sign that says "Port". Booking essential

A lovely front room style cafe/bar. Relaxed vibe, friendly waitress/owner, comfy sofas, interesting wines, nice big cups of tea, and all at very decent prices.
Music was occassionally a bit naff and paintings are not all that, but we had a lovely chilled out time.
Opens 15h00-late in the winter, and 17h00-late in the summer.
The Somerset Hotel on Elizabeth Street is a brilliant place to stay. It has amazing views over Hyde Park and the Anzac Memorial. There is very good room service with people coming to clean your apartment everyday when you are out. It is near the centerpoint tower and not far from a good pool called Boy Charlton. It is salt water and suspended on stilts over the actual harbour so you get really good views. There is also a brilliant open air cinema on Lady Mcquaries Point. The screen apparently folds down (we didn't get to go there but i reccommend it anyway.)
There are two really good places to eat. One is called Sushi King - it is on George Street and it does the best sushi in the world. The other is the Lindt Cafe on Martin Place - it is really good and they do this great hot chocolate (you get this jug with hot milk in and a jug with melted chocolate in and you pour them in the mug at the same time the result is an amazing rich lovely cup of hot chocolate).
Of course I also reccommend the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House (my dad conducts there.)
A 365m high space age tower. A zooming lift takes you to a viewing platform with fabulous vistas all over Berlin. For a meal or snack pop up to the revolving Tele-cafe, and watch Berlin spin slowly by whilst you enjoy a cake or, if it is warm, even an ice cream!

Simply the best Thai restaurant in Leeds. Tucked away behind the impressive Town Hall (or City Hall, I always get them mixed up, basically the massive hall on Headrow).
Cheap with mains at less than a fiver and starters about £2. Friendly staff and a convivial atmosphere when it's full. Keeps funny opening hours though, its open through the day but closes at 10pm.
Worth popping into the Victoria Hotel just along the road afterwards for a swift one.

A really rather lovely bar, just out of town, but definitely worth the little walk. A relaxed atmosphere with massive battered sofas to fall into, and a mix n' match attitude to the rest of the furniture. Usually has a bit of an exhibition on the walls too. Definitely worth eating there too. Small but perfectly formed menu which never fails to taste absolutely gorgeous (lamb shank being my particular favourite at the moment), which can be eaten in the informal restaurant bit in the back of the bar whilst watching the chefs do their thing in the open kitchen.
Reasonably priced too. Separate daytime and evening menus.
Another excellent place to either start a night or just to have a few quiet bevvies in.

Cafe bar by day, thronging bar by night. Another excellent bar with an excellent music policy (bearing in mind my bias towards indie/rock).
Does do food but I haven't indulged yet as it's always been rammed to the gills when I've been, usually late in the night.
