Cafe Europa has a genuine, home-cooked feel and flavor to all of its dishes. The experience dining at Cafe Europa is more like visiting your "fancy aunt"'s house and less like going out to a restaurant. It's a go-to in my family. The service is...More

The service was excellent and the atmosphere ok. It was noisy inside and out. The fresh fish had a thick coating on it and when peeled away not much fish. Wine was expensive and the amount served was VERY small.

I believe they stop serving at 2 PM but you probably could linger over coffee. It is a great go to cafe and try the one in Union Hill as well.
