Good selection of beverages and the band was great. The bar / restaurant is rather small with a nice patio in the front overlooking the water.

Had a few pints and the charcuterie/hummus platter here on Saturday night. Friendly staff and patrons. Picked a cool t-shirt as a souvenir from the chill town of Wakefield. Only wish they took credit cards as this was a bit of an inconvenience. Will return...More

Thank you for the review. If you are back know a side soup or salad is always an option (green or quinoa). But we have no fryer and have no plans to!

The Kaffe is an old school, small town bar that serves some great bar food. If you're looking for cold drinks, great soup and sandwiches, and live music some evenings, all while gazing out at the river, this is the place. It isn't fancy and...More
