A review of Take 5 Cafe is long overdue. I have been going to Take 5 for a few weeks now, and have never encountered a bad Americano. Actually, I’ve been very impressed with everything I’ve had there. Ianiv has noted one occassion of a slightly watery Americano, but I have yet to experience this. The coffee is super smooth with a nice whole bodied flavour. Never bitter or tart. I like that it is both bold and subdued at the same time.

I really love the atmosphere of the cafe. Slightly upscale, really comfortable, and so well designed. The materials are top notch - I especially love the little corner nook with the couches, chairs, and table. Great for casual meetings. And for that ‘wow’ factor.


I have had food from Take 5 on a couple of occasions. I have had one sandwich, amazing bread and really outstanding and creative fillings, as well as a very yummy cookie. Roland has given high praise to Take 5 food and coffee, and I intend to go back more often for a lunch of soup & sandwich. The prices for the food are higher than most cafes, but well justified in the gourmet quality you receive.
