Come Escape the OrdinaryTM at Symposium Cafe Restaurants

The first Symposium Cafe restaurant opened over 26 years ago and quickly became the go-to dessert place and a favourite local restaurant. But our customers wanted more. So, we kept our guest-focused full service and our beautiful inviting restaurant interiors, but expanded the menu to include breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night meals - along with full bar service and cosy exterior patio outdoor dining. That’s us Redefining the Cafe ExperienceTM
