Busy cafe - busier now I suspect with the closure of the information centre cafe across the road - offering a good range of menu items, good coffee, and slightly variable service. On our last visit the tomato soup was well made and flavoured; the salmon bagel a little pricy compared to (say) those from Wholly Bagels but fresh and with a generous serve of salmon; the main menu items are kiwi standards (various egg, bacon etc combinations for example) and are all competently done. Some outdoor seating on the pavement.

Great service!
Great food!
Amazing ambience!
Nothing to complain about here!
The garlic sourdough was delicious, and both of us are vegetarian and found our haloumi salad and pumpkin pakoras hit the spot perfectly.
A great experience, were able to chat comfortably and the waiter was brilliant.

Came here with four others for a mid-morning brunch on a weekday. Place was busy, but getting a table was no problem. Waitress was charming and to the point. No surprises on the menu - just your usual eggs benedict, french toast, bacon and eggs et cetera. I had the Sweetcorn & Polenta Fritters, which were very 'plain jane' and underseasoned. Tasted doughy. However if I have anything to say about Lido, it is to beg the owners to get their loos refurbished - absolutely appalling state. Overall, the feel of the place was relaxed but un-special.
