Simple fare awaits at Stan Cafe - often the first restaurant you encounter when you hop off the bus or a taxi at Stanley Plaza. The welcoming diner-inspired interior is a great place to fuel-up on rotisserie chicken and French dishes, such as duck confit, pasta and sandwiches, as well as a couple of sneaky glasses of wine for the parents too.
