Cakes not Good Enough

Paying the going rate of £3.50 for a cake, I expect something lovely and homemade-like. Unfortunately the ingredients as a starting point are not good enough. I couldn't taste any butter in the cakes. A real shame that a local bakery with good quality ingredients isn't used. The cafe has a nice... read more

Overpriced food which was lacking in flavour. The baked salmon was reheated by the girl who served us. This resulted in the salmon becoming dry and overcooked. Apparently the local lecturers like it that way. Bully for them. We were not given the option which apparently we should have been given to not have it reheated. My cottage pie was... More

I contemplated having a spoonful of salad with my tuna jacket potato but for an extra 3 pounds on top of the 4pounds for the jacket potato, I decided not to. My bland tuna jacket potato was also cold! We had to give a hot chocolate back as it was handed to us stone cold, with hesitation the waiter did... More

Nice location and good coffee, was appalled by the lack of direction from the management. Huge queue and people left at the till while their coffee got cold and the manager is chatting with employee. Yes, it may have been work related but priorities need to be made. Bit of music may help the sort of cafeteria feel it has.

While visiting Liverpool with a friend, we stopped here for lunch. There was a special item on the menu, a local stew of sorts, which I ordered. Most enjoyable! I appreciate it when visiting a new place, to be able to sample some of the traditional menu items from there.

I regularly visit here for lunch with my mum and sister and have been doing since the Old Everyman Bistro closed. If you liked the food at the old bistro, you'll love this, I normally go for something pastry with a massive helping from the unlimited salad bar! It's really tasty food and served by friendly & polite staff. If... More

This place is a big canteen-style place, which seems to serve the university staff. Go just before or after the rush and you'll have a huge choice of places to sit. When I went, I had the Scouse. It was of the chunky variety, with meat and vegetable still ijn whole chunks, with a thin gravy. Such a generous portion,... More

I have visited the Piazza Cafe twice before, and each time I have found the service lacking. The first time the girl who served me was quite rude and I felt she just wanted to get rid of me, the second there were two young men working who seemed more interested in discussing their favourite movies than even acknowledging their...
